Seek and Destroy...

Now that Quarter-pint has figured out that he is mobile we are in BIG trouble! He has officially entered the "Seek and Destroy" stage. I had honestly forgotten just how exhausting and messy they can be when they get moving! I think I blocked it from my memory. We have moved some of the things that Quarter-pint gets into the most, but he still finds plenty of messes to make. It doesn't really matter where I leave him-just give him a few minutes and he will have a shelf or cupboard completely cleaned out! If he's in the office it's the bookshelves-EVERYTHING from three-feet off the ground and below! If he's in the family room- it's the DVD shelves. If he's in the kitchen-it's the pantry (generally the bread and cereal shelves)! I'm intentionally trying to "hide" the lazy-susan from him-that's where I keep all the tupper-ware type stuff. I have pulled out a set of bowls, set of measuring cups and a set of measuring spoons just for him to play with when he's roaming the kitchen.

Half-pint isn't really helping the situation either. A few days ago I found both boys under the sofa table near our front door. I caught Half-pint showing Quarter-pint how to change the timer for the lamp! I think we're going to have our hands full! Now, I'm just waiting for Quarter-pint to figure out how to open the kitchen drawer with all the sippy-cup lids, sippy-cup filters, baby spoons, and small bowls!
