ADVENTURES WITH ADAM
Another Adam adventure! For a few weeks I have been a little worried about Adam climbing out of his window, because he has been opening it a lot and talking to his friends. So I mentioned it to my neighbor Annalisa, and we talked about it for a bit and laughed...ha ha ha. Well HE DID IT!!! Adam Broke out his screen, and was throwing toy's out the window to Collin (Annalisa's son) . Well one of the toys got stuck, Adam came to let me know and I told him that dad would get it down with the ladder, when he got home from work. Adam said ok and went on. Well about 10 min. later Adam and Collin came running to me so so excited...
Adam said, "Mom I got my TOY!"
"Adam how did you get your toy back?" I replied
"I don't know mom i just got it" He lied.
So I asked Collin, " Collin did Adam got on the roof to get is toy?"
"um um Adam what should I say?" Collin asked Adam.
Again I asked, "Adam did you go on the roof to get your toy??"
"I just got it some how mom..."
So I asked Collin again, "Collin did Adam go on the roof?"
"um um yes" he replied.
well now Adam is busted! All I could do was walk away. I did not know what to do. I was so mad I had to leave. Then Adam and Collin went to school shortly after this happened. I went to Home Depot and invested in a window Lock!!!I put it on Adams window and when he got home from school I asked him to try and get out of his window. (I wanted to make sure he could not get out).
HE was able to open it, but only about 4 inches. Adam turned to me and said, "mom get this thing off!! Who put it on? Get it off!!" (the lock) " Mom, help me get this off!"
I said, "No Adam. I put that there so that you can't get onto the roof. You could fall and get hurt. It is very dangerous!"
"No it's not mom. I can do it. I went last time and I was fine" He said confidently.
"Sorry Adam, it's not coming off!"
And then he freaked! "MOM TAKE IT OFF!!!!!! I cant even put my head through the window mom!!!!!! MOM YOU SAID I CAN PLAY ON THE ROOF, TAKE IT OFF!!!' ( now he thinks I said go play on the roof because i asked him to try and open his window). And then he just started CRYING because he can no longer go play on the roof... I just had to walk away again....
