Just call 9-1-1!

So... I'm trying to do that good mom thing and take each of the kids out individually on a date with mom. We drew names and Sydney came up first so we went to Target where she picked out a stuffed dog and a couple mini-dogs with her money. Who'd have thunk it huh? She is such an animal lover! We went to lunch at her favorite place - Cafe Rio, picked out a treat for her sisters and headed home. It was way fun. I love some one on one time! No prob!

Yesterday was McKenna's turn. We headed to Old Navy where my cell phone rang about 3 times. Sydney was babysitting with her friend Emilia. Brigham was asleep so they really only needed to watch Izzy. I was getting frustrated that they needed to call so often, until Sydney called and told me that Izzy had dialed 9-1-1! I kind of didn't believe her because Izzy hasn't ever called anyone and I figured maybe she had dialed some random numbers then hung up. I was wrong. She then called after the police had left. EEK!! I am just waiting for Child Protective Services to show up. So McKenna and I hurried to figure out which clothes she wanted to buy with her money...by the way, she picked the cutest outfit! We hurried to Target and she got some flip-flops then rushed to Smart Cookie where we got the yummiest treats and a few sugar cookies to bring home. So when I get home I tell Sydney she had obviously tried to be a good babysitter and could have a cookie to share with Emilia while I talked to Izzy about "crying wolf". Isabel is heartbroken she can't have a cookie with pink frosting and amid the tears she tells me that Syd had told her to call.....wait just a second!!! Are you telling me you were doing what you were told??? So to make my long story a bit longer...Sydney got frustrated and sarcastically told Izzy that maybe she should dial 9-1-1 if she was so upset and well, Izzy did what she was told for the first time in her cute life. So neither of them got cookies until much, much later. They got a strict lecture and a memorable experience! My mom said I would laugh later but the truth is I was laughing at the time! I just had to put on the so serious face and let them know what was up then laugh my head off later. Can you just see sweet Sydney's face when she answered the door for the policeman?

Now Izzy is wondering when her date is? I'll fill you in on where we end up for that one!

LOL I love it. Alex called 911 last month and I had to answer the door to a cop only after getting properly dressed. He was ready to knock my door down. EEK!! Gotta love kids.

That is so funny! I saw the cop car and was wondering what was going on. I waited and he left pretty quickly so I figured it wasn't anything major. Always something exciting happening at the Fairbanks!

Oh man, that is classic. I'm just waiting for Ethan to call 911; you know it's going to happen. I can't wait to hear about Izzy's date. It should be a fun one! She is such a cutie.

Thats Awesome... Thats all I can say. I remember calling 911 when I was a kid because I was scared of my niebors dog.

Hilarious! I don't think that will ever happen to me since my kids rarely, if ever, do what they're told! Gotta love 'em!
