3 year olds are too sneaky for their own good

This morning, I was woken when my dad came into my room, tossed Taylor on my bed, and said, “Get dressed. The police are coming.”

APPARENTLY

Taylor tried to follow Meredith (the original) to work this morning, and instead ended up standing outside, in the middle of the road, all by herself, before anyone else in the house was even awake. My dad noticed her silky by the garage door, saw that the door was unlocked, and started looking for her in the house. When he couldn’t find her inside, he headed out, and found Taylor standing near a very nice woman, who had called the police.

All before 6 am.

Taylor knew she was busted, and wouldn’t look at the policemen, even when they tried to give her a sticker.

The boys were more than impressed, so we did the only thing we could think of….

And took a picture. 

The rest of the morning has been spent fortifying the outside doors with locks and chains.

  3. One time I was trying to send a fax to Mexico and had the fax machine set on automatic redial. The international country code is 011. I programed it wrong and it dialed 911 for over an hour.

    The state police broke into my office building to check on us because Hello! We had called 911 for an hour straight at 11pm at night.

    Good times!

  8. Baby, who loves her play phone, found her uncle's phone that looks surprisingly similar. Except that instead of playing a cute little tune when she pushes a certain button, the uncle's phone dials 911. Had an interesting conversation with a police dispatcher, who tried several times to make sure I wasn't being forced to say that everything was fine before letting me off the phone.

  9. How awesome of a cop to let your kids sit in his car. And smile for the picture. But mostly YOU'RE awesome because you got out a camera to document the whole thing.

  10. Me: "This is going to sound weird, but my boys want a picture with you... Is that okay?"

    Them: "Sure! You know what would be cool? If we let them SIT in the CAR!"

    Boys: "AWESOME!"

  11. That is a great picture. I love how Taylor wouldn't talk to them...not even for a sticker. Hey, they were strangers, right?

  12. I highly doubt that she wouldn't talk to them because they were strangers, so much as she knew she was busted.

  13. (Because she usually talks to everyone, I have to add.)
