Getting Bigger and Smarter

April 24, 2009

The Little One has always been short. She is still the shortest 2- year-old that I know. But she doesn’t let it stop her from getting into trouble.

The Big One was closer to 3 when she figured out how powerful a tool the step stool can be. After watching her sister and realizing how short she is, the Little One has become very adept at utilizing the step stool.

She climbs on it to reach things in her play kitchen. She climbs on it to retrieve magnets and pictures that I have purposely put up high on the refrigerator. She climbs up on it to reach the “magic soap” and lotion in the bathroom.

Her favorite place to use the step stool is of course the kitchen. She retrieves pretty much whatever is in reach on the countertops. The Big One is getting increasingly more frustrated because she used to be able to “hide” things from the Little One up there. But now the Little One gets a step stool and helps herself.

So while the Big One and the FixItMommy are frustrated by the Little One’s prowess, the Little One and Gracie Lou are loving it. The most recent evidence of their affection for one another came yesterday when the Little One retrieved the open box of Cookie Crisp on the counter and attempted to pour some in a tiny play bowl in her play kitchen. Needless to say, the Little One and Gracie Lou enjoy probably about a 1/3 of the box while I was attempting to pee in peace. Teach me to go to the restroom, huh?

{Don’t judge me… Cookie Crisp is made with whole grains!}
