We have recently had a tornado around our house. The tornado's name is Elsie!
Within the last week she learned how to climb.
It started out with a single step. She learned how to climb up and down. That meant the shoes were all a mess in our mud room.
Then she learned to climb up on the bench drawers in the living room. That meant Noah's diapers and changing table were torn apart and finger prints were on the TV.
Then she learned to climb up on the child sized rocking chair, which makes Mama scared for her safety!
Then she learned to climb up the stairs, which means all of my "going-upstairs" junk that I used to keep on the stairway can no longer stay there.
Then she learned how to climb up on Abigail's bed (but she can't get down) which means the stuffed animals and baby dolls are no longer out of reach.
Today . . . she climbed up on the couch all by herself. That means all of the stuff that we kept away from her on the back of the couch (remotes, kleenex, drinks, etc) will no longer be safe.
And . . . she has a thing for Kleenex as you can see in the photo below. The amazing thing was, this room (the whole house!) was perfectly clean the day before for our appraisal.
My life is different now . . . oh yes! :)
