Funniest phone call ever!

7:30 a.m.: It's spring break. I don't have to get up to d.r.a.g. Angela out of bed, so when the phone rings at 7:30 in the morning it's quite irritating.

Me: (sounding very tired and probably a little irritated.) Hello?
Caller: (breathy voice) Hi mom.
Me: (grinning ear to ear) Hi Angela. Good morning.
Angela: Good morning mom. Today is Wednesday. We're going to play with Caleb, then go to see Dr. Mary.
Me: Right. What are you doing right now?
Angela: Um, I dunno.
Me: Remember you need to bring your laundry downstairs and make your bed.
Angela: Ok mom. Bye. Oh!...Mom!.... I love you!

So, who wants me to add their phone number to her contact list??? Disclaimer: You'll get calls at all hours of the day!

WTG, Angela! Get that mom out of bed. Geez - I'm up hours before you. No wonder you wonder why I'm online at 5:30!

I love getting cell phone calls from inside the house ... like the times my older son has called me because there's no toilet paper in the bathroom and he needs it -- now.

That cracks me up - how funny that she calls you like that! So cute - and so sweet (although calling at like 9:00 am might have been nice...)

Oh, I can't wait for Charlie to have a phone! That is so sweet!

Love it!! Although, if Adam had a phone I would be awaken by the police ringing our door bell :) because the first call he'd make is 911!!! Which is why our phone has to stay on top of the frig. :)

That is so funny! Why is it that on days we can sleep in, our kids decide to wake up early? I've never understood that!

And nope, don't put me on the call list. I'm not a nice person if my phone rings that early!
