Neely over at Chronicles of Neely.....tried putting together a blog meet for some of the girls that live in the North Dallas side....(anyone really) ...only 4 us could make it.....Taylor, Kelsey, and me....and of course Neely
Now I hadn't planned on bringing kids....(yes aly I know it was a grown up meeting) but first I was going to have to ...then hubs said he's be able to watch her....then Tay said she was bringing Lil Miss...so I decided to bring Lily for her....SHE DIDN'T END UP BRINGING LIL MISS...(yes I still want to spank you tk)
Luckily I brought Mini Me hoping that she would contain Lily long enough for me to visit. Lily was good ohhhhh for the first 10 mins while she ate her yogurt. Then her burst of energy kicked in. Which didn't make for a good visit. I think I caught about half the conversations and looked like a nut in the process...I hope the girls don't hold it against me on first impression.......but the story gets better!
I said I'll be right back....I took Kate (who is almost 10) and Lily to the car (which was parked right out the windows) DID I MENTION IT WAS POURING RAIN???!
Turned the engine on...strapped Lily in..turned on Wonder Pets for Lily to watch....locked the doors and told Kate I would be back in 2 shakes...after we took our picture together and I got my purse. And that is exactly what we did.
We found some poor dude to take our picture....gathered our stuff (keeping in mind I'm in view of my car) and we go outside and stand under the awning in the rain saying goodbye....
That's when I notice a cop car pull up behind my car. I wave to the cop and head over there...He gets out and starts looking in my back window. I ask him what the problem is....He said he got a disturbance call that kids were left in a car.
OK WHAT??????????????????????? WHO COULD HAVE CALLED? I WASN'T REALLY GONE AND I WAS STANDING RIGHT THERE? HELLO KATE IS 4TH GRADE AND 10 FOR PETE'S SAKE.
I told the officer I understood he was only doing his job, but the engine was running (it was in the 50's w/pouring rain outside) that I ran in to say goodbye to my friends and didn't want the kids standing in the rain. In fact I told him he saw me standing there on the porch.
He said that b/c Kate was old enough and the temps outside were cool that it was ok...but not to do it again.
Ok first...I'm a great mom! One thing I take pride in is caring for my kids and there isn't anything I wouldn't do to make sure they are safe at all times.....so to the person who called the cops on me and then watched me standing there....
SHAME ON YOU!
how dare you! I get that if I was reckless and left them and went to the movies, but come on! I was standing there saying goodbye to ppl. Shame that you have nothing better to do w/ur time.
(ok I'm finished now)
I'd like a do over w/the girls so I can sit and visit....when's the next one?
As for the rest of the weekend? It was quick and hot after that!
Yesterday I baked....
Bacon, Egg, and Toast Cups
