Proud Mommy Moments: A Theif in the Night

I am not necessarily hanging my head in shame over this one, more like shaking it and laughing behind someone's back so they don't see.  The other night as I finally drifted into a restless sleep I was awakened by the vibrations of my phone.  It rattled and rattled at my head.  I groggily picked it up to see who the heck would be calling me at 1 in the morning.  The picture on the screen was my husbands.  It was for "Face Time."  Well now that is interesting since he is asleep.  I put my phone down and figured Rich's iPod Touch must be misbehaving.  Just as I was about to lay back down, I realized I didn't actually check to see if the iPod was in its place.  It wasn't. 

I quickly got up and headed to the boy's room.  Sure enough.  There was Ryan, wide awake and playing on the iPod.  He defended he was thirsty.  I was still in too much of a fog to find reason or even simply give him a drink of water.  Instead, I laid down with him and fell asleep.  I woke up about 20 minutes later to find him still awake.  He told me I forgot to get him water.  So we got water and laid down again.  He fell asleep this time.  So did I.  For about 30 minutes.

This morning the thief struck again.  He tried to take my phone this morning and resulted in knocking my glasses under the bed.  Awesome.  Good thing I thing I still have the old ones. 

The face of a thief?

Do you have a proud Mommy moment to share?

Awww, he's not a thief! He's a "borrower." :)

Emmy said...

Lol-sounds like he needs his own ;)
Thanks so much for playing along!!

Your little borrower looks to sweet and innocent. I think that's working in his favor. I have several thiefs at my house: they love to take my husband's phone, but when he's not around their prime focus it food! I need to stop buying junk so they'll stop stealing it. :)

As cute as he is, I'm afraid he could get away with grand larceny and I'd still want to cuddle him!

Nikki said...

Hm, this sounds SO MUCH like a thief I know of similar age that has figured out there are games on his mom's iPod.

Hey, just added you to my Cheeseroll. Congratulations!

My boys are little ninjas in the morning, trying to sneak into my room and get mine! LOL

Kmama said...

Ha!! Buddy would totally steal ours if we didn't tell him it was off limits unless he asked. He's such a techy.

Love that picture of Ryan. Emmy did good!

The last kid that tried to take my phone ended up in a scissorlock. I don't have a smartphone, but it's the principle of the thing!
