The Dumping Stage

Parenthood comes with many stages. And I haven't even gotten to many of them yet! I'm sure the school age years have a flavor all their own, and we won't even touch teenagehood yet.

Some are a wonderful relief, like the sleeping through the night stage. (Dear Adrianna, anytime you'd like to reach this stage I would be eternally grateful, Love mama.) Some are full of endless challenges, like the tantrum stage. Some you wish would never end, like the sweet baby falling asleep in your arms stage.

And others you just can't get through fast enough.

Adrianna is currently in the dumping stage. Big time. On the plus side, this behavior usually enables her to reliably "play" by herself for a solid 10 to 15 minutes.

And the down side? Well, the room in the picture WAS all picked up 10 minutes ago.....
