So Mama has asked us to write about some of our “brat pack” shenanigans as I am sometimes….I will stress…SOMETIMES….the instigator for them (hehe sorry Papa) I thought I would share some stories 🙂 I will preface this that I DO call Bree Mama and SJ Papa….that is who they are to me; and Nik and Isabella are my sisters….Nik, Isa and I tend to umm get into unforseen situations…so here goes:
On our most recent trip to celebrate the Hayse family Christmas, we found out new implements had been bought (see Papa’s recent post with pictures of said monstrosities)…the one we shall address is the “dana paddle” as we call it or, if you prefer, holyhellmotherofallevil paddle….both work 🙂
To say the dana paddle is a furniture climbing implement is an understatement….What is a furniture climbing implement you ask?…Well, it’s one that is SO evil, it WILL make you climb and leap furniture to get away…Unfortunately Papa WILL catch you, and considering he can pick us up with one hand…eh…climbing doesn’t always work.
So that night, after we’d had our introduction to the evil dana…Nik, Isa and I had a slumber party in the family room….Giggling and talking away like we always do…when all of a sudden Nik says:
Nik: *whispers…loudly* did Daddy leave the dana on the couch?!
Me and Isa: *sit straight up…whisper even louder* where??!
Nik: *pointing fearfully at the end of the couch* um…there
Isa: No way!
Me: think he’d notice burnt rubber in the fireplace?
*all 3 of us giggle loudly*
Me: *after the laughing fit* no…seriously…
Isa: Piper no.
Nik: Piper NO!!
Me: ohhh I’m doing it….ok maybe I won’t burn…but I’m hiding it…
Isa: Piper, hell no!
Nik: Piper.. think for a second…
Me: Too late to go back now!! *as im holding the dreaded dana…looking around for a hiding spot*
Me: Ok if we kinda push it off where papa left it anyway, AND he happens to look for it…he’ll think it fell and jeeze. ..HE’S the one that left it out…he KNOWS we hate this thing. …it’s like required by law we hide it!!! (Nik here, that was totally my idea, Piper was gonna just throw it behind the sofa).
Nik: wha wha?
Me: *proceed to push it…hard….behind the couch*…serves it right!
All three of us start giggling/laughing/snorting maniacally when all of a sudden we hear their bedroom door open and footsteps….all three of us freeze like deer in the headlights then scramble to get back in bed, while grabbing our phones to pretend we’re doing something. ..and here comes Papa….and all we could think? …we’re dead…he knows we hid it…I’m blaming Isabella…lol So as we all pretend…badly…since I think I had my phone upside down… to be doing something…we hear Papa say:
Papa: Since you girls are so wide awake and laughing this loud…It made me realize I forgot bedtime spankings.
Instead of the usual groan…he got…ok! By all three of us because of the relief of NOT getting caught. So…how does this story end? When Isabella and I left after the vacation, and went home…she sent a message from the airport where we hid it….next trip she’s getting paybacks 🙂
Nik here, yea Isa folded and told Daddy we hid the paddle. Of course he asked me about it and if I was aware that it was hidden (because even though Isa told Daddy, she didn’t rat Piper and I out, she said SHE hid it. BUT, he knew better. I had to confess at that point and get the paddle and give it to him. Which was the beginning of 7 nights of the dana. Which was totally not worth it. Well, actually maybe it was cause we all three had punishment spankings coming and with the dana out of the picture, we were saved from its evilness… But the week of the dana after was no walk in the park.
**Stay tuned for our next story which involves…sneaking out of the house at 2am…climbing trees and tire swings…and maybe a ghost 🙂
Love, Piper,Nik & Isa!
