We all have done some strange things in life. Some you were aware of, like pooping in your grandfather’s hand (I found out that photo evidence is incriminating). While some of your strange, past actions live in the depths of your parents’ memories, only to (conveniently, embarrassingly) come up for air during family gatherings.
Sam’s closing in on 9 months in this world. During this time, we’ve accumulated a lifetime of stories (i.e., since last dec) to accidentally tell when he’s older. *hehehehe*
So Sam has recently mastered the art of half crawling half bum-shifting really really quickly, and loves to touch shiny objects. For example, watches, jewelry, and door stops (the magnetic kind that sticks out of the wall). One day, after teleporting around the house, he settled on his favourite door stop in his room. I didn’t think much of it (regular behaviour) till… he sat there for quite a while, hunched over this door stop.
IT. WAS. IN. HIS. MOUTH.
So… Sam the boy that eats magnetic door stops (super hero material?).
Other things that go in his mouth include:
(a) Carrot Sticks
(b) Banana, whole or otherwise
and, (c) (Venetian) Blind Control Strings
We probably live in a gingerbread house or something.
His pace and agility has also got him in strange places. Like scooting under the SOFA, yes, UNDER the sofa. You’ll have to see it to believe it (refer to insta story on 1 Sep 17). Never had so many IG responses till that story. At least he’s now able to babble to let us know his whereabouts.
Guess it’s about time child proof our place?
