But, what is it about the Little People that they possess this uncanny ability to always know when you have just:
- sat down on the toilet
- called a friend long distance
- put shampoo in your hair
- dared to sit and eat
- stepped into the bath
- started to...you know... in the bedroom (or anywhere else)
- pressed play on your favorite Tivo'd show
- gone to the liquor store without saying goodbye
Whether they're sleeping, playing happily with their toys, or harrassing the dog, they can sense the moment you are actually relaxing. And that is just not allowed! Didn't you get the memo?
Take today for example. My daughter is watching Drake and Josh (don't even email me that she's too young for this show; she has a wicked crush on Drake and it may mean my life if I intervene; the heart wants what it wants people) and since she is normally entranced with Drake for thirty minutes straight I sneak downstairs to use the restroom.
Almost immediately she is downstairs jiggling the bathroom doorknob which is about six inches from my face.
"Just a minute!" I say through gritted teeth."Oh, no. I'm not trying to come in mommy. I'm just gonna play with the doorknob."
Well. There you have it.
