My two year old daughter Miranda has recently taught herself to get out of her cot. This is no mean feat mind you because we have the sides up fully all the time. She has been ‘practicing’ the ‘cot maneuver’ quite regularly of late and is now quite skillful at it.
She had gotten herself out of her cot, no mean feat mind you, and had decided that my bed was much better than hers.
But, she didn’t announce herself in the usual manner. She just stood there for a few minutes observing daddy blissfully asleep in bed.
Well, that didn’t last long, and as soon as she decided the time was right, she promptly announced herself to her unsuspecting blissfully asleep daddy in the most inconsiderate manner. Needless to say, it was a shock to the system.
Be warned all prospective parents, this WILL happen to you at the most unlikely time.
