Necessity: The Mother of Invention

A while back, Charming had a brilliant idea.


He bungee-corded our recycle bin and trash can to the side of our cabinets.

Because every time this little guy gets put in his walker.

He heads straight for the recycle bin.

And rummages around for hidden treasures.

Like empty cereal boxes.

Which he loves with great fondness.

Aww, hi Little Man with cute bedhead!

Whatcha got there?

Is that Daddy’s favorite cereal? ….. It sure is.

Do you wanna keep it?

About Heidi

Hello! My name is Heidi. I went to college and got a couple degrees. Then I worked as a Speech-language Pathologist for two years until Bubbers came along. While I loved my job and working with kids, I love my job as a mom best. I started a blog because I love to write. I’ve written stories my whole life. Deep down inside my heart, I secretly dream to be published in paper someday. Until then, I’m publishing for y’all and hope you enjoy it! Here are a few of my latest posts...

  1. So cute! To be honest, though, I think the idea of restraining the cans was Heidi’s. I drilled the holes.

    Great post, Love!

  2. sooooo cute is he!!! great idea with the trash cans. isabelle likes to get into the trash cans as well.

  3. Such cute pics! And what a good idea to secure the trash/recycling bins! I’m sure you’ll have more opportunities to come up with solutions like that as he gets more mobile! By the way, is he crawling yet?

  4. Thanks, everyone!!

    Melissa: No, he hasn’t started crawling! We kept waiting and waiting, but he loves to “walk” so much with our hands and the furniture that now we think he’s going to completely skip crawling and go right to the walking. Which, to be honest, is fine with me, since it’s given me almost 11 months of a stationary baby. :):)

    Tearese: LOL!! That’s EXACTLY what I was afraid of (that is too funny that you thought that, too). So, I made Charming put in TWO little hooks on each side of the cord, so that if one hook came out then there was another one still holding the bungee cord. (I was going to make him do more than two, but he thought I was being a little too paranoid, so we compromised at two). I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks of every possible disaster/accident that could happen (and then brainstorms how to keep it from happening). :):)
