Laboriousness

My family said to each other that I am in a "laborious" age. What is that supposed to mean? The only things I do all day is climbing on everybody's shoulders (almost rolling off), climbing the bars of my cage (not being able to get down myself), hanging upside down on my ladder (not being able to rescue myself), chewing on everything I see (my specialty is to separate buttons from clothes), etceteras, etceteras. Laborious? Me? You must be kidding...
