Mischevious Mom-day

The other day I was making cookies. As I turned to put the flour up in the cupboard- I turned back around to see this imp quickly shoving something into her mouth.

Then the little character started dripping from her mouth. What is she consuming you might ask?

This! My newly formed cookies just waiting to go into the oven. I was laughing and trying to grab some pictures when I realized that it was not just one cookie shoved in the precious little mouth of hers, but THREE! No wonder it was coming out!

Then, this week I discovered her sitting on the kitchen floor with my sewing scissors! She had found a scrap piece of felt and mutilated it, and when I discovered her she had just begun to turn her attention and the sharp blades of my scissors on the hem of her nightgown! Luckily I caught her just in time! Unfortunately, it wasn’t fast enough to keep her from learning that scissors cut clothes, because later in the day she found a pair of safety scissors and immediately attacked this poor unassuming shirt. 🙁 I don’t know how I’m going to survive this smart cookie! She’s certainly going to keep me hopping.
Diligence is about all I can contribute to her survival, but at times I fear even that isn’t going to be enough. It certainly wasn’t for her poor shirt- may it rest in pieces. I’m exhausted just thinking about the months ahead until she outgrows this stage. Anyone have some great advice for keeping little firecrackers contained until they’re old enough to know better? Do they ever know better? {don’t answer that last one- I don’t want to know}
Happy Mom-day!

    My best advice is never leave her alone. lol. Our friends all laughed at us for not baby-proofing our kitchen, but really, we couldn't leave my daughter in any room alone for more than about 30 seconds. She would be on top of the refrigerator if left unattended. So she was never alone long enough to get into the bad stuff.

    Good luck. At least she'll keep you on your toes.

    I have a feeling your little one and my little one are a lot alike. I could leave my oldest by herself and she'd never get in any trouble, but my youngest… another story altogether. I can't believe she ate 3 cookies! Good luck… I think we both need it:)
