Waiting for the police. . .
Yes, you read the title correctly. With our "record," I will not be surprised if they show up at any moment - thanks to dear Ethan!
It so happens that while I was in bed this morning (Seems acceptable to me since I am supposed to be there.), Seth had been hit with some type of Mark Twain like inspiration, for he was reading me the first two chapters of his book about "Ed and Fred." While I was enjoying the work of his pen, Ethan took it upon himself to open the front door to some strange woman who wanted to know where his parents "are." His "Daddy is gone, and Mommy is in bed." Seth walked out in time to hear her tell him to "shut the front door and lock it." Seth had never seen the woman which makes the matter more puzzling. I am very thankful it was not a "bad guy" since he would have been given free access to our place! Now, I am waiting to see if we get another knock at the door to check on the well being of our children. (We are such horrible parents, you know! :-)
Meanwhile I am going to get dressed and have a conference with a certain young man!
Hmmm - now where did I put my most pregnant looking outfit that will draw sympathy from an officer. . .
DISCLAIMER - After conversing with "The Culprit," I came to realize that the boys did come to my room to let me know someone was at the door. With the rate of speed at which I now move, I told them to ignore it. If it were a friend or neighbor, they would have first called. One son chose to obey, and the other, well. . .you know the story!
DISCLAIMER #2 - For those of you who are relatively new to my blog - Last year around this time, Troy and the boys were wrestling, and someone called the police because they "heard kids screaming." They obviously did not stick around to realize it was actually squeals and laughter! You can imagine our shock when officers were knocking around eleven at night! That is the incident to which I was referring in this post.
