Reasons 1 Year Olds do NOT help you be thrifty!

1.  They wash your cell phone in the dog water...oh, and remotes also.
2.  They help you unravel the toilet paper whether or not you need some...
3.  They hide keys in unusual places so you have to search for hours...(I'm factoring in time spent here!)
4.  They try to eat the cat food if left out...
5.  They throw just about everything down the stairs to see what happens...
6.  They remove the batteries out of remotes so eventually you have to hide them all and hope the other small people in the house keep them hidden too.
7.  They find a tube of watercolor paint in their older sisters drawer and spread it around on the sheets, floor and their own clothing.....

Do you see that sweet little face though?  I know it sounds well, exhausting! But I wouldn't trade these days, these hours or even moments for anything.  By now I know this darling age is so fleeting!  So we will laugh at the adventures and buy another cell, remote & roll of toilet paper!  And I will take delight in the last of these baby days!

  1. Ohhh, this is so funny and sweet! We are living these baby moments too, and as frustrating as it can be to have the house literally torn apart, it goes by too quickly. You are good to remind us to count every moment and be thankful.
