going to find mama

    It should come as absolutely no surprise that about 24 hours after figuring out how to crawl, he headed to the kitchen. Um, does this mean that the kitchen floor needs to be kept clean now? Because, look, it's just not going to happen.

      lol, i've heard the swiffer idea before and heartily agree ;p

      i also was going to respond that no, it just means you have to be a little more careful about what you drop ;) (still sticking with that 'like the dog you always wanted' theme...)

      He's a man on a mission - I can see it in the corner of his eye! TOO CUTE!

      lol I am dealing with this same realization now as well. My little girl just started crawling too and her favorite thing to do is find all the rice on the kitchen floor and taste it.

      We use the playpen to barricade off the kitchen!

      Nah, no need to keep it clean. Builds the immune system, it's good for him. ;)

      Congrats to Jacob's new development. My 11 mth old loves the kitchen too, he open and close my boiler and hurried when he see the fridge is open too.

      the look on his face (to me) says "oooo - hope no one notices I'm doing this!!"

      Oh don't worry about it. What he doesn't eat off the floor, he'll mop on his knees. :)

      Notice they spend the first 9-10 months plotting and THEN they take off to perform all their dastardly deeds. If you listen close enough you can hear their mischievious little giggles.

      i'm speaking from personal experience, food is ok, as long as it's not raw meat and chokeable, what you do want to watch for is sharp bits, like the foil from wine bottles, my *now* 3 yr old found a piece on the floor when he was around 9 months and swallowed it. it made it all the way through, then got stuck in the exit end. a trip to the emergency room, a painful removal by the ER doc, and some tylenol with codeine, and we were ok.

      It seems like you start to feel pretty confident about the whole parenting thing and THEN they start to move. Sheesh!!

      My philosophy was always 'what doesn't kill us makes us stronger'. At least I keep them from eating their gummy fruit snacks off the floor of Home Depot!
