Circus Act

The Bee's bedroom is most likely the most kid-proof room in the house. There is no furniture except for his bed, some soft toys and large pillows. The boys are intended to share the larger room where The Bug sleeps, but we haven't been that brave yet. So when I need them to play on their own for a few minutes while I say, take a shower or something special like that, I put them in The Bee's room, where they can't really get hurt, or do much damage. Most likely. (They cannot dump drawers or climb dressers, or pull apart diapers, because there are none!)
Amazingly, while they are in there 'playing' it sounds like a WWE wrestling match, or like some major renovations are going on. Thumping and banging and the sounds of large bodies being moved around. So it is always with some trepidation that I open the door to see what is going on.

Today was a new one. I opened the door to find The Bee's bed turned upside down, and the two of them inside their new fort, happy as two peas in a pod. The Bee, of course, also had his shirt off. I was just thankful that his diaper was still intact.
I've heard from other people (like the nursery leaders) that my boys are quite the climbers and especially like buttons and knobs (stereos etc). I already knew that, of course, but aren't all little boys like that?
Or am I really just raising hooligan ape children??!

p.s. they sleep in a pack'n'play similar to this one, without the stuff on top...they had bassinets on top when they were first born which was really handy and have proved to be quite useful for us...however, big boy beds are in their very near future. The Bee likes to push his in front of the door when he goes to bed at night, all the better to reach the light switch and flick it off and on to his hearts content...

lmao...glad to hear they can entertain themselves happily without toys & stuff!
Not hooligan ape children, normal exploring smart boys.

They must have loved their fort! have they been repeating the trick? Lately we've been haivng a lot of fun with an empty laundry basket and an empty diaper box. We joined a toy library which has scads of fun toys but really they pretty much are happiest with milk jug lids and old boxes :)

That has got to be the most hilarious thing that I have ever heard! A WWE Wrestling match hehehe. I love it. I only wish that I had learned about leaving stuff in their room...
