Why your toddler does what she does

The other night -- roughly 2 A.M., I heard my three-year-old come out of her room. I met her in the hallway to take her back to bed, and in my stupor I couldn't wrap my mind around what I was seeing.

She was dressed in her sister's pants and a Christmas sweater she must have found in the back of her closet, not in the pajamas I'd put her to bed in. When I picked her up, she was soaking wet, which meant she'd changed her clothes, removed her pull-up, then went back to bed and fell asleep. When I removed her wet clothes, she sobbed. I want to stay in my pretty clothes, she cried.

Toddlers definitely have their own unique take on the world. CNN has a great article on baffling kid behavior and the psychology behind why they act the way they do. It's a great read for any parent who has ever stood in front of their screaming child wondering, "What the...?"

What kind of things do your kids do that baffle you?
