Not Really Thinking It Through
Today during rest/nap time, Staley called through the monitor, letting me know that she needed to go potty. I responded back to go ahead and go, but go quietly since Adelie was sleeping. A few minutes later, Staley asked through the monitor if she could use hand sanitizer instead of soap and water since that would be quieter. Proud of her for thinking about being quiet for her sleeping younger sister, I told her that she had a great idea and that would be fine. Then, instead of picking up our light, plastic step stool with a handle, I hear Staley dragging our very heavy, wooden 2-step stool loudly across the tile bathroom floor and towards our room so she could reach the sanitizer. The intentions were right, but we weren't really thinking it through...especially since her "quietly" getting hand sanitizer ended up waking up her little sister.
