Keeping Him Safe

Thanks for the post from Sylvester Campbell

Security has gotten even more important to me since I had the baby. Becoming a mom brought out the caretaker side of me and although I’m reasonably responsible anyway, it’s tough being in charge of someone else’s wellbeing. I spent the first weeks as a new mom securing the house, although it was already pretty good. I fixed that window in the back that’s been broken forever and I took some time to look at a site for alarm systems richmond and see if a security system made sense. I child proofed nearly everything in the townhome and even my dog got into the action! I taught him some new tricks and how to alert me if he hears any noises he thinks are out of order. I feel much better now about my ability to care for my son and I know I’m a good mom, although there are times when I nearly have a panic attack thinking about his safety! It’s only going to get worse once he gets a driver’s license!

  1. Hello Maryann. I also live in the Seattle area (saw your post on Twitter) and I am a Stay-at-home-mom. Both of my children at school for the first time this year. I can relate to what you are going through because since I have become mother my sense of security has been seriously rocked. Despite living in a safe area, I still often wake up at night and check on my kids, even if I know that they are deep asleep in their beds and there is no any danger around. It must be a part of motherhood :-)
