Every once in a while, as a mom, you get to witness a moment like this…you can choose to react one of two ways. Run screaming from the house, or laugh and move on….(giggling as I write this)..
My baby Kaeden is a HUGE sleeper. Generally does 11-12 hours at night, and 3-4 hour nap during the day, which for me, is pure, unadulterated BLISS. His sleeping patterns definitely help me love him an awful lot more when he’s being a little monkey….
Today, however, as I put him down, I hear giggling, talking and laughter coming from his room….then quiet, but not for long…it then turns into a small cry, (which I ignore) then turns into screams and wailing…
For a minute, I consider leaving him to see if he’ll settle, and then I have visions of him with an arm, or a leg stuck in his crib (which he is known to do). But nothing, prepares me for what I find. LMAO…
As I open the door, I see my naked boy, standing in a puddle of pee. I smell poo, but there is no evidence of it anywhere. My little dude has taken off all of his clothing diaper et al, but managed NOT to make a mess! Thank goodness for small mercies…
So, as I stick him in a quick bath, and snuggle with my lil monkey then change his sheets, he promptly says “nite nite mommy. No more poo poo”.
Guess it’s time to potty train my big man…I’m sure there’ll be lots of stories…
…and here is the Oatmeal, Apple, choco chip, cinnamon muffin recipe!
