As Matt says, I’ve completely given up on having a grown up living room these days and have opted to let the baby stuff take over. Jamie’s getting more mobile, and this Type A Mommy can’t handle it. Basically, Jamie makes a beeline for the stereo wires and cat toys. Looks like I need to get to the gettin on the baby proofing. Is it summer, yet?
In the meantime, I’ve created a “safe zone” aka “baby jail” in the living room.
What?! She totally loves it! Throw in some puffs and put on the toddler tunes and she’s golden for at least 20 minutes. That’s enough time for me to unload the dishwasher, load it again, throw some clothes into the washer, fold a load and put it away, change the sheets, take out the trash, and if I’m lucky take a quick shower. If you’re a mommy then you know I am not exaggerating!
