Parkerisms...

Parker: I need to count the smoke detectors and see how many we have in our house. There should be one in my bedroom.
counting...
Parker: Oh. Here's one outside my room. Good. I will be able to hear it!
Parker: Mom. Did you know I can call 9-1-1!
he makes a sign that says 9-1-1 and uses a hole punch to make little holes all around the edge... a few minutes later...
Parker: I can call 9-1-1.
i start to get a little worried... i see where this is going...
Me: Parker. You know that you can't call 9-1-1 unless there is a REAL EMERGENCY, right?
Parker: Ohhh... Uhhh...
a few minutes later...
Parker: No mom. I can call them ANYTIME just to talk.
Me: Parker! You can NOT call them EVER unless there is an emergency that dad or I can not help you with. Do you understand? They would get mad if you did.
now he is making a firefighter mask that goes over his mouth with tape and paper...
Parker: Can we just not talk about it anymore mom!

Aren't you glad he didn't call "just to talk" and find out if you do that a real policeman might come to your house to have another little chat?!
