I know parents always think that their kid is super-smart, but seriously, mine is.
Every night, I change Theo into his pjs, dim the lights, shut the door and we play on the floor until bedtime. I keep the door shut so Theo doesn’t leave. He has a tendency to wander the apartment like he owns it or something. Anyway, the door to Theo’s room is paned glass, so we have a fabric panel up to give the wee man some privacy.
So back to the smartness: Lately, Jake has been wanting to join our nighttime routine, so he’ll stand outside the door and meow till I let him in. The other day, Theo heard Jake’s cry, crawled over to the door, lifted the curtain to see the kitty, then pushed the door open to let Jake in.
