Fact: Jacinta loves her new sleeping arrangements. For the most part she stays in bed once we put her there but there are the occasional late night and early morning wanderings.
Fact: Jacinta has recently learned how to open the refrigerator. Which is, incidentally, why we have run out of apples already this week.
Eyewitness account: The other night I heard the pitter-patter of little feet in the hallway that could only precede a little Jacinta wandering into our room. It was one o’clock in the morning, so Paul dragged himself out of bed and I followed. Apparently she had run out of water because she handed her cup to Paul and he went to the kitchen to fill it. Meanwhile I stumbled into the room in order to get her tucked in and resettled. But first she had to hand me something. It was an artichoke.
Strange choice for a midnight snack, but to each her own.
As she handed it to me she babbled something unintelligible, but her tone of voice said, “Here Mom, I don’t need this anymore. You can put it away.”
