To repack toys, or at least give my feet some mercy.

Himself's recent shift change also means no more weekends for him for awhile. (If it's not denied, he's got four days of leave at the beginning of October; if it is, his wisdom teeth are coming out the 10th and he gets 2 days off to recover so he can at least watch her while I unpack.) Normally this wouldn't mean much, but right now, the house is stuck in a permanent state of semi-unpacked because I can't do any more without having to take my eyes off Laurel.

Again, taking my eyes off her for long enough to move a box wouldn't normally be a problem either... but right now, not watching her for even a few seconds is asking for trouble. So far today (she woke up nearly 2 hours earlier than usual to boot) she's spread an entire box of baking soda on the futon and living room floor and carefully dropped cereal (from breakfast) in areas I can't reach due to boxes in the kitchen. Between constantly picking up her toys (she likes to spread them all over the floor, too) and this morning's fun of randomly shrieking when something doesn't do what she wants, I'm ready for a nap.

This all leaves me with one nagging question: would it be bad if I just pack up most of the toys for now? Between boxes and the wooden pull-ducks (Amy, they're yours if you ever spawn because I never want to stub my toe on them again), my feet look and feel like hell. It would be much easier with less junk to pick up off the floor, and she really doesn't play with most of it other than the books and cars right now. Hmmm.
