I feel like I am pretty prepared for the next stages of A's life...I bought her big girl underwear for her birthday so we can start potty training properly, I have answered so many "why" questions I think I have that down pat, and I have even stopped throwing a fit when she won't eat anything besides condiments for dinner.
But I am not ready for what happened this morning.
It was around 7:15 when A started to stir this morning, so I pulled the covers up and snuggled in knowing I would have about 15 more minutes before she was finished reading her books and ready to get up. And like every morning, after about 5 minutes I pulled back the covers and headed for the bathroom to brush my teeth and get ready for the day. As I was spitting out the last of the toothpaste, I heard her little, "mommy, come get me now" floating from her room. Now, I love mornings because A is always so cute and snuggly, which I rarely get any other time a day, so I quickly finished up and headed in to get my little peanut out of her crib. But when I walked through her door I had to blink twice. I mean, sure we had a glass of wine too many last night but I couldn't still be drunk...could I? There standing in her normal spot by the rail was my little girl....naked...holding her footed pj's in her hand.
When I asked her what happened and pointed to her jammies, she simply looked at them, then at me and said in her adorable little voice while shrugging her shoulders, "I don't know."
Of course I didn't want to make a big deal out of it, and encourage this behavior, but I also didn't want my hubby to miss this ridiculous situation. So I scooped A up, still clutching her jammies, and headed into our room to show daddy what I found. Of course he sort of blew it by cracking up the minute he saw her, but I think she missed the reason for his hysterics. Phew.
But about 40 minutes ago, when I went to put A down for her nap, I could feel my heart racing. Please don't be that kid who gets naked each time in her crib, takes off her diaper, and "decorates" with poop...I am just not ready for that.
