When it was time to fetch the kids, I couldn't find them anywhere. With mounting panic, I ran around, calling out their names. I found them on the tenth floor.
"What are you doing here? You know you are not allowed", I sobbed, collapsing in relief.
"But Mamma, Little Anita is scared of cats, and there are cats on the stairs. So we left her home."
"Just because you are doing good, doesn't mean it is okay to disobey your mother", I yelled.
I know I should be proud of them, but right then, I was just one scared Mamma.
