Baby’s great escape

Remember that movie back in the 90’s, Baby’s Day Out? When I watched it, I thought gee how is it possible that this baby is so lucky and doesn’t get hurt at all? Well, I wish I could have videotaped whatever went on in the bedroom today, it must have played out just like in that movie…

As I mentioned in the last post, sweet pea has been a bit fussy and tantrummy. So I’m trying to discipline her these days. One of the bigger issues is her naps. She falls asleep instantly at night but will exhaust you to nuts for naps. Today, I let her cry in her crib and left the room. After about 5-10 minutes, I heard the door open and the sound of her cry got louder. I shouted to the hubby, “Don’t go in there! Let her cry!” Then the cry got louder and then some bangs on the door… and there, the hubby emerged with sweet pea in his arms. I was so upset he’d ruined my training session.

“Why did you take her out of the room?”

“I didn’t! When I opened the bathroom door, she was there!”

So there, the little tyrant somehow got out of her crib (of course it’s been lowered), opened the bedroom door, and got to her dad. But how? There’s a chair next to the crib, but she would have to drop into it. This could have ended badly, with her getting injured. But it kind of turned into that movie, except we are the kidnappers who don’t get to see what actually went on in the room that the baby came out unscathed…Image
