my mini magellan

this cruising business is getting out of control. you put her down and no contiguous stretch of apartment surface is safe: bookshelves are emptied, cereal boxes knocked down, outlets fingered, wires tugged, cat box excavated, trash can overturned, drawers yanked open, precious vinyl records unsheathed to be used as frisbees, and adult knees tweaked like radio dials. it's madness, i tell you, madness! she can really move. forget about turning your back on her.

the funny thing about cruising? if she wants to simply cross the hall, she has to circumnavigate the entire apartment. haha! loser.

Cruising is only a touch less scary than the actual walking.

I had two cruisers at once. All of the breakable or spillable stuff in my house is higher than three feet off the ground. It wasn't easy. I hope they don't grow too quickly.

I find the actual walking stage easier than cruising because I didn't have to worry as much about them slipping and smacking their faces on the coffee table... If you can get through this, you can get through anything, MNG!

ha. sarah. our house was ridiculous during the cruising/early walking stage. everything went higher and higher until ultimately we just mounted everything way up on the wall. now the girls know how to push chairs and/or stools to wherever they need to reach. and they can open all the childproof locks. my mom can't, but they can.

mng, good luck. it sounds like bng is drunk with power. don't turn your back for a second or she'll be rifling through your unmentionables.

Soon you'll have the joy of pulling the toilet out to retrieve all the toys and household appliances she's flushed. Good times!

I'm in the same boat. If anyone knows what is so fascinating about the dogs' water dish, please let me know.
