Mama's little heart-attack giver

I unloaded the dishwasher while Kate crawled around on the kitchen floor banging on various things. (Currently her favorite thing to bang on is the side of the oven.) I turned around for just a few seconds to put some bowls and cups away and when I turned back around this is what I saw:

(Extra bulky baby booty brought to you by pre-fold cloth diapers.)

Since when can she do this!?! Where do I sign up to implant eyes in the back of my head? Clearly, that is something I lack. I thought all mothers come by it automatically.

My mother's generation of parents probably would have whisked right over and plopped the baby back down to safety. What do I do? Grab for my camera that is rarely ever more than an arm's reach away, of course. THEN put the baby back on the floor.

  2. The picture made me smile! I completely empathize with you, Mama! Two days ago, I found Levi (13.5 mo.) standing in the middle of Glory's bed, bouncing on the balls of his feet trying to jump on the bed. Just when I thought life was already interesting! :) Send me your e-mail if you would, please. I don't think I have one that is anywhere current.

  5. Awwww! Isn't she cute?! Bare feet probably gave her better traction than booties or moccasin-type shoes...

  6. What a little monkey! Look at her go! I feel bad for you, mobile baby and all, but, um, I'm kind of proud of her. (I bet you are too.)
