My Little Peeping Tom

This afternoon, I sent my 5 year old three houses down to drop off an item to the neighbors for me. I always worry a little when he runs errands of this distance, but I console myself with the knowledge that we live on a quiet street, I know everyone between here and there, and he's a smart little boy who knows to avoid cars and stay on the grass.

After he returned triumphantly from his long trek, I asked him how it went. He responded,

"It took them a long time to answer the door. I had to knock about 13 times. Between the 11th and 12th time, though, someone came to the door. I was gonna look in the window to see if any moms were home, but when I tried there were some papers in the way."

Knocking a dozen times and peering through windows, huh? I'm beginning to think maybe I should worry more for the neighbors' sake and not so much for my son's...


  1. Hee, hee!! Nobody can say that boy doesn't do everything possible to get his task done...even as far as just shy of breaking and entering. I can just picture his blue eyes peering into the window...I'd take him peeping into my house any day. ;)

  2. That's hilarious, good thing they had paper on their windows, hunh? At least he's persistent and determined to get the job done.

  3. Oh me...that's funny! Wonder how many more knocks it would've taken before he just decided to go 'round back, for fear they simply could hear him from the front. Lol lol.

  4. Too funny! I can just see him getting to the bottom of why it was takling them so long to answer the door
