The Joy of Tippy-Toes

1 November 2010

Liam 19 months - Bananas

My 19month old toddler has learned how to stand on his toes.

Which means he can now reach things that we have purposely placed just that *little higher* or just that *little further away* from his grasp.

Take for example, above, exhibit A.

I now find HALF-EATEN BANANAS HIDDEN AROUND THE HOUSE.

Yesterday I found one behind the couch. Another inside the kitchen cupboard, inside a cooking pot. And the last one in my husband’s work boots.

And see his bite marks???

It looks kinda cute – in a naughty little monkey kind of way.

But it’s so damn annoying.

My toddler is like a little hurricane, spinning around with noise and energy, creating havoc and mess where ever he goes.

I’ve learnt how to just sigh and put up with all the mess.

If not, I’d probably drive myself crazy by with all the running after him and never-ending cleaning up!

Oh the joys of parenting.
