Just say NO to Playpens!!!

So, today I realized that I am officially a mother of a toddler who can climb out of her playpen! It makes me very sad.....first, my baby is not longer a baby anymore! Haha....I know Ive known that for a while but it is now finally setting in! And its almost bittersweet. Second, my saving grace of being able to contain her in one small spot to take a shower has now been taken away from me......The first time she did it was today. I was in the shower washing my hair and next thing I know I hear "Mama"!!! I opened my eyes to see a cute little smile opening the shower door! DANG IT!!! The second time I was doing laundry....and yes, you guessed it, I heard the little pitter patter of her tiny feet running through the kitchen!! I must admit though, she is very proud of her new accomplishment! Cady Bug is proud, Momma not so much!!! I havent been able to catch her in the act yet to see exactly how she is doing it, but sooner or later I will find out....and then Momma will figure out a new way to contain her silly monster because I will not give up that relaxing 10-15 minutes of shower time!!!
