Yep, I knew this day would come. Woke up this morning put ds on floor while I has shower and he started to CRAWL!!!! agh. No warning nothing.

So plan for week is to toddler proof the house but where do I put all my stuff? have chucked loads out already do I just keep going?

Advice please. I have grey hairs appearing by the second!

Thats it now. Nothing will be the same again. You no longer have stuff, just potential remains of stuff. Toddling is worse though - once they get tall enough to wipe their nose on the sofa. Good luckgrin.

Give up, there is no hope. This is why we don't have 'stuff'.

I say as long as it isn't dangerous/too valuable leave it. They will learn surprisingly quickly.

we didn't bother doing too much proofing. moved precious things and left some stuff for her to explore; soon gets boring esp if we didn't react or touch it ourselves. Said very clear No to stuff that is valuable/dangerous but will always be around (laptop/wires/plugs) etc.

Enjoy the crawling and don't worry about your stuff! Its their stuff too now smile

Nobody tells you children have an inbuilt "seek and dertroy" function before you have them.
