It dawned on me this morning that my daughter is at that stage. The stage where playing involves tipping over her basket of toys and then moving on within seconds to more interesting tasks. Her favorite room is the kitchen right now - the most baby-unfriendly area in our flat.
So, yes, she is opening cupboards and pulling everything out of them, ripping pages out of magazines and books, scouring the family room for cords and outlets (that we have covered), crawling into the bathroom to attack the toilet brush (sick, I know and which has now been thrown out)…in short – she is making messes. Everywhere she goes.
And sucking everything of course. Because you can’t hold an object without putting it in your mouth. At one point she was sucking on a used match. Where did this come from? Why is there an old match within her reach? Why is the old match not in the garbage? I have no clue.
I'm getting nothing done and I can't stand a dirty home.
She's napping, so I should probably finish that kitchen now.
