Once they started crawling, his father said that all heck broke loose, because nothing moves faster than a tiny, determined toddler heading toward a breakable or swallowable object. (from Mudshark by Gary Paulsen)
Glass, pennies, antacids, razor blades, a bottle of black ink, dry-erase markers, lipstick. These are the things my toddler is attracted to. He seems to have a sixth sense that tells him when one of these things is left within his reach. And now that he is a proficient climber, everything is within his reach.
