All I can do is sigh.

Tonight it smelled like snow and was ice cold outside.

I have no idea what motivated Benji, consequently, to take all his clothes off  (ALL) and go out back to pee down the balcony stairs into the yard. At 1:30 am.  (Not that I would have understood peeing down the stairs at any other time of day....).

So then Nathanael came by and, seeing the door open in the middle of the night, closed it so tightly that Benji couldn't get back in.

We had no idea he was out there until I heard him and turned. There he was, buck naked out on the back porch with his face pressed against the glass of the door, yelling at the top of his lungs, "Mom! Mom! Let me in. Please let me in!"

At 1:30 am.

Was that 1:30a.m. in real time, or 1:30 a.m. in Wonderland?

Sometimes I think little boys take the opportunity to strip down and pee simply because they know they can. Jeffrey once did this in the living room -- he peed into a plastic toy teapot. I threw the teapot away, of course, but that toy is still being manufactured, and whenever I happen to pass one in a store or wherever, I still shudder. (Eewwwwugh.)
