C is 14 months old now and although she’s not yet walking she’s definitely asserting her dominance in our household.
A couple of weeks ago, her latest ‘thing’ was stair climbing.
It was as if she had some kind of magnetic attraction to our – steep, somewhat dangerous – stairs. There’s a room full of toys downstairs, but no, it’s got to be the stairs.
And to be fair to her, she’s pretty good at it. If a person could forge a career from infant stair climbing, she’d have it nailed.
But now we’ve foxed her.
One trip to our local major supermarket chain and a little bit of elbow grease later, and voila! One shiny new stairgate was in place.
I promise you C, I won’t always spoil your fun in such dictatorial fashion.
Well, maybe just a little bit, sometimes.
