Those of you who've read here before about the antics of my exuberant toddler, may be amused to learn of one of his more recent escapades.
We were in Calgary recently, and made the journey south to the town of Okotoks to have an elegant French dinner at a restaurant my recently deceased father really enjoyed. It was a great slow-food feast. But, as all parents know and the other restaurant patrons soon found out, the words "slow" and "food" don't go all that well together when there are toddlers in the mix.
In a desperate effort to keep Alister a little busy, Derek let him play with his Blackberry. Alister hit the emergency button and dialed 9-1-1, prompting two return phone calls from the RCMP.
It reminded me of a story about one of my brother's friends, who was a legendary trouble-maker in his toddler days. Over his mother's shoulder at the Victoria International Airport, this boy once reached out and pulled the fire alarm, causing planes to circle overhead until the "emergency" was resolved.
