The Boy Ain’t Right

Yesterday I felt miserable thanks to an opportunistic bug piggybacking on last week’s dental surgery. I had to go to the periodontist to make sure nothing was wrong with my surgery site and to get a new prescription for antibiotics.

When the little kids got home from preschool, I put Elizabeth in for a nap and confined Campbell to his room for some “quiet time.” Then I collapsed on the sofa and dozed off for a few minutes.

I woke up to the sound of lots of loud bumps from Campbell’s room, followed pretty quickly by screaming. I went in to investigate and found this pitiful sight.

Notice his little toes poking out the bottom.

He was completely stuck, like a baby in a well. Bad mom that I am, I ran for my camera and took pictures before freeing him. Knittergran worried that Campbell would hold a grudge for taking pictures, but I assured her that I had given him a cookie and that all was forgiven.

And Campbell being Campbell, I caught him in the act of trying to climb back in the box about an hour later.

That is awesome. And something that all three of my boys live for. Boxes are like GOLD around our house.

Glad he got a cookie for his curiosity!

He will be ever so grateful to have this adorable moment captured on film! I am laughing so hard. I showed my husband. Ah, those were the days.
