Dumber Than I Look?

Why does it seem that if you are ever really, truly exhausted... the kids aren't? Why do they choose such a night to stay up late, too excited for one reason or another, to fall asleep?

Abby got in bed with me as Rob and I were both too tired to cope with bouncy, springy, hyper little girl. She kept saying she needed to pee. Made several trips to the bathroom and came back to bed.

I discovered the next morning that perhaps, just perhaps, she didn't really have to pee after all. On my floor, between the bathroom and the bed, was a trail of maxi pad wrappers and contents.

And one wrapped around her foot like a bandaid.

Maybe you need to buy the type that advertise you get a good night's sleep from just using the one!

And did she ask you what they were for? I told my boy (4 or 5 at the time) that they were bandages.

That is so funny. Aria has asked to use one to wrap around her dolls like a mink coat...hmmmmm

Oh man, that is funny. I remember mum being cross (or was that embarrassed? prob a combination of the two) when I found her 'belt' and pads (we are talking distant past here) and tried them on as a little girl.

My Joe is completely taken by all of my period stuff.

Is that a good thing?

My 11 year old, when he was around 7, used a panty liner as a surfboard for a ninja doll he got as a birthday gift. I was a good combo of mortified and amused.
