Will, "There was fire and I got to spray the hose!" Sarah was already looking for a snack....
Mom: "Hey Sarah, can you fill me in sweetheart, did Will set something on fire?" Sarah: "Nope, the neighbors car was on fire, do we have any Oreos?" Will: "I got to be a Fireman and there was fire and I got to use the fire hose by myself!" Mom: "Uh, Sarah, can you give me some more information........so far we've got a car on fire and Will has joined the Gilbert Fire Dept."
Sarah: "Well, Brother Johnson came on his motorcycle and I didn't get to ride his motorcycle. I was the only one who didn't ride the motorcycle. I REALLY want to ride it!"
Mom: "His motorcycle was on fire?!!!" Sarah: "No mom, (laughing), he called 911, and we had a whole 911 scene and we watched it all and we got to spray the Fireman hose and everything." Mom (feeling a little bit more releived) "So, Will had nothing to do with the fire. So, how did the fire start?" Sarah: "I don't know, the car was just sitting there in front of the house, and then it was just on fire. And mom, everyone else got to ride the motorcycle! Can we call Brother Johnson and see if I can ride the motorcycle too." Mom "Nope, I think one 911 call is enough for today.....
I hope my kids know how exciting and fun their childhood is even though they tell me every ten minutes that they are "bored". I think we have set up quite the fun atmosphere for them, despite what they think.
