Mommy and Daddy fully expect DCF for this one….
My nighttime routine the past month or so has been the following:
- Mommy and Daddy tuck me in to bed.
- At least two or three times I will climb out of bed and go see what Mommy and Daddy are doing or lay down and peek out the crack between the bottom of the door and the floor.
- Each time, they put me back in bed and make sure I seem to be falling asleep.
- Eventually I fall asleep. Usually in my bed but sometimes by the door to my room.
Last night I did the normal thing three or four times and then pretended to fall asleep. Mommy and Daddy went to check on me about 20 minutes later and panicked. I wasn’t in my room. They weren’t sure where in the house I was. Mommy and Daddy quickly found me. I snuck into their bed and tucked myself way under their covers so I just looked like a lump in the duvet.
Well, tonight I decided to do something different. Once again I feigned sleep after a few bouts of loudly escaping my room. Then when they were down the hallway, I super quietly opened the door. Mommy and Daddy never heard me. They were sitting on the sofas relaxing – no TV, music, anything. I was SUPER DUPER quiet. Anyway, Mommy and Daddy decided to check on me to see if I fell asleep in my bed. Once again they found my door open. They went looking for me.
Do you see me?
How about now?
Yes, that’s me fast asleep – VERTICALLY – in the laundry bin. Yep. I crawled in and fell asleep in this strange position. Mommy and Daddy couldn’t stop laughing. Of course now they wonder how soon DCF will show up. Oh bother!
