Tonight after the kids' bedtime Brian and I were sitting in the family room and we hear Kate get out of bed to go to the bathroom (we know it was Kate because she is incapable of walking anywhere-she actually RUNS to the bathroom and then RUNS back to her bed). A little later we hear a "squeak" from upstairs so Brian goes to investigate. He never even leaves the foyer, I hear him ask, "What are you doing??" I didn't hear the answer but I did hear Brian's chuckle and his call, "Mommy, we might need you." Now, this isn't an uncommon phrase from Brian. Basically it's his way of saying, 'This is going to get messy and I would rather you handle this.' It can be a bloody nose, a dirty diaper or even a chipmunk floating in the kiddy pool so I really didn't know what to expect. This is not what I was expecting:
I know they say not to laugh at your kids when they get themselves in these kinds of situations but I just could not help myself. You can bet I was yelling for Brian to get the camera immediately.  It only took a few minutes to figure it out and I imagine her little ears may be a little sore tomorrow but I bet she doesn't sneak out of bed tomorrow night.
