Do they make cages for children? Will I get in trouble if I make one and use it? Hmmmm?
My grandson is here 5 days a week, day and night. I love him dearly but the boy is going to drive me to an early grave, or at the very least, a mental institution.
I got out of the shower today to find my front door open (so he knows how to unlock both the dead bolt and the door lock) I’m wrapped in a towel, and trying to stay behind the door as much as possible, I’m calling his name.
My neighbor, who drives truck, long haul, and who I never see… pulls up and notices me. He asked if everything was OK? I told him Dekeon had gotten out and I couldn’t see him. He offered to look for him while I got dressed.
Same day, but later that afternoon, Dek opens the door to let one of the cats out and he takes off too. I did have clothes on, and ran after him. He changes direction and runs into the house… and locks me out.
Good thing I had left the back door unlocked.
He tries to get out at night, saying he WANTS the boogie man to get him.
He has no fear, but scares the crap outta me with his antics.
He reminds me of my brothers, and my sister says he’s just like her twins (heaven help us all).
I WAS going to say, that my boys never did things like that, but, then, a memory pops into my head… We lived in Eastern Idaho, out in the country. There was a big canal that ran in front of our house.
I got out of the shower, dressed and went outside to check on the kids, only to find that my neighbors and people I didn’t know were busy fighting a fire on the other side of the canal so it wouldn’t jump over to our front yard.
My younger son and his friend had been playing with firecrackers. The firecrackers started the grasses on fire and instead of pouring water on the fire, they added lighter fluid… not too smart eh?
So, I guess I can’t say my kids never did things that scared me/drove me crazy/made me want to kill them…
I’m thinking… "Kiddy Cage" or "Kiddy Run" (think dog run for kids) or, hooking him up to one of those exercise machines that they put horses on that walk them around and around in circles… but, I’ll resize it and label it as the newest cure for obese, or ADD children… I think I’ll make a fortune! lol Well, maybe not…
As it goes now, he’s going to be doing "time out" till he’s 40! BIG HUGS, Steph
