Why does your bedroom door get yanked off it's hinges at midnight?
A. Because you are remodeling and want to replace it.
B. Because you are painting a room or refinishing the door.
C. Because you are stuck in the room with 5 kids and and you can't get out.
D. I had too much sugar and flew into a rage!
If you picked C you would be right! Daddy and the boys were gone overnight and so of course that leaves 5 little girls who want to bunk up with mama. At times our old farmhouse has its moments where things stop working. A few days ago the door locked up and we couldn't shut it all the way for fear we couldn't open it. So daddy said DO NOT shut this door all the way because you won't get open. I'll fix it this weekend. When I heard that I KNEW without doubt we wouldn't make it to the weekend. I mean I have kids, it's gonna happen. It only takes one child not being watched to pull it off and sure enough whilst they were ALL in my room making their beds on the floor we heard a loud slam. I turned around in shock only to have the innocent guilty child tell me, "What, I had to slam it because it wouldn't shut." We were officially stuck and several children whining to use the bathroom. The window is not an option being on the 2nd floor so I searched my room for something to pry the door off it's hinges. Hinges by the way that I'm sure haven't been moved in 100 years. But after lots of pounding and pulling I was able to yank it from it's 'claws' and it and I came crashing to the floor. Nothing like a midnight adventure!!
