Before Growly Bear decided she was a super speedy crawler, I could plop her in the middle of the living room with some toys, race to the bathroom, race back, and she'd be sitting there, happy as a clam, playing quietly.
Then she started to roll, so I would stash her in her in her Jumparoo, and she'd be safe and content to party in there while I went to do my business. She's decided she doesn't like to be confined in the Jumparoo now that she can crawl though, so that sucks for me! (That used to be the only way I could clean my house... still working on figuring out what I'm going to do about that now!)
There's no way I can leave her unattended, and unconfined when I go to the bathroom now, becasue she's fascinated by all things dangerous. She wants to chew on the laptop cord, and play with the electrical sockets. Poke her fingers into the DVD player. Attempt to pull anything sitting on the coffee table down on to herself.... You get the idea!
So, the only thing left to do is bring her with me.
And this is now my view when I go to the bathroom...
In other exciting news, we are booked for our first Family Summer Vacation for August! Excited and a little nervous about that. Excited about our destination (a big Family Reunion on Vancouver Island). Nervous about traveling with a 1 year old... I'm not the best flyer, and usually require a concoction of ativan and vodka to make it meltdown free to our destination. My poor poor husband. That's all I have to say about that.
Also, I'm very exited to see that my blog has had over 1500 visits! Thanks everyone for reading and coming back for more!
Off to give Growly Bear a bath now!
Love and Hugs
