Door Dilema

Here in Hilton Head, our condo is on the third floor. Although the door has locks, they are not out of the boys' reach and with the lever handles, they discovered on arrival that they can get out.

Last night I spelled out very clearly, the rules that no one may touch the doors to the outside without an adult's permission. This morning I awoke to the sounds of the door opening and went out into the hall to discover them at the elevator with the button pushed, patiently awaiting its arrival.

After some serious discipline, I once again explained the rules about the door. As my dad left to go to the grocery store, there was Aiden with his hand on the door to follow him.

"Aiden! Don't you remember what I just said?" I said in a loud and serious voice.

"But mama, I didn't go out," he insisted.

"The rule is you may not even touch the handle without asking me first."

"But mama," he said without batting an eye, "you just gonna say no!"

Smart boy indeed. I bet you had to hold back a laugh on that one.

Unfortunately, I was unable to hold back the laughter :).
