This morning when I got up I went to Mary's room, as usual. As usual, she had been up for a while, and playing quietly till I went to get her. Her bedroom light was on, as usual, she can reach it from her crib. What was not usual was the fact that she was not in her crib. That's right, she was a free range baby, roaming around her room making a mess. What the hell? She's not even 18 months old, how can she have figured out how to get out of her crib? Should I keep putting her in her crib and hope that we don't have a repeat performance, or should I go about changing her crib into a toddler bed? If it's a real bed then there is absolutely nothing keeping her in bed at night or during nap time, and that's not cool.
Also, does anyone know when a child shows whether they are left or right handed? It's been driving me a little crazy (not that it matters which she is) but she shows a definate preference for her left hand right now.
My sinus cold has slowly migrated down my throat and into my chest, and is setting up camp there. How long should I suffer with a cold before going to the doctor? It's been a week now.
