As I’ve mentioned, while on the road it has been a source of… let’s call it “challenging amusement” to childproof the room where our preschooler son is sleeping. Among the delightful little fillips to enjoy has been the presence of both a television and radio for him to turn on whenever he happens to wake (4:30-ish, most recently), as well as the small fridge where we are storing some food and milk for him. Fun for all!
This morning brought a new surprise. As I was brushing my teeth, I heard an unexpected sound coming from his room. “What is that clanking noise?” thought I. “Surely we don’t have any glass bottles in that fridge.”
And lo, upon entering the small person’s room I found him opening and closing the bottom drawer of the bureau, wherein could be found an entire unopened six pack of Yuengling rolling around. Which, while not the brand I would have chosen to leave in my toddler son’s room (thanks, previous occupants!), is still a free six-pack of beer.
I suppose I could call that a mixed blessing?
