[child] The perils of a new neighborhood
went out exploring on her bike today. She took her mother’s cell phone, and was admonished to call me as needed, and to give progress reports. This is a pretty suburban neighborhood, and the streets all look pretty similar, so she got turned around and became lost. She called me, very calm but a little nervous, and told me what street she was on. Since *I* don’t know the neighborhood either, I pulled up Google Maps and talked her in to a safe landing.
And she handled it very well.
