Today at 4:30 Calvin was trying to convince me to go on a jog with him in the stroller. Today at 4:30 it was 100 degrees outside. I tried to explain to him that it was WAY to hot to be outside. It wasn't working. I told him that playing outside in this heat could actually make you sick. I tried to explain dehydration to a 3 and 5 year old. It still wasn't working. So I told them if you played outside in this heat it would make you so sick you would throw up. They stopped asking.
About an hour later the Orkin man walked up the driveway. He wanted me to pay him money several times a year to kill our bugs. I politely told him I wasn't interested. Then I told him that they (meaning his employers) really shouldn't make him go door to door on a day like today. He was drenched in sweat. I said goodbye.
Then as I turned to walk back to the porch where the boys were waiting, here's what I heard....
Calvin (yelling): Go inside or your gonna throw up!
Brennan (yelling): You're gonna throw up on our driveway!
So maybe they do actually listen to me.
