Sneaky, sneaky....


Olivia is officially in a big girl bed! We switched out her crib with a toddler bed. It was a big moment for us as parent's and are glad she is becoming more independent. This obviously comes with a price though...she is able to get out of bed whenever her little heart desires. So we have been battling with the little terrorist, that is what I've knicknamed her because she is dang sneaky! For instance; today I put her down for her nap and then I would stand at her door and peek through the little crack and watch to make sure she would not get out of bed. When she would slide out of bed I would open the door and tell her to get back in bed. She figured it out pretty quickly that I was standing at the door. So she would slide her leg over the side of the bed and then quickly glance at the door to see if I was going to barge in and yell at her. Then she would slide the other leg out and again glance at the door....obviously this is now a game to her...yay for me who just wants to break out the cookies while she is napping and indulge myself without having to share. So this evening we had the same battle that went on for about ohhh 30 minutes or so. This time she got really creative.... Joe and I tag teamed the war which was now fully waging inside our house. The sneakiest thing I have ever caught her doing was this evening. I got up to see if she had snuck out of bed yet and as I cracked open the door she was low crawling across the floor so that we would not hear the pitter patter of her feet. How sneaky could she possibly get! So I immediately called my mom to tell her what kind of grandchild she had...the terrorist kind. She informed me that she gets it from her mother, me, and that I use to sneak out of bed and fall asleep at the bottom of the staircase so that I could hear what was going on while everyone else was still up. She also said that she would find me sleeping in the oddest spots in the house just because I wanted to still be part of the party.....Can you say....Like Mother Like Daughter?
