You can never really guess the things that might happen to you as a mother.
I was putting The Squad down for their morning nap, just like I do every day. Claudia was walking toward her room, with her purse. Claudia always shows up last, because she really likes to close the baby gate behind her. Ian is already in his crib. In my hands I have a pacifier and her bear.
I offer Claudia her pacifier.
I remember giving her the Wheat Thin – about 20 minutes prior to this incident. Claudia spits this soggy, somehow intact, cracker on the floor, then takes the pacifier and walks over to her crib, like nothing gross just happened.
I can hear The Squad right now, they are laughing in their room, where they are supposed to be sleeping.
I wonder if Claudia is telling her brother about the Wheat Thin incident?
