She’s a Little Runaway.

Approximately five seconds after she learned to walk, Tori staged her first attempt  to run away from home. Fortunately, at that point she tripped every other step, so she didn’t get very far.

But now? Her legs are fully functional. And her attempts to get away are gradually becoming more successful.

Tori begging to go

"Go, Mama!" she shouts.

Tori waves bye

"Bye bye!"

Tori walking away

…and she's off.

Tori and her tomator=

At least she brought sustenance (that's a tomato).

Saved by a handy distraction

Thank goodness for pretty rocks. They keep her from getting too far.

Did I mention she’s only 18 months old? I think I’m going to have to quadruple lock the doors and windows when she gets older.

    she doesn’t seem to be the least bit phased about heading off through the neighborhood!

      Nope. That girl is scared of nothing. Which is both good…and very frightening.

      Not only that, but she picked it herself!

    We have a knob lock, deadbolt, and slider lock. Yet my kid still escapes. Prepare now!

      Yeah. And now that she’s learning to talk, she has to stop every five seconds to ask me what everything is.

      Rocks, sticks, flowers, weeds, leaves…they all add much needed distractions. Which is good,except when we’re trying to go somewhere.

    This is hilarious! Peanut always tries to run away. She’ll do something like pick up the little diaper changing pad that I have (which has a few diapers and some wipes in it) and take off. I’ll be like, well, at least she has something to get her somewhere. They’re so funny, aren’t they??

    You might wanna re think the locking of the doors. . . . read my blog today and you’ll see why!!

    Gotta love the girl taking a tomato with her!! Me? I would take Twix and Swiss Cake Rolls, but the tomato is a much better choice!

    How sweet are these pictures?! What a little doll. I had also been known to make escape attempts on my tricycle. Still a wandering spirit.
