Change we weren't exactly looking forward to

(Printer friendly version)

No, this post is not about the election...

It's about Ethan.

Since turning two recently he's really ratched up his level of energy and intensity. Over the weekend he:

Probably the most exciting moment came yesterday afternoon after he took most of the tupperware lids and oven mits and put them in the oven—where they promptly melted and caught fire once Meghan turned the oven on to pre-heat it. (Note to self: remember to check the oven for foreign objects before pre-heating it.)

Ethan also opened the front door and went outside to play with the other kids... except he couldn't find them, and wandered in the direction of the creek. Barefoot. A four year old neighbor found him and brought him home.

We now have door knob covers, new outlet safety plugs, and one less crib. We still need some new tupperware and oven mits. With luck Ethan will yet survive to see his third birthday and any hair Shauna's lost recently will regrow quickly... :-)

Oh yikes! I'm glad it was only tupperware lids and oven mits and not the whole house. And I'm even more grateful that the little 4 year old found Ethan, your great escape artist. We love you all and hope you make it through Ethan being two with some sanity :-D
