After my morning shower, I heard Heston wake up and I got him out of bed and got the kiddos in their high chairs and ready for breakfast. Then I heard a knock on the door. A sheriff's car was parked in my driveway. I welcomed the officer in to the house, having no idea what he was there for! He proceeded to tell me that someone had dialed 911 from this location and the dispatcher heard a child's voice in the background. I stared at him for a couple seconds and realized that in the 2 minutes I took my shower and handed Sadie the phone, she must have dialed 911. What a smart cookie! I couldn't teach her to dial numbers if I wanted to! I thanked the officer and after we had a laugh about the situation he headed back out.
After the false alarm from this morning we kept to ourselves. I haven't let Sadie play with the phone after that, and in lieu of the flashing buttons on the phone, I let the kids go wild with my canning lids and some kitchen utensils and they seemed happy enough.
Oh Sadie, if you don't keep me on my toes, I don't know who will!
