When my twin sister Wind and I were about four, we had a Barbie jeep. It was the first and last time Wind let me drive. Well, I got in and took off full speed toward the pool. My mother was on the porch and thought I would stop. Well, she was wrong. I was soon speeding toward the pool and she was yelling, "Let off the gas! Let off the gas!"
I was sitting on the couch with my sister Melissa and older brother TJ, eating some leftovers. My other older sister Olivia came in and asked for some. I said alright and gave her the bowl. She ran off with it and slammed the door to her room behind her. After a little while, we realized that she had jammed the door and couldn't get out for hours.
This is about my brother. He was playing baseball with my neighbors and his friends. All of a sudden, someone threw the ball at him. He turned his head sideways then the ball hit him. He fell and had to go to the emergency room. His ear was bleeding really bad, but guess what? My parents wouldn't even let him miss a day of school so he had to go! ~Kat
As an adult, I thought I was done with the "crazy mom" stories. No such luck! I got stuck at work one afternoon & can't use my cell while I'm on the clock. My mom showed up, screaming from across the store. I hear over the headsets used to communicate, four drive-thru customers, "Who is that crazy lady screaming over there?" & "That's Alli's mom, you'll get used to her."
I was running late for school one day and forgot to grab my keys by the door. I didn't realize it 'til the end of school. I had to climb through the bathroom window that was right above the tub. I slipped and somehow broke the faucet in the tub. The police were called by my neighbors because my dog was barking like crazy and wouldn't stop. Worst day ever!
So, my parents are doctors and when my triplet sisters and I were little, we got stuck waiting in the hospital. We got hungry and went to the vending machine to make popcorn and got confused with the microwave times. Before we knew it, there was smoke coming from the microwave and all the alarms were going off. In a hospital. Three fire trucks had to come!
I lost my first tooth and my mom gave me $20. That night Lizy (my 28 year old babysitter) stole my money. I was convinced that a robber stole it, but our phone did not work so I told our neighbors. The police came and arrested my babysitter, leaving me alone for 4 hours.
