Hypothetical And Hysterical

| Related | February 3, 2014

(My not-quite two-year-old has recently taken exception to being placed in her crib and starts screaming the moment I put her in it. This evening I am discussing it with my husband.)

Me: “I don’t know what to do. She works herself into such a state that it takes her three times as long to go to sleep!”

Husband: “At least she hasn’t tried to climb out yet. I used to.”

(At that moment, we hear a muffled thud, followed by more, redoubled shrieks. We race upstairs to find our daughter sitting on a blanket she had tossed out of the crib, completely hysterical. As we calm her down and check her for injuries I glare at my husband.)

Me: “You are never allowed to engage in hypotheticals ever again!”
