There’s crawling,…walking…and then there is CLIMBING!
We have officially reached that stage. The girls have learned to climb on practically everything, which just means we have to watch them even that much closer. I know they are bound to get some bumps and bruises, but I can’t help but hold by breath. They seem to be pretty found on climbing into their toy totes and now onto ANY chair or sofa. They are just growing up way to fast.
Speaking of fast….I had our first experience with the girls running in opposite directions last night. Corey had a meeting with one of this carriers, it was a casual dinner for the contracted agents and their families. Corey thought it would be great for us to go and take the girls since most of these agents have only heard about the girls but never met them.
It started of fairly well, the girls were alittle shy at first, but warmed up quickly. Before you know it they were running up to other tables begging for attention. Dinner went ok, the girls sat in our laps (kind of) and ate a few things off our plates as well as some snacks I had packed them. After the meal, the vice president did a short-ish presentation and then some bonuses were given out.
During this time the girls started to get a bit gidgety. They wanted to get down and run around. I guess this would be a good time to mention that this meeting was on the top floor of the Chase Tower. The top floor is practically a long hallway with several meeting/banquet rooms as well as the Amarillo Club (a members only restaurant). So, there was really no place to take the girls out and let them run around. I tried to keep them in the part of the hallway right outside of our meeting room, but we are talking about two 15 month olds…come on!
The Amarillo Club had two separate entrance’s on this hallway, both of these doors were open! At one point, the girls both took off in different directions. I thought, “Yikes, what do I do?” “Who do I go after first?”. In a split second, I ran for Blakely. She is a little faster at this point, so I thought it would be smart to get her first. I got to her right as she was going into one of the entrances to the Club. I quickly turned to go after Bostyn with Blakely slung in my arm. As I got to the other entrance, I found Bostyn already about 5 feet into the restaurant filled with men and women dressed in suits and ties. As I rounded the doorway I accidentally knocked over a sign outside (as to not make more of a sense…haha). I grabbed Bostyn by the back of the shirt and pulled her out of there.
The whole thing was so funny to me….maybe it was one of those moments that you had to have been there for, but it was so comical. I couldn’t help but just smile and laugh to myself. Corey finally came out of the meeting, which was thankfully almost over. As we left I told Corey about what had happened, my face literally hurt from laughing.
I’m sure this will NOT be the last time that something like this happens. I can only hope that I will be able to find it as funny an laugh about it. I always thought about what it would be like when the get older and decide to run in opposite ways…what would I do?, how would I handle it? Well, now I know. This is my life. I hope that no one was too offended,… I’m doing the best that I can do. 🙂
