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.
My darling daughter decided, at two years of age, that life in Australia wasn’t working for her. So, she, being an intelligent little girl, has prepared for the move to LUXEMBOURG by changing all the language settings, time settings and keyboard settings so that we may practice our newly adopted countries written language.
This is all good and well until I bang my head around trying to figure out why my English / Australian keyboard returns me gibberish every time I try to do something with it.
It is amazing what can be done in ten minutes by a little girl left alone with no supervision, access to the computer, and firm belief that is in complete control of the situation.
Pretty cute isn’t she
