Like Having A Puppy

When I mentioned to my Mom what Westin's favorite activity is, she said it was like having a puppy.  I couldn't agree more!




He loves shredding toilet paper, paper towels, wipes or even cotton balls. My bathroom looks like this every morning because it is what occupies him long enough for me to get ready.  Surprisingly he doesn't put any of it in his mouth so I just let him have at it!

P.S.  Becky is so sweet to feature another one of my favorite projects today on Liberate Creativity.  This is probably one of my favorite projects I have ever done and I am still happy with the results even though it has been over 2 years! (It is rare for something to stay up for over 2 years around here.)  :)  Thank you, Becky!  Click HERE to see it.

Easton does the same thing and it drives me crazy!!! (And I just realized their names are opposite of eachother - East and West!)

Ha ha! I totally feel ya on this one! Jarrett is into everything. I caught him biting open my cadburry eggs this morning. He actually got one out & was chowing down!

My daughter is 2 months older than Westin: Good News: she has finally moved passed the need to tear apart toilet paper & paper towels. Bad News: She has moved on from this to pulling everything she can reach down in my pantry! I have had to remove everything below where she can reach except for Tupperware. Not good when you have a small pantry to start out with. That's valuable real estate in there! But she's such a cutie, she's easy to forgive - I'm sure you feel the same way about precious Westin too!

This made me laugh! He looks so happy shredding all of the paper!

He is so cute. I love all your pics! I too have a son who will be one in three short weeks. He seems to love any type of paper as well. My bathroom is always a mess when he plays but I would not have it any other way :)

Too funny!!!! I had to find out what you meant by its like having a puppy....b/c I have said that several times lately with Cannon. He chews on EVERYTHING! He has been chowing down on his big sister's little wooden table & chair set now too among anything else he can get a hold of!

LOL Amelia loves to shred toilet paper & cotton balls too - but unfortunately some always ends up in her mouth!

That is too funny!!! And I know it is a different post, but I love the birthday sign - fun keepsake! His wife can even use it later in life :)

This is too funny I caught Connor doing this EXACT thing the other day he almost went through a whole thing of tissues! These walking paper shredders are a mess!

Laura Burciaga said...

So funny!! That is just like our puppies! Sometimes I don't even mind the mess if it keeps them busy for a few minutes, lol!

I remember that stage. Hopefully he won't ever discover the toilet :)

Looking at all these clutters can really be stressful but cute little Westin will definitely take away all your stresses! He's so wonderful!

Love the pictures. My Kenadie is going crazy over Westin's pictures in this post. She was standing on my tower and kissed the screen!

Your Mom is right ... we once had a kitty who was into this activity for a while ... drove my Mom crazy though. She would come home from work and all the toilet paper rolls would be unrolled and kleenex boxes all emptied. (I was a teenager at the time and found it funny.) I will have to tell my Mom to take a peek at your blog.... She will laugh at this and she will love Westin ... she loves babies.
