When...(as an aside)

When you put your 3-year-old down for a nap and when you go upstairs to check on him and when he's not in his bed and when you know he's not downstairs because he can't open the safety gate and when you check under his bed and when you check in your bed and when you check in the closets, out the window, in the bathtub, in the toilet, when you wake up his sister from her nap and probably the neighbors from screaming his name, before you call the police, check the dirty clothes hamper. You know, the upright one with the lid on it. He might be in there. Asleep.

That is so funny! We just had the exact same thing happen at our house with our 3 1/2 year old boy. We COULD NOT find him and it turned out he was under the covers in our bedroom sleeping. It certainly makes your heart jump in the meantime. Love your blog by the way!

That combined with the running away incident (another story for another time) I think I've lost about 6 years on my life. Thanks for stopping by, Stacey!
