Small Town Living

The nice part about living in a small town: When you don't know what you're doing, someone else always does.

There is nothing like getting a phone call in the wee hours of the morning....especially from your 13 year old:)
Our conversation went something like this:
  • Me-What's wrong!
  • Son-Giggling....
  • Me-This better be good!
  • Son-Can we walk to the house and play some pool? And I need a key to get in.
  • Me-At 3 a.m.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Why are you calling me at 3 a.m. and asking such a thing as that?
  • Son-Well we're not sleepy and want something to do. I thought Dad was going to work early.
  • Me-Not 3 a.m. early!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!You know where the key is....and DO NOT DISTURB ME AGAIN UNLESS IT'S SOMETHING REAL BAD!
What was a graduation celebration at my friend S's house for her son C, turned into a spend the night camp out in "her" yard/roam the neighborhood on foot expedition:) lol!!!!!! See what I mean about "boys."
The old saying is true...."boys will be boys!"
As hubby and I tossed and turned the rest of the morning.....I couldn't help but grin:) I recall what it was like being a kid and all the mischievousness that went with it. BTW...scares me to death. The only thing different in my case was.....I KNEW BETTER THAN TO CALL MY MOM AT 3 A.M. AND ASK SUCH A THING!! Now that my friend is the difference between boys and girls!!
All Hubby and I could say this morning was, "we have a lot to look forward to!"
Please shout out a prayer for us! Raising these two is going to be fun:)
The bright side of least he does call me and tell me what's going on! For that I am glad....just not 3 a.m. glad!
As for punishment......any ideas?
I need a nap already!
P.S. I thought I might should clarify a few things, just in case you think my kids are always left unsupervised. My friend lives next door and who would have thunk it? Lesson learned.....if your kids are sleeping in a tent in the yard....set up booby traps to catch them if they try and sneak off:)

Carrie you have two great kids! They take after their Mom and Dad! Trust me, you have nothing to worry about. You two are doing a wonderful job with them. Keep up the good work! Love YA!

I bet your heart stopped when the phone rang at 3 a.m. thinking it was maybe about your mom's transplant.

You know me, being the mean person that I am, I would secretly set his alarm clock for 3 a.m. for the next few days........

I hope these boys will continue to always feel like they can call us at any time.....
