The Bae's Trouble Making Weekend
She can quickly contort her little body to squeeze into tight places, reaching around corners that are a few inches wide, where plugs seemed so cleverly hidden just a few short months ago. At one point I just sat next to a plug, which is behind a piece of furniture that she can just slide her arm past, and said no, and removed her from the area every time she made a plug pulling attempt.
She would throw herself on the ground dramatically, scream at the top of her lungs for sixty seconds and then try to convince me a seventy third time that it was really safe and I shouldn't worry about her.
A trip to sit in her crib would dissuade her for a good five minutes, and then she'd be scouting for another plug, hoping I wouldn't notice her inching closer and closer to the lamp and then sharing her outrage when I did.
Sadie would shake her head and say: "Mae Bae is doing something naughty..." emphasizing the last word dramatically as if she couldn't believe what she was seeing.
I hope the outlet phase doesn't last long.
The "I hate toothbrushes" phase only lasted a week. But it's going to be a long week if I'm dashing across the room every ten seconds hollering "no!!!!!!!!!!!"
I have to say that she is remarkably determined. I'm sure this is a trait that's going to be wonderful later in life. If I only I could re-direct it from the outlets right now...
