9-1-1

Somehow I always thought this would be a little farther down the road.

I thought Zack would be older, perhaps want to see the police cars or see if what I say happens really happens but apparently he couldn't wait that long.

Last night, my son called 911.

I'm not quite sure how it happened. He was playing with the phone and must have managed to hit a series of buttons. When I heard the phone the lady on the other end said if you would like to make a call please hang up. So I did.

About 15 minutes later the phone rang. Jake tried to answer it but no one was there. Then about 10 minutes after that the police car pulled into our driveway. (You know if someone was really dying we'd be dead by then.....)

Jake was getting ready to go to his home meeting so he was in a suit and I was in my sweater from work. I'm sure the officer thought we were just getting ready to go out for Valentine's Day. He didn't even come onto the back porch, let alone into the house where we had Zack locked in the dog kennel safely tucked away in his bed.

So, there you have it. We have officially been broken in. And now... the phone gets put up on a higher shelf and we need to get batteries for the one that doesn't work because as far as he's concerned it's not a phone if it doesn't beep. (Please tell me why it is someone can't make a toy phone that actually LOOKS like a real one? They would make a fortune... that and a remote control)

Just buy Zack a real phone that he can play with-- and also a remote... Sam has a remote at home designated for his use only!

We tried taking the batteries out of the old remote and a cordless phone...our son wasn't fooled for a minute. If it doesn't beeb or make fun noises...poo on that.

I have seen fake cell phones that look like real phones that beep and ring at Walmart.

oh no! i can't believe it took so long for them to get there...that's a little worrisome.

i agree with "dd," remotes and phones with out batteries don't light up or beep...not nearly as fun!
