With Lilyann walking now, she is all over the place. You can't leave anything unoccupied...not even for a split second. That is what I did with the broom and Lilyann grabbed it and wanted to sweep like Mommy. She was more of picker-upper than a sweeper, though. I was sweeping up the fruit loops that Lily had so conveniently tossed from her highchair...and when I turned to get the dust pan, she was picking up the fruit loops to eat. Silly girl!
