Haven’t a two-year-old is problematic for playing cards with friends, so we planned a late night card night on Saturday…which lead to another problem – tired parents and very awake child.
On Saturday night…oh, I mean, Sunday morning, we went to bed at 3AM, Isaac had gone to bed at his normal 10:30ish time, so when 8:30AM came around, he was ready to start the day. He walked on into our room, I pulled him into bed, hoping he’d snuggle in and go back to sleep like he sometimes does. I rolled over and continued to sleep.
Next thing I know, Isaac is laying on my back to get to my face and yelling, “It’s Day! Mommy! It’s Day!”
I continued to sleep, so Isaac found new things to entertain himself. He climbed off the bed and went into the bathroom. I hear him say, “Oh no. Muffy water.” (We are dog sitting my parent’s dog and we keep her water in our bathroom and I knew it was out).
He climbs up on the toilet, turns the water on and proceeds to try to fill her bowl. I hear him talking about doing it and helping, but the water ran for a LOOOONG time. Zach decides it has gone on long enough and tells Isaac to stop playing in the water. Of course, in typical two-year-old way, Isaac gets off the toilet runs out of the bathroom with the bowl, throws bowl and then himself on the carpet and starts screaming.
I did what any mom who wants sleep would do, I reached the remote, asked for my husbands eyes and turned on Martha Speaks….and then 30 minutes later Curious George. Hey…I needed my sleep.
I did quite enjoy listening to Isaac wander around and find things to do and really, he was trying to help and be good, he just got a little distracted. 🙂
