I have a daughter, she likes things. She enjoys learning and making up stories with her stuffed animals. I’m not so sure she likes napping though. I dread the day when she stops napping because it gives us a chance to nap as well. Yep, I’m a vicarious parent.
Last weekend we had a busy Saturday visiting friends. Baby Singe almost fell asleep in the car on the way home for lunch and her nap. I carried her inside, read her a few books, and then put her in her overpopulated crib. She plays and chats with the stuffed animals as I imagine most girls her age do.
Mrs. Lessinge and I go down to the basement to relax in front of the TV. An hour later our daughter is still awake in her crib. She’s not winding down at all. I decide to wander upstairs and take a peek on her. I open the door and started laughing because Baby Singe was completely naked. She removed all her clothes and was just playing in her crib. I was very impressed and highly amused. “Mrs. Lessinges, you need to come up here and see why our daughter isn’t sleeping”.
Last night I was just about to hit the sack when the little one wakes up. She immediately says “I want to sleep in mommy and daddy’s bed”. I scurry up the stairs and notice she’s fully clothed, meaning her pajamas were still in place. Unfortunately her sheets were wet. We had our first full on bed wetting incident. This would probably happen every night… if every night she took off her diaper in the middle of the night.
Baby Singe took off her pajama bottoms, then took off her dry overnight diaper, and slyly pulled her pajama bottoms back up. Not sure why she did this, but it’s not the best way to stay dry overnight. It does get daddy to read a few more Care Bear books though in the middle of the night.
Since we’re talking about plumbing issues, we had to spend $1500 to fix our pipes after a wash cloth slipped down the drain again. We’ve lost at least two down the drain that I know of. I once snaked our bathtub drain and found lots of hair and a shampoo cap. 80 year old houses aren’t known for their equisite plumbing, but they do have fantastic charm.
