So "brilliant me" thought I was so smart to put Ada in a laundry basket to contain her in the kitchen while I checked email. It was like a mini pack and play, yet light and easy to move and maneuver. She was happy and all was well... until she decided to tip it over and fell face first onto the hard kitchen tile. Whoops! Not such a great idea after all. Not such a smarty mommy either.
Moral of the story: Sometimes what might seem like a good plan just isn't. Luckily babies get bumps and bruises and take it in stride. Just try to minimize the damage.
