Ummm.... What had happened was... I was watching, waiting and listening for any signs of doom. I diligently checked my processes. I did test runs of my emergency procedures. I worked on everything I had been preparing for to make sure nothing went wrong when the time came.
Then I fell asleep.
But that single act gave me some perspective on the whole ordeal. Because some way or some how my 4yo found a way into the safe house! How do little kids do this??? She came in asking me for some food. I spent all of this time and money to make an impenetrable fortress (at least that's what it said on the kit) to survive the end of of the world and I was duped by a 4yo. Either I did a very poor job or 4yos are above planning and ignore processes and procedures completely! I'm thinking the latter.
Whatever it is I need to fix it soon. Because, as my old high school principal used to say, a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. And my 4yo has exposed a weak link somewhere. And this issue is like a levee. First there's a trickle then there is a deluge! First the 4yo (trickle) got in then the 7yo (deluge).
I'm going to work on this issue. Just like in the first Eden, there are no children in Eden 2. I will keep you posted. But first, apparently, I have to fix some kids some breakfast. Smarshmellows (that's not a typo) and bacon.
