My sister’s twin boys are always getting into mischief, and trouble. My kids of course love hearing about the latest adventures/episodes. Around here we call them, "the boys" and the stories will probably keep coming for some time.
I called my sister yesterday, just checking on her. I’m getting ready to burn a CD for her of, kids songs, silly songs, campfire songs etc. She said she and the kids were cleaning out the ‘boy’s’ bedroom (boys=her twin boys age 7 now). We were on the phone about 10 minutes when I hear a terrified little voice scream, "MOM, BIG FIRE!" My sister says, "Fire?" and the phone goes dead.
Knowing the trouble that her twins get into, I knew the boys had started a fire, but didn’t know anything else. I waited and waited, no phone call, so I figure it must be serious. I called her back, and sure enough she says, "The fire department is here I’ll call you later."
Well at least things were under control. lol
The oldest twin had gotten up above the stove where the matches are, took them outside and lit them. The youngest twin was the one that came running to tell "Mom." Good thing he did. They live out in the country, and the dry weeds were burning fast. The fire dept. said if the wind had been blowing, either their house or a neighbor’s house would have caught on fire. As it was approx a half acre of dry weeds burned. Lucky boys.
One of the firefighters was a lady who asked my sister how she was doing, (which wasn’t all that great), she told my sister, don’t worry, I was a pyro as a kid, they’ll grow up to be firefighters! LOL
She then offered to have an officer come out and ‘talk’ to the boys, put a little fear into them. From what my sis says, that should be happening this morning. LOL
Makes me thankful my kids are older, and that sis has good fire insurance! Have fun today. BIG HUGS, Steph
