Hurricane Warning



How cute and innocent he looks. HA!

As I have mentioned before, we have an area of our apartment childproofed and blocked off for Trevor to play in. This includes his room, the hallway and a portion of the living room.

Yesterday morning, Trevor woke me up fussing at about 8:00 AM, so I got up, changed him and gave him a sippy cup of milk. Being Saturday, and I wanted to sleep in, I put Trevor is his area and went back to bed.

A couple hours later, husband got up to pee, came back a few minutes later and announced, "Trevor got out." I'm thinking, "Out? Out where? Outside!? Huh?" Hubby says, "He was in the living room. It's a mess." I ask, "Where is he now". "Back in his area," then hubby gets back in bed and goes back to sleep.

Of course, now I can't get back to sleep, wondering how Trevor got out, what kind of havoc he wreaked, and whether or not he will be able to do it again. So, of course, I got up. I ventured into the living room and was met with this:


That took a while to clean up. We have now reinforced the "fence" that keeps Trevor in his area. So far so good, but I'm sure that sooner or later, when he gets a little bigger and smarter, we will be back at square one again.

Oh my god!

I can't sleep once my kids are up and awake. Your living room mess is what stops me from going back to sleep...

:o)

Yeah, well this was the first time so now I know. this morning after I got him up, I lay down on the couch in the living room because I was too paranoid to go back to bed. I slept for a while until he started throwing his toys at my head.

Fences are NEVER baby proof. Everyone one of my kids always found a way to get out. LOL!

If you love me, you won't fence me in. If you fence me in, I won't stay. Come on. Give the kid some credit for knowing what he wants to do.

Christina said...

Oh, Steve, he gets plenty of credit. Each time we manage to outsmart him, we enjoy it like there's no tomorrow. mostly because by tomorrow he will have figures out how to get around it. vicious cycle.

Scary...very scary. Especially the fact that he made his way back over the fence, as though it was some alien attack or something.

On another note, what great pics for the baby book!
