Things That Are Nearly Impossible To Do With a Toddler Clinging to Your Pants...
#12: Make a lasagna from scratch: Don't even try it. Bits of pasta and cheese will drop and smear all over the floor. Your ears will sting from listening to him banging and clanging on pots and pans with a spoon. You will both be covered in sauce & exhausted.

Just order out.

It's quite the process with my "grands" that live locally. The 3 1/2 and 2 year olds do most of the dropping - usually under the table. Then the 8 month old quickly drags himself to this spot with his very unorthodox method of locomotion, finds every crumb and orally examines it for any taste/food value/different consistancy. This until his 12 year old sister or Mom catches him in the act and drags his carcass out and translocates him to safer digs.

This happens on a minor scale at our house as well but the crumbs are harder to find in the carpet. I've taken to calling this beloved group the thundering herd, though it's possible they are only a gaggle.

From your writing you sound on the way to recovery - I'm glad. ec

Sounds like you have quite the kitchen crew! Are all babies born equipped with radars that enable them to find each and every obscure bit from the floor that can fit in their mouths? It's incredible to me the things that I pull from the bosses sticky little fingers.

I'm doing ok. Just trying to get my mind off of it...writing has always been my escape.
