charlie the hero!


today my sister and i had a mother of the year moment. we took the babies to kohls and after we were done she was loading the stroller into the trunk and the bambinos were in the car and somehow the car got locked with the 2 of them inside. (im pretty sure charlotte stepped on the keys in the front seat and hit the lock button!!) so we're both standing outside the car pointing at the unlock button telling charlotte to push it. after pushing every other button and then the lock button TWICE we were starting to get a little worried. so i told charlie to grab the keys and push the unlock button on there. then she tries putting the keys in the ignition! so then i start to panick! i showed her my keys and said "push the button charlie like on mommys keys" so then she pushes the panic button and the alarm goes off! now im feeling like everyone in the parking lot is looking at us and now know we've locked our kids in the car! finally she pushes the unlock button and i yank the door open before she can hit the lock button again. then justyn opens the back door and noah is leaning against the door and just about falls out and face plants! of course these two thought it was the funnest game and weren't concerned for even a second! these kids are tight as can be and i have a feeling they are going to put more than a few gray hairs on our heads by the time their all grown up!

ps. i think the funniest part of the whole thing was us pointing at the unlock button and charlotte pointing at every button EXCEPT that one and looking at me saying "this one?"... "no charlie" next button, "this one?"... "no charlie."... next button " this one?"...."NO charlie!".....

Oh my goodness how cute is that. I saw the title and was just to curious I had to come see what heroic act was performed. That is to funny. I love how innocent kids are and even in the most dier moments life is good and the kids are completely oblivious that there's anything wrong. I wish I could be a kid again. Life was so simple and uncomplicated.

Anywho... I wanted to stop by and say that I miss you and think of you often. Your family is so cute. I can't believe how big your girls are getting.

Well, I love you! Talk with you later.
