>Do toddlers have a 6th sense about things already?
Today was Phase 1 of much needed spring cleaning in my home. My sister-in-law joined me in my cleaning party while my brother watched Scooby (who is 2) and Jellybean (who is so close to 10 she can taste it). We start in Scooby’s room. Rearrange it all pretty, toss out the toys he is too big for now, organize his closet, clean out his drawers and box up anything he can’t wear anymore for Goodwill. Then, we do the carpet. Man the difference a little shampooed carpet can make to a room!!
When we finished with Phase 1, I had to take my sister-in-law home and pick up my kids. It is of course late, because we took advantage of the girl time (and my brother, who was stuck with 4 kids) and had dinner together, too (it was NICE to have adult conversation over pizza without screaming, obnoxious kids to interrupt us!). The kids and I get home, and I take Scooby to his room to get him ready for bed.
He is in hyper mode. He wants to run around like a maniac in the now empty space that is his bedroom. And he wants to do this naked. Sans clothing. In his birthday suit. Oh but did he get a thrill watching his pee stream across the room, and onto his freshly shampooed carpet!
Does Murphy have a set of laws just for parenting or something?
