Lazy Parenting

Sadie has become very mobile in the last few days. She is not crawling yet but rolling EVERYWHERE. It is very difficult for Mommy to keep her safe (away from Mili's toys that are not appropriate for her). She is rolling from one end of the room to the other, hitting her head on anything that is in her way and picking up everything she passes. So here we are in the "cage". Mili actually liked the "cage" (still does, see pictures) until she was walking and then it became the place of dread for her.



I am not sure how to read this face...Like or Not Like



I took this picture through the mesh




Do you think she has seen a face like this before (maybe from Mommy).
This is the face I get when I say, "Mili wait... one more picture.... look at Mommy."



"Caged" but happy about it!!



Mili is still in the "cage" with her. She likes it there and the house is awfully quiet this way.

Mommy likes the "cage" because it gives me some rest from picking up Sadie ten thousand times a day and spending time trying to locate Mili. Mommy is all smiles now, since the "cage" has reappeared in our house!!

I love the first picture! :) I have a feeling Rachel is going to be fairly mobile soon too, and I need to know all the tricks for corraling I can get!

Not lazy parenting at all. Very smart mommy!

I agree with Sooz. That is sooo handy, isn't it?!?!?! And, hey, if nothing else, you can at least go to the bathroom ALONE when they are caged!
