Picking up the pieces of a real life mess

| 2 Comments

This is what I caught the kids doing earlier this morning. Actually, it was Chloe who came to me to let me know something was up. Turns out Leo climbed into Chloe’s closet, pulled down the jar of Pyssla beads, unscrewed the lid, and dumped handfuls out all over the floor.

A pretty big mess, as you can see.

This son of mine… don’t let that innocent looking face fool you. Only a year and a half old, but he gets into EVERYTHING. He is his father’s son, for sure. A real problem solver, always trying to figure out how things work and what they do. Right now he loves things that have moving parts or pieces that work together  – latches, drawers, door knobs, lids… I’m sure throwing all those colorful beads around must have been quite a reward for a job well done.

I’ve known for a while now that I need to find a way to lock that closet. The last time he was in there he drew on the walls with marker. Just this week I installed latches for the hallway drawers after the internal latches failed to keep out little hands. How can such a little boy, who barely talks, be this capable? And why do I continue to underestimate him?

For now, I guess I need to install more locks!

  2. Oh My Goodness!!! In cases like these I am thankful that I promised myself to not get too upset when things spill or break. Wow, but what a cleanup! I know we don’t pick our kids, but I must say, you are a brave mom to have such an adventurous little boy! I have a son too, but he likes to break things. He actually broke my expensive purse just yesterday.

    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and leaving such a sweet comment! Honestly, I am still discovering my style and what works with my blog. It’s a never ending process because we learn, grow and change.
