901

Make sure you don't have Carter around to dial for help if you need it. Today he was playing around with the phone and I said, "Hey, don't do that. What if you accidentally called the police? You can only call them if you have an emergency." So he said, "Oh, call them like this?" And he proceeded to dial 9-0-1. Thank goodness he was wrong, but now I don't know whether to teach him the real number since I know he'll go ahead and dial it. The little stinker.

That is a question to ponder. I wish you luck with that one. Long story but I passed out and when I came to the kids handed me the phone so I could call 911. Thanks for thinking of me, kids. Good thing I was not dead!!

Ok-- I'm laughing -- at your story and the Queen's comment. Motherhood is many things, but NEVER boring!♥

Reed keeps asking what our phone number is and wanting to dial things. I'm guess 911 is coming~

That little stinker. Anna keeps thinking it's 991, but I correct her.

Cousin It was hilarious. So glad you got pictures. Also glad your mom saved the day!

lol....Hellllloooooooo!!! My nails are painted, dinner is cooked, Mark is home (early again...hooray), and I'm starting this process of catching up! It should be soooo nice. I'm giving myself some time. I'll answer one at a time until I'm all done.

I hope I remember how to dial 9-1-1 when I'm freaked out. Maybe I'll dial 9-0-1 too, then Carter and I can be 9-0-1 buds.

HA! that is NOt so great....but it might have been a good lesson if he had dialed 911---then the dispatcher could have talked to him about the importance of not dialing 911....nothin' like someone else scaring your kids to get them to realize what a serious no-no is. :)

Little tip I used ~ If you really DO want themy to know HOW to dial 911. Paint one stripe of colored nail polish on the #9 and two stripes on the #1. It's a quick easy reminder for them. But then again they may just call for help, when you're being "mean". LOL Elena!

Is it an old wive's tale that when you dial a bunch of random numbers it automatically dials 911? I have heard that before, so now I wonder how many times we have called in a non-emergency by playing with the phone! Why is it such a fun toy?

Katie - or maybe it was Madalyn - had a realistic sounding phone. You could record a message so that if she dialed the right number you would talk to her. Got them to learn their phone number...and other numbers...
