The Terrible Two's Arrival Time...Early

As you might have guessed by the post title, Alexandra is most definately giving us a run for our money. Today, she unrolled a roll of toilet paper, decided to open the cloth diaper pail (the wet one) AND, call 911! Yes my darling little angel called 911! I had left the phone in the backyard so I could go and get the soil (for planting Tiny Tim Tomatoes) and I come back and she is talking into the phone. At that point I don't really think anythign of it cuz she ALWAYS talks into the phone, even when no one is there. But then I heard voices so I take the phone and start talking. The (nice) lady on the other end says:
Operator : "This is the city police"
Me: "I'm SO SORRY!!!"
Operator :"Did she get a new bike? I couldn't really understand what she was saying. I'm glad she stayed on the line though, it means I don't have to send a police cruiser."
Me: "She has a new brother, she's not two yet" (that was my feeble excuse for why she called)
Operator: "She speaks pretty well than. So no one's in distress? You don't need the ambulance or firetrucks?"
Me: "No, we're o.k. I'm really sorry"
Operator: "Thanks for staying on the line, hopefully she doesn't remember how to call"

NO KIDDING!!!!!!! I can only imagine if she had hung up and police crusiers showed up at my house!!!!!!!!!
Anyway, I should go check on little children, they are being FAR to quiet. I do have an Anthony story to tell but it will have to wait until another day. :)

Never a dull moment at your house. I bet Anthony would have loved it had the firetrucks arrived!
