Today started at 21 degrees, the city frozen, and windchill in the single digits and one tired mama from getting up at least 3 times last night. Little did I know the Great Escape would be today! It is one that I think every parents dreads, pretends it won't happen to them, or just prefers to live in denial, but today I got to experience it!
I was sitting down, after my "angels" went down for nap, when all of a sudden a door flew open, and one VERY happy little girl came bouncing down the hall, clapping & yelling "yeah!". JuJu was beyond proud of herself. It took me a minute to realize, "oh, dear God, my last bit of sanity is now gone! They can get out of the crib!"! AHAHAHAH!
So, I firmly told her no, put her back to bed, only to turn around to have her by my side again! This was repeated ALOT. I finally gave up, got a book (and camera) and tried to read to them to see if I could get her to stay in. Fatigue finally took over and they took a nap. I have already sent my S.O.S. to all of my multiple MOMs. Beau will be assembling crib tents tonight.
Here is little Miss Sunshine in action!
I will admit that it took everything in me not to clap for her or to not laugh! She is so proud of herself and this is one thing she will always get to claim she is first at! Can you tell all those hours of PT & Little Gym have paid off!
