Wanna Trade?

Look at this little face.

It's so sweet.

And cute.

And angelic.

Oh, how looks can be deceiving!!!!!

This little person has taken to waking up at 3 in the morning for no reason.

Well, enough was enough, and last night I decided to let her cry it out (gasp). I know. Bad mommy.

So, after listening to her for a minute I knew something was off, so I went in to check on her.

And what did I find?

Not my sweet Katie.

No, Sir.

But, Harry Houdini.

This little stinker had managed to undo the buttons and zipper of her pajamas, as well as wiggle out her diaper.

And as she stood triumph, in the middle of her crib, grinning up at me from her WET, WET bedding...I decided right then and there...

I gotta figure out how to get Troy to go check on her in the middle of the night.

That was us, one year ago, every night. Oh, I hated the naked wet times in the middle of the night!

Then, a very wise friend (read here, Denise Beatty) said, "Just tape her diaper on with duct tape."

It worked -- although Maggie hated it; she still talks about it every time she sees a role of duct tape.

This reminds me of the time I took a nap at the same time as a 2 year-old Thomas and was initally too tired to go in and get him when he first woke up in his crib. I snoozed a bit longer and when I woke up, he was quiet, so I thought I had actually been smart and he had gone back to sleep. I peeked in and was immediately assaulted by the smell of POO. He had gotten his diaper off and was painting the stuff all over the sides of his crib and himself. It was horrible.

At least it was just pee, right! And it's really hard not to smile when they smile at you.
