I'm really not that busy

Finding hilarity in the mundane since 2008

So advanced motor skills are a pain in the ass

Worm has known how to open the doors in our house for a while now, but until yesterday he hadn’t used this skill much.  If he wanted to get behind a closed door he still came to get me. Yesterday the other shoe dropped.  He figured out he could wait until I WASN’T looking and then open a door.

Within 30 minutes I caught him doing both of these things.  In fact the cookies happened while I was picking up q-tips.  I think he planned it that way.

    At first I was like, who is this anonymous commenter, but the truck keys & dinner plans gave it away. Talk to your mom & then facebook me with a place and time and I am there!

    I think it is amazing how little they can be when they truly start grasping ways to become sneaky. I understand and feel for you. At the end of the day, when it is time to pick up the toys, I always find a surprise or two hidden for me…or maybe for him for later. It makes life interesting when he gets into my zipped purse and hides my truck keys. The last time that happened, I didn’t find them for a week (under his bed), thank goodness for spares. BTW we need to get the girls together for a dinner night. Let me or “mom” know.

    I think he would figure out how to get over those gates in about two days. He is the problem solver. Present him a physical challenge and he will work it out. Mothers Day out is a possibility, but would really only buy me a few extra hours of peace a week and not for free!
