A day in the life of a momma about to go crazy...

Alright, this post has been a few weeks coming...and since the day I initially decided to post it...it has grown a bit.

Basically, I just wanted to show what things were like in my house. Now, Jayden is a pretty good little boy...but he is BUSY. He'll usually listen the third of fourth time I say "Down" or "No" but it's not so easy every day. He really likes to climb and play with pretty much anything that isn't actually a toy.

So anyway, one day I left him in the living room for just a few minutes. Seemed harmless enough. But when I came back in the room, he was standing on our coffee table! Needless to say, curiosity got the best of me and I decided to take him down and grab my camera so I could see how he made it up there in the first place.

He discovered that the box of wipes make the perfect step.

He's going to have some massive forearms soon.
and happy dance!
At this point, I thought I'd just follow him around for a few minutes, just so I could 'document' what goes on in my day so Josh will know why the laundry isn't always put away by the time he gets home.
From the coffee table, he went straight to my computer chair and pushed a few buttons. I pulled him off of my chair...
...and he went straight for the end table next to my desk to look out the window. I thought it was over, so I went upstairs to draw a bath...

...and he climbed right up on our bench to watch the water fill. This didn't seem too harmless until a few days later...
...when he actually FELL into the tub of draining water fully dressed. Josh and I both totally freaked out because he went under the water, but Jayden wasn't upset in the least.

And recently, Jayden has started pushing the kitchen chairs around the kitchen so he can get to the counter tops and the washer and dryer. He taught himself this, so I am not taking the blame. This is the first time he did it, Josh and I were both like "Aww, how cute, he wants to do the laundry"

Until we looked away for a second and looked back to find him ON the washer.

So, my days are long. I can't leave him alone for a second. I'd like to think this is just a phase, but I'm beginning to think this is just the beginning.

    What a busy boy! You sure do have your hands full - but he's so cute... - I would have a hard time getting mad myself! :)

    Great pictures too - I'll have to look at these often when I'm sad that Christopher isn't walking yet... just to remind me of what we're "missing out on" lol

    It was so great to see you all on Friday! Have a great week!

    I think those pictures were staged Chelsea. Jayden was very good when I saw him this weekend. I think you sit around all day watching tv. LOL
