life with a toddler: early mornings

As I write this, Remy is currently twelve months old. From the moment she wakes up, she turbo crawls around the house all day long, quickly destroying one room at a time. Lately, her favourite has been removing the contents in the kitchen cupboards. She will open every door and pull everything out into the middle of the room. Once the cabinets are sufficiently emptied, she is satisfied. I clean it all up after her, putting everything back in its place. When she hears me shut the doors to the cabinets, she races back into the room, and pulls everything out once again.

I love this game of ours. I love the chaos that she creates. I want to capture these messes so that I may always remember them, rather than be ashamed of a somewhat ravaged home. To me, it’s a sign of a happy, healthy, and mischievous little girl.

This is our life with a toddler. My heart is so full.

    She is a cutie and this game never gets old. My almost 3 year old does it even now she started when she was a toddler too. Motherhood :) BTW, I have nominated your blog for the blogger recognition award as I love reading your posts :). Do check it out: https://stylewithsubstance.net/2017/04/11/blogger-recognition-award/

    • Haha oh no! I hope that she doesn’t still do this when she’s 3! It’s cute now, but I can see it getting old. ;-)))

      Thank you so much for your lovely comment and nomination!!

      xoxo

  2. Ahhh, my 18 month old still loves the cabinet game! Although, I taught her how to put things back and now she (and I) love the clean up game too…

    • Well done! I need to teach her that as well. She’s just learning to put things into containers and sharing with mama. She LOVES putting her toys away, so it makes sense that I should teach her to put kitchen items away too! Thank you for the inspiration!!

    Beautiful post! I completely agree, that mess equals a happy little girl:) I would hope her curiosity for the world continues and I’m glad we never stifle it!
