The Day the Lights Went Out

Alas, the day has come. Just imagine going about your normal day, laundry, fixing meals, wiping bottoms...you know, the usual stuff when BAM! The lights go out and you turn around and there he is, in all his glory

he can reach the light switch.

I secretly chuckled every time a fellow mom told me it had happened to her. My magic switch, as the little one calls it, was a bit higher than the norm and it bought me precious extra time. Now that time is gone and in the blink of an eye, the lights are off, and on, and off, and on. You get the picture. We've gone down this road before, the power button on the computer, the dvd player, then the tv, even the flusher on the toilet, but the light switch is a hot commodity. This small little switch holds an abundance of power...way more than the other appliances did and don't second guess for a second that he hasn't taken full advantage of his new found authority.

As I grasp the concept of this fascinating new skill, I learn to live with the idea that once you go into a room and turn on the light, it doesn't guarantee that it will be on seconds later. That the fan could be on in the bathroom for hours and you have no clue until mother nature calls. AHHH, the joys of a toddler!
