Please forgive me for neglecting you all, I haven’t blogged for a while, simply because life got a little crazy! It was my birthday, which I seemed to celebrate for weeks, I had a couple of sick kids (very short lived and mild, but sick all the same), and had quite a few doctor appointments of my own.
The twins seem to be shooting up, getting so tall, which seems to require a whole new set of baby proofing ideas. The boys are climbers! Climbing on to almost everything, including up onto the dining room table, and the bar stools at the counter, so I had to rethink the set of sharp knives that used to live there! I feel like I need to keep my windows drawn incase the neighbors thing we are crazy for “allowing” out boys to climb up onto the table!
The boys can now reach the water dispenser on the fridge, and can climb in and out of the bath unassisted – both things could lead to disastrous situations!
They are also being very creative with what they use to get higher – their ride on cars, boxes, benches (really anything that can hold their weight) are now being used to get higher themselves.
This morning, Cameron and Mason were meant to be brushing their teeth. I left them on their foot stool, with a water source (YES! What was I thinking??) for a few minutes…. Nothing sounded out of the ordinary. I had my sister on the phone, when I arrive to see Cameron throwing cups of water onto the floor!
I screeched “Cameron, No!! Danger, danger!”
And I hear a little echo, in a much sweeter voice, “No Cameron, danger, danger!” Little Mason was there echoing every word of mine. Disciplining his brother too
Mason quickly scrambled into the bathtub to avoid being hit by the water! (See the little leg in the photo below)
“You are going to have to clean this up Cameron”
Sweet little echo…
“You could slip Cameron”
So even when they are up to no good, I can’t help but chuckle to myself. I also heard a rather loud chuckle coming from the abandoned phone, as my sister overheard it all!
