The Green Zone

Ever since lil a started crawalking, we've had to make some adjustments around this place. First and foremost, babyproofing ensued. I never wanted to be one of those parents - you know, the ones that care about safety so much that their house becomes void of all things non-child in nature. The ones who bolt their bookshelf to the wall 'cause it just might topple over on an unsuspecting toddler. Now where's the fun in that?

Anyway, I'm one of them now. We've completely baby-proofed one room in the house and named it the Safe Zone. It's completely barricaded off -- to get in or out you have to either go over a gate, and ottoman or move a pack n play. This makes it a total pain if you are in the kitchen and have to go the bathroom. (Go over one ottoman and then a gate..) But the good thing is that lil a can play as much as he wants in the Safe Zone and I don't have to worry too much.

Hopefully we don't have any emergency and have to run from our bedroom to the garage or something. We'd have to leap two gates and the ottoman to do that. And you know how great I am at running down the steps. :) As long as there are no lemon bars involved, I think I'll be ok.
