The policeman caught me!

Today Ethan was playing with a book that my parents gave him for Christmas. It's all about emergency vehicles, and makes the siren noise when you push a button. Leave it to grandparents to buy even books that make noise!!

So he comes up to me and says that now he is a police officer. I grinned. "Mommy, you run and I'll chase you and get you." So off I ran. He quickly caught me and tackled me down. We've never played "police man" before, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Then he took out his little orange notepad and gave me a "ticket." He smiled really big and said, "now we can go to the movies with our tickets, Mommy!!"

Hahahaha!! I just rolled laughing.

Absolutely hilarious!!! How come my kids aren't that funny? (Don't you dare tell them I said that, LOL) Maybe it's because they have a mad mama all the time! ;0) (meaning me...not you!)

LOL! That is sooo cute and so funny! Not sure if you knew but my hubby is a state trooper so we have all kinds of real cop stuff around... a boy child's dream come true! When our oldest, Madison, was around 3 she would watch COPS with her daddy (when he liked the show.. before he was so burned out on real cop work lol) and she swore that all her daddy did at work was draw his gun and yell "get out of the car!" at ppl. lol Our middle son Carter (who's 3 now) asks his daddy, "Do you chase the cars and go fast?" lol which his daddy proudly responds, "Yes! That's what I do!"

Well, I'd probably have 5 kids, if I had the money and health. Six might be pushing it for me! :-)

And, Brandi, I can't see your profile. Thought you just had a cafemom...do you do blogspot, too?

Mandy, yep, I had read about your hubby being a trooper. My kids just LOVE "emergency helpers!" Their papa is a fireman, so they regularly go up to see the ambulances and firetrucks. We also go to "touch-a-truck", so they can get in the cop cars. :-)
