I meant the 'Stairs'. What bothers me most as a parent right now are the Stairs!
Annabelle is bound and determined to climb these suckers. Over and over again!
It was funny. On the first day this happened another Dad Blogger from our Facebook group asked the question of how to prevent his 15 month old from climbing them in his house. One response suggested he "Butter the stairs".
I had to laugh.
We do have a gate at the top which has been there since Lukas was born, and which works wonderfully to keep the kids from falling down them. But we have nothing at the bottom to prevent a determined baby from climbing them. The layout there is not conducive to a gate. And believe me, Annabelle is determined.
I am pretty sure Mrs. LIAYF and my solution will be the same as it was with Lukas, which is to just keep a set of eyes on her at all times. And to follow her up them until she is well skilled in art of the climb.
Plus, a few extra stair climbing reps certainly wouldn't hurt for another member of the family right now either. He is partial to coffee, bacon, and the occasional frosty beverage.
I bet you can guess who that is.
