I am so glad the baby is walking. It has improved his quality of life in so many ways.
He can follow me from room to room while crying much faster.
He has greater ease accessing utilitarian items, such as knives, tools and the pizza slicer.
His personal hygiene has improved now that he can reach drawer with the toothpaste and floss picks.
He can totally disappear from a room in a single moment.
It’s better on his knees and joints.
A whole new level of hiding places for the remote has been opened to him.
He can now transport two items to the wrong place at the same time. Here he is with two CDs. Sorry the image is blurry. He is actually quite fast.
He can now walk up to a closed door of a room or closet he shouldn’t be in, turn the handle, and walk into said forbidden room or closet.
You are probably wondering why I just don’t get baby locks, right? Below is a collage of some of the failed techniques we employ in our household.
If his brothers know how to open it, so does he. The children are getting smarter. I believe this is natural selection at its finest. If he is to thrive as a toddler, he must learn how to defeat all obstacles meant to contain him. Otherwise, how else would I find the DVR remote in the crisper drawer?
