Take a look at this picture:
When Spencer is awake at the time I’m going to shower in the morning, I often bring him in the bathroom with me. I think he likes the warmth of the bathroom and the sound of the shower running. Plus, his being with me ensures he doesn’t get smothered by a big sister in my absence.
That explains why Spencer is in the bathroom.
Caroline loves seeing Spencer in the morning and touching him and cooing at him.
That explains why she is sitting beside him, holding his hand, getting ready to read him a book.
I witnessed this cute scene unfold as I was getting ready.
That explains why I got the camera and took a picture.
Spencer usually doesn’t stay as happy as he is in this photo for long, but this morning he was content just to be in his bouncer next to his sister.
That explains why I left him and Caroline in the bathroom while I got Brooke dressed and did her hair.
What I can’t explain is why Caroline thought it would be a good idea to close the bathroom door. And lock it.
I also can’t explain why we don’t have a single key in our house which opens the bathroom door.
If you have the kind of doorknob that has a small hole on the outside where the key goes, there are several things around the house that you can use to try to pick the lock including, but not limited to
*an unwound paperclip
*the ink casing of a pen
*a lollipop stick
*a straightened-out hanger
*the end of a princess wand
However, none of these items will do you any good once you realize that the doorknob can’t be opened by just poking something straight into it; you have to turn the mechanism as well.
This requires hunting down a tool box, finding the right size screwdriver, and removing the doorknob. The whole ordeal will last about thirty minutes.
And that explains the two gray hairs I just found on my head.
