How would you handle these kids?

So my DH went to summer camp on Monday she isn't due back until Sunday. Ya me time the problem I'm having is her 2 friends came to my door the day she left, I explained when she would be back even told them how many sleeps. I also told them how this is my time with out children you know a mini vacation for mom's and that she will come and get them when she gets back. They came the next day twice and I was nice but really WTF.....they came back on Wednesday, Thursday and today as-well but I stopped answering the door. Maybe I should have just yelled at

  • LOL! We have kids in our neighborhood that do the same thing. Trouble is, they come 1 at a time. I tell 1 child she's not home, then a short while later, the next 1 is knocking. I feel sorry for the last kid that knocks, b/c by then I'm a bit tired of answering the door! lol :p It's just kids being impatient little kids & maybe hoping she came back early or something. Besides, when they're out of school, they tend to forget what day it is. Enjoy the peace & quiet while you can.

  • I would just say "nope-she's not back yet"

    I mean unless they are teens- THEN it would be pretty obnoxious

  • I wouldn't handle them. I would put the door on ignore.

  • Put a sign on the door
    "No she's not home yet. She'll be home on SUNDAY"
