How crazy is it how much we are excited about those first steps … and then within the blink of an eye (or approximately 1 month in my daughters case) they are suddenly running everywhere in all directions. Here are some things I didn’t expect … :
– The pace. Honestly how is she faster than me?! The laws of biology say this isn’t possible yet it’s happening ….
– The disappearing. One minute there and next second she is three rooms away behind the sofa and I am panicking on the verge of a meltdown trying to find a lost child in my house.
– The desperation to get outside. Like she has been in prison and is just being released . If she sees a door open to outside or a different room she is there before you can say “freedoommmm” (braveheart voice allowed).
– The household challenges. She now flushes the toilet about 11 times a day, she turns the heaters on, she messes with the settings on the washing machines , she gets into all the cupboards, every bathroom has toilet tissue everywhere …. etc
This is only month two now of full mobility so am sure I have more to learn ahead ! 😂
