Little M was on a roll today.
I'm pretty sure he did every naughty thing he could think of. And I put him to bed with the sinking feeling that, most likely, he probably did at least 50 more naughty things today than I am even aware of.
It was seriously a day for the record books.
Kind of a downer as a mom. This child has a knack for doing that to me. I just feel like he's totally out of control and I have no idea where I went wrong, or even how to discipline 85% of what he's doing.
Anyway, one of the naughty things he did was keep Baby B up at nap time.
One of the times I went in to check on/scold them, I discovered that Baby B had dismantled his bedding. This is something he does frequently. As in, throwing all bedding out of the crib--including the fitted sheet.
Only this time, he had only pulled off three corners and then was sitting under it. Like a ghost. He was totally still and quiet when I walked in, but come on, it was pretty obvious he was sitting under there. So, I walked over and lifted up the sheet. He smiled sweetly up at me and proudly declared, "Boo!"
How can you scold that?
It was so cute/funny/sweet/adorable. I knew it shouldn't be, but it was today's Joyful Moment. It was just so cute!
I didn't get the photo of it since I feel strongly against taking photos of children when they are misbehaving--no matter how cute the misbehavior is--because I think it sends a mixed message. And the only time I wanted to take a picture today, I again resisted because this time Baby B was nude. But he was attempting to sweep my living room floor (carpeted). Actually, he was wearing socks. It was hilarious. Sorry you had to miss it, but I'm still undecided on nudie pics.
So, here is this gem I came across last night from nearly a year ago.
Wishing you all Joyful Moments and control over the preschoolers in your life!
