Anyways, I had really high hopes for Maia. A few weeks ago, she started to get on her hands and knees in the crawling position and rock back and forth like she was ready to go. I was so excited. For the first time ever, I was going to see one of my kids crawl like a normal kid. This past week, my high hopes have come crashing down. Maia has decided that she can get around much easier using the army crawl method. She doesn't even get on her hands and knees anymore. She just slithers on her belly all over my house and is very content to do so. It gets her where she wants to go efficiently and she is satisfied with that. (Insert sigh here)I guess I'll have to start my strict reading regiment with my daughter as well...although...I must say that there is a bright side to having abnormal army crawler children: my floors are always clean and I don't have to lift a finger. I just spray a little Clorox on the floor, place them on their bellies on a cleaning towel and taaa daaa sparkling clean floors!
*Disclaimer for CPS: I make sure to put face masks on my kids so that they don't eat or breathe in the toxic fumes of the Clorox.
