Mommy, I didn’t do it!

I was resting on the couch this afternoon when I felt a big jolt. The house then started swaying and I knew it was an earthquake. I jumped up and yelled at Aidan asking him if he was okay. His reply was, “Mommy, I didnt’ do it!” I told him I knew that he hadn’t done it and that it was an earthquake. All the while I’m talking with Aidan, I’m running up the stairs to check on the twins. They were asleep in their room taking a nap. The earthquake woke them both up, but they were able to go back to sleep. Aidan and I then went downstairs and looked up the earthquake online. It turned out to be a 5.3 (later downgraded to a 4.9) centered in Yucaipa.
