Murphy's Law strikes.

Murphy's law strikes again! 
I have no idea how this happened, but I was locked out the car by my lovely 2 yr old.
Yes, my TWO year old. 
 After doing a little retail therapy to cheer up my already  dampened day, I went to pick up the boys. Like most mothers, I had a long day and couldn't wait to see my babies. I leave my car running so the car would be nice and toasty for the boys when they got in. Just in case I got locked out I took my remote off the keys and took them inside with me. I gather the boys and walk outside. Anxious to get home, I hurriedly throw Kaleb in the car and run around to the other side to throw Darryl in his seat. "Yes, a nap!" my thoughts as I strap Monkey into his seat. Subconsciously, I placed the remote in his seat and shut the door. As I go to open the front door Monkey presses the lock button and locked the car doors. In a state of panic I run to the sitters door to ask if she knew how to open the door. She was no help (Love her dearly though) on that part. I start to try to coach Monkey to press the lock button.
[FYI: he knows how to take his self out of his seat, roll the windows down AND open the door]
He presses EVERY button except the unlock.
Sitter gets this great idea to call a locksmith.
I wait still trying to coach Monkey into pressing unlock. 
Then, I hear sirens get closer and closer.
A fire truck pulls up and out jumps three fire fighters as if the car was on fire.
They approach the scene with serious faces. 
After they accessed the situation, up comes two police cars. 
They on the other hand were already tickled pink with what was going on. 
The police officer walks up to the window to see if he can coach monkey into unlocking the car and Monkey just looks and laughs at the man.
10-15 min later pop a lock [the lifesaver] comes and gets the car open. 
Luckily, they don't charge for emergency situations! 

I'm sure I was the laughing stock of the Newport News fire and police departments.

I was a little upset and annoyed today but of course my babies always make me forget what I was angry for 
They are just so freaking adorable! 


  1. oh no! what a story to tell the husband later - this stuff *only* happens when they're gone! so glad that everything turned out fine for you guys. such sweet little sleepers! no wonder you can't stay mad. :)

  2. oh my goodness girl! I had the EXACT same thing happen to me with my oldest in the Walmart parking lot a couple of months ago! The cop was way understand though...and strangly prepared, he had the little window unlocky tool they used, and we didn't have to call a locksmith. I agree though...totally Murphy's law! If it's going to happen, it'll happen when he's deployed!! :)

  3. That is so funny!!! :) glad I found your blog :)
