things you should ALWAYS remember...

when leaving a sleepy 8 yo in the car... if you leave it running ( so they will be comfortable ) and tell them DO NOT get out of the car...

they will.... and lock all the doors behind them...

so Ethan locked us out of our running truck today at StarBucks... yes he did...

AND the super secret key I keep under the bumper for situation JUST LIKE THIS? well it was n't there...

why?> because I took it out two days ago to make extra copies and ... ehemm.. hadn't put it back.. and couple that with teh fact all the extra keys but ONE SET were in the truck...

DOH!


long story short... my love was on the way back from Edinburg and she had the extra key and while I had to wait a few HOURS, she finally came and rescued me....

remember... 8 YO boys will NOT DO AS they are told...

that is a public service announcement for today...

Heh... The same thing happened with my baby brother once when my mom came to pick me up at school. We were walking out and we ran into Brian - "I told you to stay in the car!" my mom said... "Don't worry" Brian replied "I locked the doors!"

I have visualized this story so many times it almost makes the world seem right that it actually happened to someone.

Reminds of when I loaned my truck to the neighbor and told him to return the key to the glove, meaning the oven mitt on the back porch where all the spare keys go that he has used a hundred times. What does he do? He thinks glove 'box', puts the key in and locks the door. And I never lock my truck. And I can't find the spare. Yep.

Leaving any child in a running auto un-attended is a bad idea IMO.
