What happened to my chicken?

As of a few days ago, Middie Biddie is officially a walker!  She finally broke through her fear and started walking all around.

Unfortunately, now that she's had a couple of days of properly falling on her butt and learning that it's not so bad, she's lost a lot of that fear that kept her safe and has become a climber.  Yup, figured out how to climb onto the couch today - the couch we use to block off the router, modem, lamp, and a variety of other things I don't want babies reaching.

I think we'll be spending the next week doing a whole new level of baby proofing.

In other news, I cleaned up more puddles today than I ever wanted to clean up.  It started with finding a pee puddle right outside the litterbox.  While I was cleaning that up, I heard a small crash behind me to find that one of the girls had thrown her milk cup to the floor and the lid had popped off.  Swell.  So I finished cleaning up urine and got to work on the milk.  At the next meal, she did the same thing to yet another cup of milk, and I found that the cat had peed on a towel in the bathroom.  I'm so glad we got rid of the carpet and now have easily cleanable floors!

I know I complain a lot, but the fact is I'm a lot happier than I've been in other stages of my life.  Now that the girls are older, they're funny!  I spend a significant portion of my day laughing like I never have before.  This parenting thing has a lot more ups and downs than non-parenting, but the ups are a lot higher.


  1. Your post had me smiling. I could feel the laughter in your words, even when you wrote about picking up spills :)

  2. So glad you are enjoying this part of parenting.

  3. Complaining? Its your blog, your outlet, healthier to get it out. I do love this post. I can picture your adorable kidlets and you laughing. Brings smiles.

  4. I am thoroughly enjoying watching your hubby's segment on the news right now! What a cutie!

    1. He doesn't talk that fast in real life! He had three minutes to deliver about 20 minutes worth of material his bosses gave him.


Please share your thoughts! It makes me feel like I have friends.
