The other day, in the rush to quickly clean up the house before we had guests, I scooped up the toys, threw them into our giant basket, and ran for the vacuum cleaner.
I dusted, I swept, I cleaned, and I scrubbed.
And then suddenly it dawned on me: WHERE WAS LIAM?!
Oh my gosh! I must have inadvertently scooped him up and threw him into the basket with the toys! Oops! But there he played, happy and content...and very self-contained. It made me realize...why bother with expensive Pack 'n Play's and why bother to baby-proof your home? Just throw your kid into the toy basket and watch him play and grow, kind of like a plant in a pot. This makes child-rearing easy! I don't know why I didn't think of this before. :)
This is a happy Liam, realizing that all of his favorites are well within reach. :)
