The little things are everywhere….

So Knittybaby is on the move. My peaceful existance (did I realy just say “peaceful?”) is over. No longer can I just clear a little area on the floor and plop him down. And no matter how hard I try to contain it, Little Man’s little stuff is everywhere. I think every other word out of my mouth is, “Crap, get that! It’s a CHOKING HAZARD!!!!” as Knittybaby does his beast to devour paper, plant leaves, and the wheels off his big brother’s trains. My ultra paranoia is starting to make the Skeptic a little bit crazy, who being a farm boy and all, tends to be a little less freaked out about things.

When Little Man was small this age was easy. We had one small box of toys for him that were no problem. All I had to do was mop and let him go. This, however, is a new deal. Moms of two? How on earth did you handle this? I keep trying to keep the small toys upstairs but they migrate, everywhere!!!

The sweater story is coming, seriously. But I need good pictures for you all, and I’ve been busy setting up partners for the coffee swap. But that’s done, it’s sunny day, perfect for a photo shoot.

Oh, and thanks for all the comment suggestions. I’m either going for Haloscan or WordPress. In the meantime, you all as ever, totally rock. And sorry if I’ve been awol from your blogs. I’m a week behind on Bloglines…..sigh. I’ll be back.:-)

    This is why I only have cats. Babies are hard. If I had “real” children you would be reading about me in the news. And not in a good way.

    I salute all parents regularly and heartily!!! I honestly don’t know how you do it…

    Gates. Gates and playpens. Also, my kids were four years apart so the older one kept his stuff away from baby brother on purpose.

    It’s hard! We have the third who is 11 months and two older sisters who have Polly Pockets, Barbies, doll accessories, beads, buttons, markers, crayons, American Girl things, well, okay – I could go on and on and on!
    So far, I just have to be very vigilant. If I don’t have time to be vigilant, I have a playyard for him (that we just started to use). The pack n play is just too small to play in I think. The play yard has lots of room to run!
    Aside from that, I just repeat over and over to the girls to keep things put away up high. They are 4 and 7 and it’s still a daily battle to keep things picked up and put away!
    Good luck! I’ll keep my fingers crossed that nothing gets swallowed over there!

    I know it was so much easier when you only have one, I agree vigilance is the key. Mine were 3 years apart, so it seemed like there were choking hazards everywhere.

    My girls, Frick & Frack are 21mos apart. A friend had given Frick dress-up clothes as a gift, and her favorite was a metallic blue, fringed number that shed like crazy. I do firmly believe Frack started crawling at 4 mos for the sole purpose of getting to the shiny fringe that Frick left in her wake. The good news is that most of it is small enough so that it passes harmlessly through their digestive systems.
    I know that now.
    It’ll freak you out at first, but it sounds like you’re on top of it, so if the occasional thing gets by you, don’t beat yourself up too badly. As a mom of 2, there’ll be enough other things to that will come up that will make you doubt your competence. :O) BTDT.
    Like I always say, if the evolution theory was really true, all mothers would have more than 2 arms!

    is there anyway you can put a stake in the floor, and then tie a leash around your child? i’m just joking. When i say that, alot of parents get horrified like i really think that, but i’m just trying to make them laugh a little. 🙂 good luck with him. i love the age when they run around and get into trouble. being a non-parent..i find it hysterical. 🙂
