Story: Usually if I have to shower I either bring Spencer with me and lock him in my room or I shower while he is sleeping. Our shower is having to be re-cocked and so I have to shower down stairs or in the kids bathroom. I chose downstairs. This morning I had to get ready early so I get in the shower and leave Spencer out of the bathroom. I didn't want him to unwind the toilet paper or flush the toilet a million times. Half way into my shower I think to myself. Ugh, I should have locked the front door, because as of a week ago Spencer can open the front door and go outside and he loves going out there. About 3 minutes later I hear a knock at the bathroom door. It was a grown up knock. Weird. So I say "HELLO?" and I here "Lesley" I turn off the water so I could hear better and ask "Who is there?" It was my friend April that lives a couple blocks away. She begins to tell me that she was taking her kids to preschool and saw Spencer outside, running down the street. AHHHHH!!! I was almost done so I hurry and rinse off and get out as fast as I can. She had to leave and had Carter lock the door behind her. I was so freaked out. I can't believe that happened and so so thankful that April happened to be there to bring him back. And that is why I will probably have to get one of these ridiculous Money Leashes.
Mother of the Year Award goes to me this year for sure!
