Today’s photo is from the morning nap. I walked into the room to a happy Blake and an ecstatic Madison with her big grin clamped down on an empty slide. What? An empty slide! Uh oh. I walked in closer to find her play pin filled with slides she reached off the shelf. On day one the two play pins were smooshed together far enough away from any reachable objects. Apparently they were pushed slowly towards the bookshelves as Guy’s dad got clothes out of the closet and we hunted for shoes and binkies thrown out. I then did something I promised never to do… I ran downstairs for the camera to try and get a shot of Madison with the slide clamped in her teeth smiling at me. “Recording bad behavior only rewards bad behavior.” This has always been our school of thought. So what did I find back in their room? This shot.
Mean mommy was supposed to get them out of bed. Not run back down for the camera. And Madison was no longer interested in biting the slide for me. Lesson learned.
