I took down my baby jail when the girls turned 1 (follow this link if you havent read my original post on baby jail ( http://simplysullivan.blogspot.com/2008/07/my-formal-apology.html ) I decided that they needed more room to learn how to move around. A week later Maddie started walking, so who knows how long I stunted their growth leaving them in a 6 ft by 6 ft pen. It was marvelous confinement though. Anyways, now there is no where to confine them, except in their cribs. We pretty much have the entire house baby proofed, so there are few things they can actually get into that would hurt them if I wasnt watching them for a few minutes.
I had just gotton home from Walmart with the girls. The process goes something like this. Park in the garage, get out baby #1 and go into the house. Turn on the Wiggles and put her down with the toys in the family room. Go back down into the basement/garage and get baby #2. Put her in front of the Wiggles and toys. Go back down into the basement/garage for the groceries for how ever many trips it takes me. Every trip put the groceries on the counter because if they go on the floor the kids will be all in them. I had all but 1 bag unpacked when my phone rang. The girls were being loud, so I went into my bedroom to take the call.
Any parent of a toddler will tell you that the worst nose they can hear, besides the sound of their child crashing to the floor, is silence (which is usually followed by your child crashing to the floor). I was mid-phone call when I heard it....absolutely nothing. I open my bedroom door and dont see them in the family room, but oddly hear maracas. I dont know about you, but we dont have maracas in the house. I quickly got off the phone and followed the noise to the kitchen where I saw this.
I dont know how, but they pulled my newly purchased Halloween candy (Nerds) down from the counter and managed to open the bag. They then were just shaking as many of the boxes as they could get in their hands. Needless to say, Halloween came early for the girls today.
