Oh So Innocent...
Let me tell you a story. When I was a kid (and still now) I loved to read, and would read any chance I got. I had a few different tactics for doing so after bedtime—in one house, I would go sit in the closet and turn the light on in there to read, so I had to perfect the switch-off-light-and-dive-into-bed move if I heard one of my parents coming. Do any of you remember doing that? I'm guessing yes!
But what does this have to do with now?
Well, Jeff and I have tools that our parents didn't… Namely, a video monitor! So, when we put Nathan to bed at 8:15 and didn't hear anything from down in his room, the verdict would usually be "asleep", until I checked the monitor at around 9.
Ah-ha! That was Duplo noises we thought we heard! I just shook my head and went downstairs to turn off the light and tuck Nathan in again, but by the time I got to his door, the light was off. I opened it, peeked in, and Nathan was lying in bed under his covers! I laughed inside, and then asked Nathan if he needed me to sing to him, because he was supposed to be asleep. (He never turns down a song!)
When I got back upstairs, I told Jeff what had happened, and he just said "Oh no, it's begun…" He thinks that Nathan knew exactly what he was doing, and jumped into bed as soon as he heard me coming, but I think it was a just a coincidence… I mean, he's not even three! What do you think?
