The construction site across the street temporarily became a police car parking lot.
G is for gun

One Sunday morning, I woke up to care for our son. Then, I wrote a blog post.

Here’s the Tweet I wrote hours later:

Woke up w/baby. Blogged. Heard voices outside. Saw cop w/gun drawn. Grabbed & moved baby. Appears guy left w/o cops. Hmm. Now church. #fb

I tweeted that on Jan. 16, 2011.

The week before on Jan. 8 the Tucson shooting seriously injured U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and took the lives of many innocent people.

When I looked out my window and saw the officer had a gun drawn on a man, I broke mommy rule #2 — never wake a sleeping baby. I did that so I could follow rule #1 — always protect the baby.

I ran down our short hallway with my son in my arms and tried to explain to my sleeping Hubby what was taking place in front of our house. My mind raced with visions of bullets hitting Enzo’s room.

After it was all over, Enzo didn’t care what took place outside his bedroom window. Hubby suggested I figure out a better way to panic, so he didn’t think there was a problem with our son. I fretted about the lack of information about “police incidents” in our neighborhood.

If I had not stayed up to blog that morning, I would have missed the entire event.
