Look Before You Leap

The other day the toddler woke up early around 5:30 a.m. First she stirred. Then we heard her crying. I looked at the monitor and she was standing up, very unhappy. I asked Andre to go to her because that's been our deal. When I go to her she tends to want to get out of bed to be with mommy. He didn't go. He was sleeping and hoped that she would tire herself and return to sleep. However, that didn't happen.

Then, the toddler flipped the script on us. Instead of going to sleep she decided to leap!
