Mr. Destructo

Nothing is safe these days.

He has now figured out how to push one of the little chairs over to the counter, climb onto it and grab whatever is in sight up there. It's pretty terrifying. He is into EVERYTHING - and fast. You can't take your eyes off of him for a minute. I don't remember Charlotte ever being this busy.


If you open the dish washer, he is pulling out plates, utensils, and cups - in a matter of seconds. If you open the refrigerator, he is pulling out everything he can reach - the other day dropping a jug of milk on his foot. If you open the pantry, he has pulled out and knocked over an entire box of cereal. You don't even want to know what happens if toilet seats are left open.


His favorite thing is to destroy whatever his sister is working on. If she has spent time setting up the perfect dollhouse campsite, he'll come through and destroy it in no time. If she is drawing at her desk, he runs by, snatches the paper, and runs away - giggling the whole time.


It is exhausting and amusing all at once. From what I've heard, this is just the warm up with little boys.

Um, yes! Exhausting is the word. The best baby proofing item I ever purchased were a set of stove knob protectors. Might want to getcha some of those!
