Super Mom To The Rescue
Wow we had an exciting night here in my part of the world. Everything was going fine last night, Tooters was in bed sleeping and I was having some mommy time watching Biggest Loser while I exercised. You know for some reason when I watch that show I always have the extra huge urge to amp up my exercises, I just don’t know why lol. At the end of the episode I sat my sweaty self down to cool off and enjoy another bottle of Master Cleanse, yummy its tonsil burning good ;-p.
Just as I was cooling off and thinking of the warm new flannel sheets I had just put on my bed the silence was shattered by a gazillion sirens. OMG it sounded like the world was coming to an end they just would not stop. Just when I thought I could go to bed another round would race up the road. Curiosity finally got the best of me and I just had to go and take a look. So across the street I went in my tinker bell pajama pants, purple fuzzy slippers, and a cozy fluffy green bathrobe. Boy if I was going to attract a man this was not the night.
I finally found out through my contacts working the area it was a fire in the creek bottom and the sheriff’s officer told me to go pack stuff I want to take with me incase I needed to evacuate at a moments notice. I mean the fire was blazing and the wind was gusting up to 50 mph right towards my house. The fire was only about a block away. I got back to the house and did what I had to do then sat down to wait.
But wouldn’t you know it the sirens would not stop. Now they were racing up and down the road like they were drag racing. Of course this woke up Tooters. She is not freaked out by emergency stuff because my mom works for the Sheriff’s office and I work for emergency fire and the forest fires. Once she caught site of the fire up the road that did worry her a little bit. So I called my mom and told her to go for a ride with me because there was a several hundred-acre fire going on on the other side of town. I thought if I could show Tooters how far I had to drive to get to the fire it would make her feel better. Plus I figured the car ride would either calm Tooters down to be away from the fire by our house or put her back to sleep.
Well I ended up taking her back to my mom’s house for the night because I got called into work and I had to race over to a friend’s house to help her pack because she might be evacuated too.
Just as I was dropping Tooters and my mom off Tooters got very serious and made me promise to do something for her. All she wanted me to do was go back to my house for a couple of things for her. She wanted her new Barbie with the dogs, the Barbie her uncle bought for her, and her favorite doll she has been carrying around since Christmas. The darn thing is named Sarabell Lavinia Chandelier —–. What a mouth full for a six year old.
I asked her if she was worried about the Wonder Pup and she said, “You are a good mommy you would not let anything bad happen to her, I trust you will get her out too!”
I thought it was so cute that she picked those items that had been bought for her by very special people to save first.
My mom snuck into another room from Tooters and called me this morning at dispatch to let me know that Tooters talked about those things all night in her sleep. What she did not know is when I ran to the house to get her school clothes for today I snuck those items into her bag just so Tooters knows I really do listen to her. Then my cell phone rang and it was Tooters telling me how much she loved me because I saved her babies. Needless to say today I am on cloud nine knowing that my daughter thinks I am the hero of the Barbie’s and babies. Just think I don’t even need to fly I just needed my Kia with the spare tire on it instead of a cape lol.
