Everybody knows that you really should keep your eyes on a young child at all times. But, we also all know that it would be impossible to do that. So, we make their play areas as safe as possible and check on them every so often if we have to be away from the area.
Recently, when I had my back turned, I've turned back around to find him eating my lipstick. I've also turned around from grabbing some canned tuna from the shelves in a supermarket to find him biting down into a pack of raw beef!
Sometimes though, the surprise is a pleasant one. Today, I walked past to see that Aaron managed to reach a stack of sticky notes from my desk and was busy scribbling all over them. I was about to tell him he did something wrong but then he showed me that he was writing down words and labeling Thomas.
We ended up making a game of it. I gave him the spelling and he wrote and stuck the labels on.
This is something I do with different items in the house each day and he was just imitating. Can't get mad with that!
