The other night I put Ariadne down in her crib awake. She usually nurses to sleep and then we pat her for a few minutes once we do the crib transfer.
I felt like giving her shot at falling asleep on her own.
She cried for a few minutes and then everything was silent (except for the white noise coming out of the laptop we rig for her). After a little bit, my Mum (who comes over to help me two nights a week so I can get studying in while The Hubs is in class) wanted to go check on her. She comes in a minute later laughing, saying I just had to see this.
I went in, and this is what I found.
We always set her down with her feet at the laptop, and it cracked open just a bit. I guess she decided that sleeping was a waste of time, but computer games are much more interesting, because she turned herself around and had her hands and face all up in the computer’s business.
I did the proper parent thing and immediately told her that she had lost laptop priveledges for a month.
