  1. Life With The Top Down Says:

    Hahahaha! I see someone must be walking. It’s amazing the havoc one small person can accomplish in a matter of seconds…I still think children between 1 & 3 are really Ninjas sent to test us. Good Luck : )


  2. silkpurseproductions Says:

    Holy crap! Is Baby Byronic really a year old already? That just seems wrong somehow. It seems she is a very curious child. That can be a good thing. Keep that outlet covered. I know from experience she won’t think that one is worth it.


  3. Exile on Pain Street Says:

    Just wait until she discovers the funhouse staircase. That comes a little later. I won’t say anything more. I don’t want to spoil the surprises in store for you.

    Miss the innocense of chilhood


  5. Deborah the Closet Monster Says:

    This gets me excited all over again for my new little one on the way! Also terrified, but mostly excited. Though Li’lD gravitated toward all things dangerous and circumnavigated all child protection devices, his wonder over things I’d stopped seeing was great reminder to keep really looking. 😀

    If written from the perspective of your cat, it would be a panel featuring empty boxes, iPhone earbuds, and poisonous plants.


  7. mistyslaws Says:

    And here I was planning a trip to Vegas. But obviously, I can skip THAT boring place. I’m switching itineraries . . . your house here I come!! Can’t wait to get hold of those delicious squeaky toys!!


  8. Go Jules Go Says:

    Some of the outlets in our house are upside down or sideways, and I like to think of them as not sad or confused, but Outlets Gone Wild.


  9. BrainRants Says:

    Pot and Pan cabinet = On-demand musical instrument collection


  10. Michael Says:

    Boy, I can’t wait till I have kids.


  11. Maggie O'C Says:

    They are so cute but the dishwasher soap thing always freaked me out. Now they’re teenagers and I miss just worrying about them writing on the walls with crayons. This is a good one!


  12. Distinguished Malcontent Says:

    Don’t forget the Incredibly Marvelous Bicycle Game, where the goal is to grab a standing bicycle by the chain and bring it crashing down on your own soft head. What could possibly be more fun!?


  13. Charlene Woodley Says:

    Enjoy the teleporting while you can – climbing comes next. 🙂


  14. thesinglecell Says:

    Good God, she’s a year old already?! Tip: when she’s potty-trained in a while, make sure she’s not also into finger-painting. Your bathroom will be brown.


  15. tdawneightyone Says:

    I have to laugh because my one yr old is attracted to the same things. If its gross (the toilet) or has even a slight chance of scaring or killing him (wood stove, outlets, tallest thing in the room he can climb) he is alllllllll over it!


  16. List of X Says:

    I feel like your daughter is giving you plenty to write about, but takes away all available time.


  17. Elyse Says:

    And Christmas is coming! All those bright, shiny things hanging around. I can distinctly remember the lovely sound those shiny balls made when they hit the floor — smash and then crunch as I stepped on them. And then giggle. Lots of giggling.

    Strangely, I have few ornaments from my childhood …


  18. Michelle Says:

    Haha, these illustrations are wonderful! It never seems to fail that a young child will love to play with everything except the toys allotted for him or her. I was a fan of boxes as a kid.


  19. Paul G. Eberlein Says:

    When I was a kid, I lived on a farm; every animal became a potential playmate, even the large black angus stud bull in the pasture. Though many animals were huge, I never felt fear, but my parents rewarded me for playing only with the cats, chickens and ducks.


  20. becomingcliche Says:

    Cats really are a puzzle because they’re sharp at each corner and so soft and squeezable in the middle.


  21. She's a Maineiac Says:

    Haha! At first I thought it said “Outlet of Misery”. I remember my daughter had a thing for cramming stuff into the slants of our baseboard heaters. Y’know….plastic toys that could melt, my car keys, my eyeglasses etc. Made for real fun mornings. If we couldn’t find something my husband would say, “Did ya check the heaters?”


  22. Marietta Says:

    Reblogged this on Good things happen every day! and commented:
    I like this post…I guess this is the perspective of children and small animals!

    Ha Ha Ha! Too funny!
