… it’s 5:30 in the morning and your child has already been awake for 30 minutes. AND you just discovered that your child has pulled another Houdini and gotten her diaper off (while keeping the tabs in tact, of course), and peed all over the sheets. Which you just laundered. Yesterday.
… it’s 6:30 in the morning and you look up and your child is diaper-less, AGAIN, and holding the contents of her dirty diaper with a quizzical expression. Note to self: keep closer watch on baby when she is only wearing a diaper.
…it’s 8:30 in the morning and, while you were trying to get a pancake breakfast on the table, your child was pancaked (the irony!) underneath two folding chairs that were leaned against the wall. (No one was hurt- just stunned).
… it’s 11:30 in the morning and you look up to notice that your child has hit a milestone- she can now unscrew caps! She is holding the hand-sanitizer from your purse, uncapped, with the contents drizzling out on to the carpet and a grossed-out expression on her face. Investigation confirms: she had a taste. Her breath smells faintly alcohol-y. Further investigation relieves: the full bottle still looks pretty darn full (despite drizzling) and child cannot have consumed more than a lick. A quick drink of water and close monitoring follow. Parents are hopeful that alcohol aversion continues into teenage and young-adult years. 🙂
