But There Weren't Sirens

This past weekend was filled with lovely family time, only occasionally interrupted by crabby screams. Mercifully, there is always a cure for the little monster's tired phase. Any electronics will do in a pinch, but a cell phone is his toy of choice these days. During one particularly crabby episode, we handed it over... and quickly learned exactly why we won't be making that mistake again.

Jonathan: Wow, Nathaniel is really having fun with my phone.

Me: Totally Dad of the Year material.

[Loud beeping noise]

Jonathan: That's weird. I just got a voicemail. Nathaniel, who did you call?

Voicemail: This is the St. Paul Police Department. If you are having an emergency, please hang up and dial 9-1-1.

Needless to say, our cell phones are now off-limits as child toys.
