Like someone stole Steven Jrs. sneaker (only 1) and my mother in law had to use the emergency money to go and get him new ones...that was a crock...the kid just wanted new sneakers...and then once Chistopher NEEDED minutes for his cell phone and I said we can use the emergency money to buy HIM his minutes (they must use their own money for things like that...or no cell phone!)...OMG these kids will try far in all our trips to Aruba...none of the calls were actual emergencies (knock wood)...I was obviously kidding. AHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Now I make a note for whose ever watching them and first thing I put is...NO NEW SNEAKERS, NO HAIRCUTS, NO CELL PHONE MINUTES, ETC....then we get on the important stuff!
OMG, did you crack me up! You have to have kids to appreciate this! I had an "emergency" call last October, they announced it at the pool. I ran to the phone in our room, scared to death. It was my 18 year old announcing she hurt her knee running, up at college and the fact that she made it to the ER with a friend and took care of it herself! Wasn't I proud of her, she wanted to know. After I got done yelling about the cost of the call to tell me this, she was very insulted, she thought that this was important for me to know!

Years ago, when she was with us, she would sneak phone calls home from our room at LaCabana. Charges on my AMEX would be $186 and up!

This year we are renting a phone for the week!

PS - what are black phones at LaCabana? I didn't know about them!
