Today, I’m in the running for “World’s Best Mom” award. Reason: As you may know, it’s every little boy’s dream to see a fire truck up close and personal. Today, I made that dream come alive for Pierson.
We returned some library books then stopped by our new house (which is currently a work in progress) to visit Michael. I stepped out of the car, unlocked the doors (or so I thought), shut mine, and went to get Pierson. I had actually LOCKED the doors with our only key and Pierson inside.
A quick call to the police, a visit from the firemen, and in 10 minutes, Pierson was freed.
I choose to think that I win the “BEST MOM AWARD” because when Pierson got out, he was very excited to see the fire truck and the police car. So, we’re planning another firemen date next month. I just have to figure out what scheme I’ll use to get them to our house next time. I wonder if they’ll catch on….
Kidding. I’m only kidding.
***the above post was written tongue-in-cheek because I feel like a total moron as every neighbor within sight was peeking out their windows to see why the new folk had the fire department at their house… Just another day in my life, folks. Just another day.
