What a Drag (Pun Intended)


Grayden learned to climb out of crib on Wednesday. It was inevitable. My other two were into a twin bed by 15-18 months and never really had a chance to figure this out. When Gray hit two years and was still in a crib, I really debated switching him. He seems so big for a crib. But I could then understand why parents keep their kids in a crib until three years old. I used to think that was ridiculous, but it is oh so convenient. It was Gray's one place where he couldn't cause too much trouble.

Until now.

I would leave him in his crib in the mornings until I was out of the shower. I don't trust him to roam free. With good reason.

Our linen closet is right outside our bathroom door. That's where I keep my make-up. Gray got into that while I was in the shower today. Not only was it all over his face, pajamas, hands, feet, floor, walls, doors, etc, but he had dumped out all my foundation all over my basket of make-up. Some things remained closed and I could wipe them off. Others, like my mascara, were open. I had foundation glopped on every bristle. To say it was a mess would be an understatement.


He's really pleased with his new found freedom.

Oh my gosh! I would have been livid but on the other hand it's seriously really cute. Why does this remind me so much of my own 2 year old! Chase hasn't yet climbed out of his crib and I'm so not looking forward to the day he does.

I am so in the same boat with Bentley but she started climbing out at 19 months. I was so worried she was going to get out of her room that I put a child proof doorknob on the inside so she would atleast be stuck in her room if she got out. Good luck with the messy kids.

Love the post title! Too funny. What a mess! I know it's not ever funny when you discover it, but it makes for a great blog post and cute pictures.

And, yes- I am jealous about the game. I bet you had a blast! But, I am also happy for you. I have been to a couple games at least- this was probably an OSU first for you! :)

I have a friend who has a lock on the outside of her girls room to keep them in at bed time. You can always try that. j/k

Autumn said...

At least he looks good in lipstick! :)

I had early out of the crib geeks and I love the doorknob locks for childproofing. Kept them in their room. Sorry about the make-up, at least you took pictures to laugh at later!
