9-1-1 What's Your Emergency??
So I usually run on the mornings when our babysitter comes over. Today I went running with my neighbor and her sweet kids came over to play and sit with Maria while we ran. When I got home, Gavin told me that he called 9-1-1 while I was gone and Maria informed me that they left a message on the answering machine. To make a long story short I called them back and spoke to the lady who informed me that Gavin called 8 times in ten minutes. I was NOT HAPPY and the 9-1-1 center wasn't happy either. Gavin and I marched straight up to his room and had a little chat. Our neighbor had told him to call and she was very apologetic as she thought it was a play phone, but Gavin knew better. So after Gavin got a swat and some time in his room he came down and just as he was leaving with Maria- the Sheriffs department showed up. Gavin started crying. He told me later that he thought the police were going to take him to Jail. It was a hard call as I was disciplining him. I wanted him to know it wasn't right but at the same time didn't want to scare him to where he wouldn't call in the event of an emergency. Anyway, I guess we know the little stinker is capable of calling if he needs too. But I can almost guarantee he won't be dialing that number again during play time.
