Yesterday I put Ramsey down for his nap at his usual 1:00pm nap time and I quickly got to work on some sewing orders. I had the video monitor in the room with me and I noticed he wasn't going to sleep. Now sometimes he plays around and talks for a bit but yesterday he was treating his crib like a fun house. He was jumping, throwing his stuffed Curious George at the monitor camera, singing jingle bells, etc. He seemed to be having a blast and I decided if he needed me he'd call for me. Well, this all went on for over an hour and this kid was only getting more energized. So by 2:15 I finally was getting a little peeved and I went in to tell him to "Lay down" or else. Well, he was hanging over the side with his hands stretched out covered in something??? I said "what in the world is that" and he said "Mud". I said where did it come from and he said "from my diaper". AWESOME. At least he hadn't started poo painting yet. So I got him up, gave him a bath and a good talking to about how that is yucky and he should NEVER do that again. He sort of laughed but I so hope he understands? I got him back down for his nap and he did eventually fall asleep, thank goodness. I suppose yesterday afternoon was just one of those "joys of parenting" that people forget to tell you about???
