little climber



Just when we were finally getting Seth to stop climbing on things, he got a replacement. Price is now the climber in the house and the only reason it is a problem is because he is really good at making a mess when he gets up to the level where I might leave boxes, jars, or bottles open while I am tending to other issues. There is also the fact that his socks and jammie feet are slippery and he could fall and bust his head open. When he first started climbing on the kitchen table, I would just lay all of the chairs on their backs so he couldn't use the seat to climb on. But I had to find another solution so I now tie a long ribbon around all of the chairs so that he cannot pull them out to use the seat. It is working quite well. Now if I could only secure the toilet tank...

He sure looks cute doing it. The toilet picture is the best. You cant get mad at that face!

I guess I should count my blessings, although i believe I'm in for a little, rock and toilet climbing myself with Max.

By the way Leslie, I am trying to get that yogurt on line for you. Truth be told however, you should get a yogurt maker...it's so simple just add milk and yogurt starter, leave for a few hours and wa la... you have yogurt.

Oh my goodness! That is so funny! I'm having flashbacks of when my boys were little. My little girl was NOT a climber but Noah nearly climbed his way to his death several times! The chairs and the ribon
