Can I call this one sensory play? 

Can I call this one sensory play? 

Baby R’s realised there were new things he needed but couldn’t have on this window sill last week and it seems my futile attempts to teach him the word ‘no’ have fallen on deaf ears. Does anyone else’s baby smile and laugh when you try a firm ‘no’ ? Any way, I digress, I nipped out of the room for a second, checking everything was safe before doing so, only to return to this….

my mischievous baby


What you should know is that this ornament (yes, the flowers are fake) has been the saviour of many a grumpy moment, distracting Baby R out of a whinge and immediately producing coos and smiles. We have no idea why, it’s up there for his love of the Dyson, maybe he’ll be a tidy florist one day, who knows, what we do know though is that we NEED this fake flower arrangement so to find it partially demolished is somewhat worrying.

Baby R: 1 – flower:s -0.

    It’s amazing what captivates babies. I think you do have a budding florist in the making though #WickedWednesdays

    Aw, but look at that little face! A is constantly pointing up at the shelves we hide everything on, he’s getting far too clever now..

    Amazing work – that is some pretty super strength from Baby R to get them off too! #Wickedwednesday

      I know, I’ve been watching him stretching up to get it for a while not thinking he’d master it so quickly.

      My advice is to get on your hands & knees & see the world from his eye level, you’ll be surprised what they’ll find interesting!

      What ever it takes to grab 5 mins to get ready sometimes.

    Oh dear lol. My daughter doesn’t take any notice when I say no either. When I first used to say it, she’d cry so I think I’m probably more gentle when I say it now and so now she takes no notice. She listens to her Dad if he says it but with me, she’s starting blinking really fast like she’s trying to flutter her eyelashes to get away with it. I feel like laughing but I try not to x x

      Bless her, perfecting the flutter so young. That’s genius!

    It’s an adorable picture. Isn’t it strange what they can fixate on? And no, yours isn’t the only one who smiles and giggles at a firm no. Mine either does that or cries inconsolably until something distracts her. It’s a coin toss, really, about how she’ll respond.

      He’s started pausing & working out if he’s going to listen today. I think he’s upping his game

    hahaha! This made me laugh out loud. Sorry! It’s strange what gets their attention at that age isn’t it x

      it just comes down to the fact he’s a little bugger sometime!

    That looks familiar. Matthew did the same with mine on the window sill.

    • 11th April 2015 / 10:21 am

      It’s always the things they shouldn’t have that gets there attention.

    • 11th April 2015 / 10:18 am

      I’m looking at it as a play session and not an appetite for destruction.

    Brilliant! And totes sensory play. In fact I think subconsciously you planned it! Thanks so much for linking up! Hope you are having a lovely weekend and that I see you again this week for #wickedwednesdays xxx
