At least my home smells minty fresh

Happy Monday! What are you up to? Would you like to know what Flybaby is up to (bright smile, eyebrows up)?

Already this morning, Flybaby has:

  • Sifted through the litter in the cat box

  • Turned over a lidless sippy cup, spilling formula on the table, table legs and floor

  • Discovered that the wall corner protectors placed by our home's previous owners can come off the walls -- sharp end of the screws sticking out

  • Pulled up the loose threshholds on the floor

  • Rearranged the (previously) floor-length scarf draped over sconces in the living room

  • Foraged for a snack of forgotten cat food and wild bird seed in the floor track of the pantry's bifold door

  • Knocked over two stacks of CDs

  • Took a bite out of his bath sponge that I had to pull out of his mouth

  • Refused to play with toys in favor of opening and shutting the bedroom door repeatedly


...and this was while I was watching him!

Last week, Fly hid a bottle of mustard in his room.

And while I was only feet away from him trying to put two handfuls of clothes in the dryer, he got the mouthwash out of the bathroom cabinet, unscrewed the "childproof" lid and glug-glugged a pool of green stuff around him on the floor. Which meant changing his outfit and cleaning the floor.

Fun times! (Can anyone say, "Let's install even more cabinet door locks?")

Let toddlerhood begin!

Yes...they sure can "discover" a lot of things you don't want them to discover, huh? And all while you're watching them!! Seriously...I think they have sneakiness down to a 'T'!!

It sounds like you need to change flybaby's name to flytoddler.

Love it! And I remember the day when I said, "I have a toddler." It was one of those days where I felt like a stockboy at Target b/c she had been pulling so much stuff off the shelves. *sigh*

Wow... sounds like you stay pretty busy. I was looking forward to when my son was out of this infant stage and sleeping more...but now I think I might be just as worn out when he gets mobile!!!

Busy little creatures, aren't they?

And to think ... we were so eager to see them become mobile.

Yep, I was just going to say "And so it begins"! But you beat me to it! Toys? Who cares about those, there are other things too play with!

Oh, this made me laugh and laugh, because it makes me realize that I am not alone. Are they teenagers yet? No? Are you sure? ;)

I fondly remember days like that. But I'm glad they're far behind me. Ok I still have them, just with slightly older sponge eaters.

It is funny how such little people can move so quickly and be so destructive.

LOL My Sam grabbed a bottle of Nyquil with a child proof cap, popped it right off and tried to drink it and spilled green all over my cream couch. I can't get the cap off very easily, how did he do it?
Oh, and he LOVES the cat litter and poop and the cat food is a frequent snack.
