Locked in a closet

That's where my nephew Matt thinks he'll be spending a week in March. How did he arrive at such a thought you ask? Sunday night my Mom called and asked me to go online and find some flight prices for my sister and BIL to Florida. When I called to give them to her Matt answered the phone. He said that he'd heard that Dave and I were coming to stay at their house while his parents were in Florida. I said yes, and and that he had better behave himself and get all his homework done quickly for me. He tried to be a tough guy and I told him that I had a little story to tell him.

I told him that when Jamie was little, Dave and I went to Florida and left Jamie with his (Matt's) parents. At some point during the week my BIL locked him in a closet. Jamie still jokes about that story. So I told Matt that paybacks were a bitch and that he'd better be on his best behavior.

So while I'm giving my sister prices Matt comes running upstairs and I can hear him asking his Mom, "Will she really lock me in a closet?" *snicker*

I am pretty sure that I won't be locking anyone in a closet but I will keep that option open strictly for scare tactics. Should be a fun week. Best part? I will be able to sleep in and only a 10 minute ride to work!

That's a good auntie! Always, always have a threat to fall back on!

Once, DH locked my nephew in the trunk of our car when he was misbehaving. He was only in there for about a minute and DH stood right there. He made his point!

He'll be 15 in April, but he's a very young 14. Matt, and his sister Sara, are my favorites. I know I'm not supposed to have favorites but I do.

He calls to chit chat all the time. Sometimes I am busy and have to get off the phone so I say, "I love you Matt." That's a surefire way to get him to hang up. I can almost see him blushing through the phone. *grin*

I'm pretty sure that, as a Mom, I don't want to know what you're gonna do to my son in a closet for two minutes. *grin*

But what I don't know won't hurt me so have fun. I know he'd be happy and what more can a mom ask for.

*ignores the closet orgy*

Being 10 minutes from work sounds lovely. I hope any hovering ice storms decide to get it on while you are so conveniently close.

Okay, just a few more minutes and I'll be ready for the closet again lights. I love the black light and beads you have in there, BTW.

What's the big swinging chair for? The one suspended from the ceiling???
