I sometimes say that our little boy reminds me of a Muppet Baby because of all the zany adventures he has in his crib when he thinks we aren’t watching. (If you don’t get what I’m talking about do yourself a favor and watch a few episodes…you can thank me later!) Like today for instance…..
Dad Get’s Played By A 9 Month Old….Again!
After feeding him a nice, yummy, lunch he started to close his little eyes and get all cute and cuddly which typically means it’s nap time. So I tip-toe into his room, quietly lay him down, and tip-toe back out. Ahhhh…Noah’s finally enjoying a much-needed nap…and dad finally gets to work on a few things.
…or so I thought!
Within just a few minutes of me leaving his room (where he was sleeping like the baby he is) I hear a mini-party coming from out of his nursery.
I just laid him down….he was sound asleep…..what in the world is going on in there??!?
So I put down what I was doing, quietly tip-toed back into his room, and guess what…..I got played. Again. (see yesterday’s post.)
You’ve got to be kidding me! Are you telling me this little boy pretended to go to sleep, allowed me to lay him every so peacefully into his crib, managed to stay in character all the way until he was 100% sure I was long gone…and then decided to have a party in his crib….? Wow. That’s my boy!
Whoever thinks that children born with Down syndrome aren’t smart (and even a little manipulative at times) little cookies should just spend a day in our house. Our little boy may only be 9 months old…be he already knows how to play the game.
Well played baby Noah, well played.
Have you ever caught your little one ‘playing’ you? Tell me about it.
