The youngest 9-1-1 caller

Two guesses as to which son just received the honor!

P.S. I am so embarrassed!

oh my word! you've got to be kidding! Hard to believe that Silas could manage that, although with kids, anything is possible!

So, how many trucks/cars arrived at your home?

Don't feel too bad---Jalen did that I think 3 different times at my mom and dads when he was maybe 1yr old. He would go into mom's room and grab the phone and I guess his fingers were just in the right position(smart kid huh?) They came to the house once and they called the other times. Talk about making you feel like you weren't watching your kid!!!

Your husband's youngest brother did that once -- only he was considerably older (10 or 11, I think). And, yes, within 5 minutes the police were at the door! Thankfully, the police sided with the mom when the caller complained that the mom was going to discipline him. Hold on to your hat -- the excitement may not be over for several years to come. Love you all.

Wow! What an embarrassing thing to happen! Hope was playing with our phone the other day, but I don't think she actually called anyone! Glad it was you and not me! Ha!

Oh my WORD!!! So far, we've escaped THAT! I just know Kent is just waiting for a day when the house is a wreck and I have my hair tied in a knot before he dials them!

Thankfully not a soul came to the door; they just "returned" the call to check on us.
Angie, I was in the process of moving furniture so we could shampoo carpets, and I was so afraid they would come, look in the house, and think I was trashy! :-) You know the type that doesn't watch their kids or clean their house. . .yikes. Not the label I want!

Bless your heart...How mortifying! Glad that no one came to the door. =)

Thanks for your nice comment on my blog. It will be nice staying in contact with you again now that I'm back home.

Enjoyed the below post of the train ride and all. Looks like a fun family day. Have a great weekend.

My nieces and nephews called 9-1-1 more than once from the phone in the upstairs lounge where they used to play. It was advertised heavily on TV during those days since it was fairly new so they thought it was cool to dial it. They had no clue. But fortunately (I think) we always received a call back before all the blinking lights arrived. Another nephew dialed it when he was just learning to stand up on his own. The phone was on the end table and his hands, like Julie said, were in the right position (think number pad on an old touch tone phone with a cord).

Been there, done that! Preston did this a number of times; when he would get upset his first reaction would be to call 911. Sometimes they would call us back, but we have had them show up at the door too. We just explained we had a special needs son. It was embarrassing, though.
