A FAVORITE PHOTO...
There is such a cute story behind this picture.
Our daughter, Kendra, was 2, and in "in training" (potty training, that is!) She has always had a bladder that we tease her must only be the size of a thimble, so during potty training, it was not unusual for her to wake up 3 or 4 times a night and call out to us, "Mooooooooommy! Daaaaaaaaaaaaaddy! I gotza go POTTY!"
She wouldn't go alone (monsters, you know), so we would take turns getting up with her and accompanying her to the bathroom. This one particular 2 a.m. was my husband's turn. He got out of bed, sleepily calling to her, "Coming!" while I proceeded to roll over and go back to sleep. I woke up about an hour later and noticed that he wasn't back in bed yet. The clock now said 3 a.m. I was perplexed and wondered what happened to him. So I got up and stumbled to the bathroom, and this is what I saw! I said to my sleeping daughter's still-patiently-waiting daddy, "Um, do you know she is asleep?!" His groggy answer, "No, really?" Yes -- really!!!
And do you believe that the camera was right there on the hamper, and I even had enough wherewithal (in my sleepy haze) to actually snap a picture -- and I am so glad I did, because I just LOVE this picture and the sweet memory behind it.
