Kids will never stop surprising us. This week's edition is brought to you by Little Ro and one of the moments I will cherish forever.

Now that we’ve recovered from the “squeegee incident“, I am here to share with you this week’s edition of These Kids are Crazy.

As many of you know, I am a stay at home mom.  This provides me with an abundance of time to spend with my lovely children.  Do you know what that means?  They have ample opportunity to prove my point, that kids are insane.

This week’s pretext…

Every developmental period is marked by extraordinary growth and advancement.  I am always in awe of what can be learned in the first year of life alone.  With each developmental period, though, parents are graced with all of the negatives that go along with that growth and advancement.

Little Ro…

Our little Ro is now a year old.  This developmental period is marked by an extreme curiosity to learn to things.  In Ro’s case, she wants to see and touch everything.  That means she has very little time to sit around.  Thus, this post.

She refuses to sit!

As you’ll see in a number of examples below, this child refuses to sit.  She doesn’t want to be left out which means she has to be on the go all the time.  Getting her to sit properly in really any capacity is next to impossible right now.

Some examples…

Her high chair…

Of course it's totally normal to eat your lunch with your feet on the tray!When we registered for this high chair, we were excited about the shoulder straps but I’ve given up using them because she figures out how to escape within a matter of seconds anyway.  In this picture, she desperately wanted to get to the cat below her.

Grocery shopping…

Seeing the world is so important. That's why you need to always be looking out.

On this particular day, the man who was bagging our groceries had blue hair.  Apparently she was intrigued because she turned around and stared at him the whole time we were checking out.  Naturally, she couldn’t return to the proper sitting position.

Picking Lis up from the bus stop…

Clearly walks are for kicking back and being your true self. Here we go again.  When we were given this stroller, we were excited about the shoulder straps.  No use for this little girl!  She makes herself comfortable and I have to watch her like a hawk.

And finally…shopping at Target…

Target is such a relaxing place. Their carts look perfect for a nap.Here it is ladies and gentlemen.  The day that broke me.  I fought with her for probably 45 minutes as we were shopping.  She would stand up to feel the clothes, dive to me for a hug, attempt to roll into the basket of the cart, I held her on my hip, she fought to walk, etc.  This went on and on.  I was so excited that she found a comfortable position to sit in, even if it was only for a minute.

P.S.  Her outfit (it was the 3rd one that day) I got for a quarter at a garage sale!  Check out How to Save Money on Baby Clothes!

The only thing I can take away from this with 100% certainty is that Ro is very comfortable when her feet are propped up.
