So today a rare thing occurred: Brigitte took a nap. AND Spencer took a nap. AT THE SAME TIME.
Be careful friends - this could mean the world is about to end.
Spencer woke up first so I quickly brought him downstairs so he wouldnt wake up Brigitte. I popped him in the high chair, turned on baby einstein, and handed him a bottle. He was only half awake so he was pretty zoned out.
I went into the laundry room to throw the clothes in the dryer. While I was sorting laundry I heard Brigitte call out for me: MO-MMY! So I yelled back: JUST A MINUTE BRIGITTE!!! Because the baby gate was up and I knew she couldnt get over it.
Just 30 seconds later I heard her again - only frantic: MOMMY! HURRY!!! COME HERE! So I left the laundry room, turned the corner - and saw Spencer STANDING UP in his high chair, turned around backwards, leaning forward over the back of the chair. I seriously grabbed him seconds before he would have fallen out and cracked his head open on the hard wood floor.
I was so shocked - and thankful that I hadnt ignored Brigitte's screams to hurry out! I turned around to let the baby gate down.....and then the horror set in.
BRIGITTE WASN'T THERE!!!!! I stood there for a second, baffled. Then listened to see if she had just gone back upstairs to her room to play - but nothing. Just silence. So holding spencer, I crept up the stairs and sure enough - she was still. sound. asleep.
I am NOT making this up! A small child had YELLED for me. TWICE. And they had to have been down the stairs because I was in the laundry room with the dryer going and there is no way I would have heard it if they had yelled for me from upstairs.
For once I can honestly say that I am grateful that the ghost was watching.....Even if im not going to be able to sleep tonight! But I will say this - hearing it is one thing - if I ever SEE it Ill probably be checked into the looney bin. Here's to hoping THAT day never comes!
