She's so lucky...

I didn't give it to her good. Kiersten had a near brush with death yesterday. The kids' wanted me to set up the tent outside, but is not a job I can manage when they are playing around me while I do it. I say playing around me, but you all know I mean messing with the tent as I am working on it. :) Anyhow, I came back inside to find a bouquet of flowers by the front door- inside. I knew immediately that Kiersten had heard the doorbell and, while I was outside, opened it herself and received the delivery. All three kids' were right there in the living room and could have been taken or hurt or...... the imagination and reality of all that could have happened left me speechless. I didn't know what to do to punish her. I have since put a child proof door handle thing on and she is no longer able to get the mail for me. Needless to say the flowers didn't brighten my day as they were intended to!

Oh, I would have been all nerves too. I unfortunately have two children with no apparent sense of "stranger danger" either. Hope you are hanging in there! I miss seeing you (we haven't gotten to the park in the last couple weeks)!

Oh, how I would have freaked out as well. My children don't understand stranger danger too well either especially if it is someone at the door. I am not sure how I would punish them either, but I do keep the screen door latched as often as possible to keep the little people in. They have yet to figure out where the lock is so we are still safe there. Hopefully I will see you this week. I am glad to be home as it was roasting in Texas. Later sweet friend!
