Midnight Movie?

Last time, on Jacinta’s Midnight Exploits: the ability of a certain two-year-old to open the refrigerator paired with her propensity to occasionally wander around the house in the middle of the night prompts Mom and Dad to slide a vacuum attachment through the refrigerator door handles. A surprisingly effective child deterrent.

And now, for today’s episode.

One night last week, I woke in the wee hours of the morning to a light shining into our semi-open bedroom doorway. Since we hadn’t left any lights on, I knew it could only mean one thing: someone was up and about when they should have been sleeping. And I had a pretty good guess as to who it was.

Exhibit A: There is only one person in our house who has both the dexterity and the skinny arms necessary to remove DVDs from the drawer despite the presence of a child latch.

Exhibit B: A trail of movies leading to the perpetrator’s hideout.

And finally, Exhibit C: A child who, having obtained some of her favorite movies to accompany her to bed, tucked herself in and fell back to sleep.

Good thing we locked that refrigerator, eh?
