And...the baby wins

And here you will see how Dorian has completely defeated me. All "babyproofing" is now null and void. I am just out of luck. video

But seriously, what do I do now?

That's funny. You better put locks on your drawers. Or hide the chairs. I'm impressed. Lincoln hasn't figured that out yet...I don't think he could even climb up on a chair. Good luck with that. :)

It looks like it's time to screw all of the chairs to the floor at the table! I can't believe how smart kids are sometimes!

My sister-in-law tied all of the chairs to the table. It greatly limited what her daughter could get into. But, it made it a lot harder to sit down. . .

James was never a climber. He still isn't much of one. I have to encourage him at the playground. So I am not much help

Kelley said...

Oh my goodness, Bonnie! Good luck!

he is amazingly resourceful! we had to install locks on all the low-lying cabinets and drawers we didn't want the kids getting into. but the climbing . . . that's fun! good luck with that!

That is one smart little monkey! All I have ever done is to really try to organize so that stuff I really care about (like sharp knives, pyrex dishes, etc.) are really high and hard to get into (at least before I hear the noise and can intervene). I have been known to remove a chair or two (like the desk chair). And somehow we really try to communicate the really dangerous stuff (like don't climb the entertainment center or it will fall on you or the hot stove) and they get the idea because we get really serious about getting hurt.

As an aside...I'm noticing your kitchen there...what is on your floor and your counter? I'm trying to decide how to replace the ones in the house when we actually get closed on it.

Ahhh the chair pull. My boys also learned this trick early on. My only advice is don't take too long in bathroom. It is amazing what can happen in 90 seconds.

Ha, Ha!!!! That's so awesome!!

Ahhh...you have a climber on your hands! Mine never did that, but I've met a two-year old who was found on top of a fridge (no idea...). I guess all you can do is lock up the dangerous things (until he figures out how to get past those baby clasps) and watch him close (cause he'll be ON the counter soon).

With ours we just had to pick our "no" battles....like not playing with the gas stove knobs (down low), not pushing chairs into the sliding glass doors, and not to try and climb the baby gates. Amazingly they understand pretty quick.

THAT is hilarious. He has some core strength, huh? Not to mention perseverance.

I liked the suggestion not to be in the bathroom too long . . . :)

That is super cute!!! What a naughty/smart little kid. :)

That's what you get when genius parents have genius children.
