Hello, China?

No, don?t get your panties in a bunch that soooo isn?t what you guys think. It is more of a story about the boy.

I?m sitting quietly at my desk trying to read some of your witty blogs and even throw you a comment here and there when I start hearing this electronic beeping sound. Strange. The boy is out in the living room watching Curious George. Maybe George is curious about computers. I go about my business. Beep-beep-beep I continue to hear. Out of the corner of my eye I notice that the light on the phone base is blinking. Funny… the phone isn?t ringing. I get up to see what the scoop is. My son is sitting quietly behind the big red chair in the window pushing the buttons on the phone.

“What are you doing?” I ask. The boy grins and says, “NA!” and hands me the phone. I look at it and the phone says hold. Somehow, the boy managed to dial something, push the hold button and continue dialing. It took me a good 2-3 minutes to figure out how to turn the hold off. Shows you how bright I am. Fortunately he didn?t really call China. I can just see it now. “Hello China, yeah I?d like to order me up a little sister.” Good lord.
