BBQ Pulled Jackfruit Sandwiches

As if we didn’t know my toddler was a nut bag.

This weekend she decides to learn a new skill.

Jumping out of her crib.

Jumping? Climbing & falling out? Idk the technical terms. Somehow she has learned to throw her body out of the crib, that’s all I know! I was frantically googling what to do about it & the internet told me to put her in a sleep sack. People, she’s DOING this in a sleep sack. So we took out the springs & the legs of the crib & now her mattress is on the ground, surrounded by the crib bars. Truly a little baby jail. I watched her on the monitor try to jump out of this one, but alas her parents’ average height genes are working in our favor.

Can someone tell me the magic age kids chill? I feel like I’m still years off from it…
