Now that we have a 2 year old in our house, it’s a whole new level of “baby-proofing”. Now if he wants something on the kitchen counter or in the cupboard, he scoots a kitchen chair over and climbs up. When he wants to get in his sisters room, he can simply open the door. If he wants out of bed at night, he gets out of bed. Here are some of our impossibilities:
1. Cooking. Around 5 pm is when our 2 year old has had it. He’s hungry and tired, and if mom’s busy it’s cause for total meltdown.
2. Showering. It’s hard for mom to shower without backup.
3. Leaving a drink on the coffee table. Unless you want it poured out.
4. Walking away from a plate of food. Unless you want hands in it.
5. Leaving the toilet open. It will be used for tossing things in, like toothpaste, toys, toothbrushes, etc.
6. Board games & puzzles. The older kids can’t play any games that have small parts and pieces because they tend to walk away or get moved.
7. Sleeping. Although sleep trained since a baby, now our little guy likes to explore the house in the middle of the night.
8. Wearing necklaces and earrings. They get pulled.
9. Being away from a potty for more than 1 hour. Our guy is potty trained but can only last for one hour so we are on constant vigil.
10. Being organized. Any time I put toys away they get dumped out. His favorite thing to do is dump things out.11. Errands. More than one errand is a huge test of patience. Mine and his.
12. Computer Time. If I try to work on the computer, that means he must sit in my lap.
13. Eating at a restaurant. No thanks.
14. Going to a movie. Fun for about 10 minutes. Miserable for the other 2+ hours.
