Celebrating the little stuff!

My LO is 1 yo and into everything and most days I just end up following him around putting things back away. Today I started out differently, I just decided to do what I wanted and let him go! Oddly enough, now that all the movies and pots and pans are on the floor-he's not getting into anything else. I've done 2 loads of laundry, the dishes and have the roast in the oven slow-cooking. I've played hide and seek peekaboo, and blown on his belly, read him 2 stories and chased him up and down the hallway. It has been a much better day than the recent ones I've been having! Amazing how shifting the focus can alter everything else.
