Tiny Dancer

We’ve been staying the week at Mimi and Ricky’s house 100_1682_editedso that Papa Bear can do some volunteer work at our church, building sets for the Easter production. We didn’t get to go last year, but we’re hoping to make a big family night of it this year. It’s quite a show, so it’s something to really look forward to.
All six of us are in the spare bedroom, which you’d think would be an ordeal, but it hasn’t been at all. It’s kinda nice in the mornings too! Instead of getting up to get the girls, they can just crawl in bed with us. I think we need to upgrade to a king for sure!
This morning, Tiny Dancer woke up before the rest of us. She must have quietly sneaked out of the bedroom to explore the rest of the apartment. I woke up when she came back into the room pretending to talk on our cell phone (Yes, she’s a teenager trapped in a toddler’s body. She has a little bounce in her step when she walks, and I call her BeBopper.) Dsc00541 I peaked outside the bedroom door, to see if she’d gotten into anything, but everything appeared to be fine. A little later, I sat in a living room chair to nurse a baby, and noticed that the floor by the chair was covered with Chex party mix, but I couldn’t find the bowl it had been in. I thought it was a little strange, but just picked up the mess, and went on with my day. When Mimi got home from work, she asked if I knew what had happened that morning. I asked her what she meant, and she said that while she was in the shower, she’d heard a crash. Then when she’d entered the kitchen, she’d found a bowl broken on the floor. “Oh! Yep, I know exactly what happened!” Tiny Dancer had decided to clean up my snack dish, had spilled it taking it off the table, and had dropped it trying to set in on the kitchen counter. She didn’t even get a scratch. You just never know what these kids are going to get into!
