Well I think it's funny anyway.
This post could also be titled, "How to shut up a nosy old neighbor."
Yesterday afternoon the kids were getting a little restless. We didn't have time for a park outing, so I let them out into the common hallway to ride their scoot-toys for a few minutes. Which of course led to them taking a little joyride on the elevator. But since it was the middle of the day, I hoped most of our neighbors in the condo complex were gone so we wouldn't get it trouble. We tend to get in trouble a lot. By the same grumpy old neighbor.
Unfortunately, this mean grumpy old man was home, and came knocking at our door just minutes after I got the kids inside. I ignored the knocking. He kept knocking. I whispered to the kids to be quiet. But he knew we were home. And kept knocking.
So I thought.... what will make him go away and stop bugging us....
And a brilliant plan came to me.
I scooped up the babies and went into the back bedroom. Then I yelled, "Brianna, come here! I need you to help me!" I asked her to go to the door and give the neighbor a message.
She ran to the door and did exactly as I asked: "Hi. My mommy can't come to the door. She's breast feeding the babies."
And it worked! He went away without saying a word! Hopefully feeling awkward and uncomfortable enough that he won't harass us anymore!
