One High Tech Mama Bear!
Recently we implemented a walkie-talkie system to allow our oldest son a little freedom playing in a field nearby our home. I believed this system was more for peace of mind than anything, but today I was proven wrong when I got the incoming call:
“MOM, COME NOW!”
I quickly jumped to my feet as I got a detailed description of three boys who where harassing him. I charged out the front door to my son’s field location to see 3 older boys on bikes giving him a hard time.
As a gym rat, I have the ability to move faster than most kids expect and in a quick moment I was chasing these boys down. When I caught up to them, they quickly tried to play down their actions, but I went all “Mama Bear” on them, yes I was yelling and even pointed out that they were pathetic for picking on a younger kid.
Be warned teenage bullies, this Mama Bear is running a high tech operation!

If you’re interested, we got our Uniden long-range walkie-talkies at Target for about $20, best money spent!
