"The Safest Place for Z is on the Floor..."

Zane is 9-1/2 months old now, and he's mobile. Well, sort of mobile. Mobile enough that PG declared the floor "the safest place for Z." I may be a slacker mama, but I'm keen on keeping my precious one safe. I don't want him to, you know, go tumbling off our bed in his quest to practice his mad skillz; so, the floor it is.
Yesterday I dutifully placed Z on the floor in the dressing area of our bathroom while I took a shower. It's harwood floor with a few area rugs - a wonderful combination for crawling practice. Plus, I put a few bath books and bath toys on the floor to entertain him. With all of those delightful and colorful objects at his fingertips, what did he choose to play with? Yep, you guessed it! The (thankfully unopened and encased-in-plastic) package of disposable razors stowed in a basket under my vanity. I guess the floor is the safest place AFTER the home has been child-proofed.

Yeah, as they become more mobile, the more you have to look around and decide what doesn't need to be within reach of their tiny hands. Thank goodness those razors weren't open....that would have been a painful experience indeed. Pulling up and walking has it's own "baby proof" challenges....xoxo

"Baby Proof" is a ridiculous term with no meaning. Yes, leaving razors within his reach is probably not the best thing for him but I promise you this - if that kid wants to get into something he will. The more challenging, the better. I wouldn't stress out baby-proofing, but you might want to dispose of all flammables in the house immediately.

@lmp: until he can stand, walk and open doors, i am certain my flammables will be safe in my laundry room. i actually don't care what he gets into, as long as it won't 1.) injure him; 2.) maim him; 3.) cause me to ring poison control; or 4.) initiate a trip to the ER. i think it's pretty fun to hear him banging on pots and pans. i gave him the wooden spoons, even!
