you know you're a special needs mommy when...

Your heart clenches and skips a beat 

any time you hear sirens in the general direction of your child's school. 

And your knees buckle with relief when your phone doesn't ring a few minutes later...

I hear ya.
Across the street from our house is a pond. Sometimes I forget that it's there because we have put the fear of god into our boys in regards to going near that pond.
Then after the other day, that fear we have instilled...well, lets just say I was grateful....because the police and fire dpt were searching the pond for a little girl.
Oh! My stomach did sink and my heart flopped...thinking that could easily have been one of my boys and thank God it's not.
Thankfully all turned out well. No little girl hurt.
