Several years ago, while married to my second husband, I received a call from my step-son’s school. At the time, he was living with his mother who had a major drinking problem. Consequently, she had no phone.
It seems that his teacher had sent several notes home to his mom explaining that she needed an emergency contact number, to no avail. Finally at her wits end, she called me to find out his home number. While on the phone, she mentioned that she had asked him “What do I do in case of an emergency?” His reply, “Call 911!” Out of the mouths of babes.
So, I’m curious, what awesome and funny zingers have your kids come up with lately?
