On a different subject. I was talking to my son about 911 tonight and we were having this really grown up conversation about when to call 911. Well, I thought it was really quite grown up, until he suggested he'd use their service for this: "You know when like, at Christmas time, when you just get a brand new toy and then you either lose it or it breaks? I'd call 911 for that cuz that's an emergency... you know... like wellllll, for a kid it's an emergency" as he shoots me this really comically thoughtful grin.
Bless his little thought process. I guess I'll have to keep the phone away from him until I can drill the list of acceptable emergencies into his brain... if there's near death, excessive blood, guns going off, robbery, fire, etc. Toys don't really count. Oh to be young and innocent again, even if just for a day.
Brings a song to mind. Sean Kingston's "Fire Burning". It was the first song that really made me wonder what the hell a "Shawty" was and whether I was one or not. LOL Ya. I feel old.
