Urgent, urgent! Emergency!

This morning I was attempting to enjoy ten minutes of alone time in the shower. Then I hear Reid. Mo------------------m! I ignore. Then banging at the door (which I absolutely keep locked). Mom! Mom! Mom! Mom! Mom!

WHAT Reid!?! Reid came back with something incomprehensible...mostly because he's a mumbler and I had the shower running. I resume ignoring.

Bam! Bam! Bam! on the door. MOM! MOM!

REID! I'll talk to you about it when I get out!

The second the shower is off I hear Mo-------------m! again from the living room, followed by the off-balanced pitter-patter of Reid running down the hall.

Bam! Bam! Bam! Mom! Mom! Mom! Mom! Mom!

Reid! Just wait 'til I'm dressed. (That two minute wait was filled with plenty more yelling, whining and banging on the door.)

I'm finally out. OK Reid, what is SO important?

For my next birthday, I want more Ben Ten aliens.


Urgent News. His birthday is 11 months and 27 days away.

haha!! That is funny. Makes you glad you didn't rush out of the bathroom, right? :) What an awesome picture of him right below too. SO cute.

This is a great story. Good idea on keeping the door locked. I dont know why I've never thought to do that. Usually within 2 minutes of showering my girls are in there with me. So disturbing.

That is too funny. William used to run in crying because I missed a phone call. It took about 10+ times of explaining that that's why we have an answering machine before he didn't freak out anymore!

thats hilarious! I would have jumped out of the shower to make sure there wasnt a true emergency. but I guess we all know our kids well enough not to take some things seriously.

You had me worried for you. glad it was just annoying kid wants. I always say "I want a trip to Hawaii" when my kids do that. Austin actually complained to Paul to take me to Hawaii!

Jenn said...

Soooo funny! (And lucky too! The last time I ignored urgent calls I found raw egg finger painted on my kitchen walls.)

Genn said...

That is too funny! I was hoping it was nothing urgent and getting a bit nervous, and I'm glad it was just a good laugh! I'm sure it wasn't funny when your nice hot shower was cut short. Kids.
