Would you believe that this is one of maybe two or three semi in-focus shots of 50′ish? This kid moves like lightning. I don’t think he actually ever takes the time to walk anywhere. Full hilt run, all the time. It’s cool though, running is in his blood. I just hope I can catch him for a few more years.
On a related note, attending church is a huge challenge because of this super-duper active little. Perhaps it’s a terrible thing to say, but part of me dreads church every Sunday. It feels like I’m trying to herd very loud cats. Three hours+busy BZ=one challenged mama. My church congregation is very kind and family-friendly – and we especially love his extra “grandmas.” I just find great relief when we go home and Baby Zog can roam free and sing, talk, and yell at will without concern.
In the LDS faith, children can go into nursery at 18 months. I’m looking forward to and dreading this day equally. Looking forward to being able to actually listen in church again but frankly, not looking forward to being separated from Baby Zog for two hours. I already spend plenty of time away from him during the work week. I might welcome it if I was currently in stay-at-home mom mode, but I’m not, so I don’t. To keep Baby Zog entertained, we bring a little Skip Hop Zoo Lunchie filled with toys and books. We also bring snacks and juice boxes. But still, the attention span of a 15-month old is not terribly long.
Moms, how do you do it? Also, I will never ever judge a mother with loud toddlers ever again. Lesson learned.
