It has been about 7 years since I had a one-year-old boy in the house.
I had forgotten how much FUN it is!
This one especially, likes to explore his world. I know that's natural for most any child,
but after Carolina had such a slow start it does my heart good to have Bryce getting into so much
discovery type mischief.
Today, for instance,
I removed ornaments from the tree.
He removed the wrapping from a Candy Cane and indulged himself in some candy-licking good times.
I loved it.
I don't remember loving messy antics like that so much in the past.
Am I growing up?
I admit that our family is one that doesn't experience a lot of hair-raising, child-raising shenanigans.
Such things as crayons on the walls, or ink pens on the couch cushions.
Scissors on the hair, or beads up the nose.
Torn books, broken windows, chipped plates.
Because of this little fact of life in our home, I might be freer than some of you to enjoy things like
the removal of all the silverware from the silverware container, or sticky hands and face and shirt
because of pilfered Christmas candy.
This being said, I realize that I have now jinxed myself to the fate of
cleaning toothpaste out of my keyboard... or worse.
But... until the day he does something that really makes me want to cry,
I'll enjoy cleaning up after my small man-in-the-making and follow the tiny hurricane behind him!
-At least at my house there's no fear of removing the toilet to replace wax seals! ;-)
