Lessons Learned

Lessons I have learned this:

1. A crawling baby is nothing to be excited about, it is amazing the things that they can find and get into. Two days ago when I left the room for 5 seconds and Stella made it from across the room to the fireplace while I was gone. I came back to find her in it with the rocks from the bottom of it in her mouth and both hands. GROSS! Even grosser, yesterday while I was in the shower and she was playing on the bathroom floor. I came out of the shower to find her with the sticky bug trap that the bug man leaves in random spots, in her mouth! (I guess I will be changing my shower time to before Stella wakes up from now on.)
2. Never give your child two containers of fruit and apple juice at diner because you just realized that you were out of her veggies. This equals 3 horrible diapers and bath time! (I am not even going to go into details on this just know that I will never make this mistake again! It was bad for Stella and me.)

So, these are just two more lessons that I have learned in my path of being a parent. Thought I might put it out there for anyone that has not discovered these things just yet and save them some of the grossness!
