Home Inspection

Crawling Baby did a thorough inspection of the house today.

She checked out the dog crates, removed the rubber handles, and then tried to taste them.  I just can't imagine those are clean... Crawling Baby was sent directly back to Start.

Shuffle. Shuffle. Shuffle.

Baby is now across the room at the stereo system. Back to Start.

Shuffle. Shuffle. Shuffle.

Stereo System. Back to Start.

Shuffle. Shuffle. Shuffle. Click. Click. Click. Giggle.

Victory at Stereo System.  Baby is thrilled to find that the knob turns, clicks, and even makes the cool lights on the front change.  Well, there will be no stopping her now.  Let's just go into her room.  I sit her down and go back for my water.

Boom. Boom. Boom.

I rush back, panicked.  Baby has mastered the drawer.  She has pulled it open over her legs and is trying to dig both arms in.  I think it's time for some supervised play.
After a bit, we return to the living room. I give her some books, and then I sit on the couch with my laptop.  She is talking to her Bunny Book and squealing.

Shuffle. Shuffle.

I see her head peak over the laptop.  She has pulled up on the ottoman and is reviewing her toy selection there.  She walks around the ottoman, growing ever more excited with each successful step.  I consider going to spot her, but she really seems to have got it down this time.  I'll just pay the bills real quick...

Thump.  Crinkle. Crinkle.

Baby has sat down and is now reviewing the paper bag she successfully retrieved.

Shuffle. Shuffle. Tap. Tap.

I look down.  Baby is patting my toes and smiling at me.  How can I resist? I pull her up on the couch.

And that's how she discovered the Kleenex box.


How do you keep your little ones away from the TV / Electronics?
