Ben has an unhealthy obsession with the garage right now. Actually he has quite a few dangerous interests these days. As mentioned in previous posts, the toilet. Of course, he can't just splash in it, he wants to be in it. He puts things in it too. All the other boys have been told to make sure the bathroom door is closed, but oh yeah, wait, Ben can open doors.
annoyance thing is he has this need to be on top of things. The table, the stepstool (if it gets left out), the couch, living room end tables, just whatever his little legs can climb him to the top of. Which is a lot of things really. Yesterday I caught him sitting on the back of the couch. My first thought was "WHO put him up there?" And then I got him down and watched for a minute and realized, he got up there himself. And was really quite happy about it. It was really cute all except for the possibility of his head cracking against the tile down there. So, I spent the rest of the afternoon pulling him off.
Alternating, of course, with getting him out of the garage. I think I need more of these little things.
I confess that in spite of the fear all of these adventures cause me, I love it (all except the toilet stuff... that is just gross). I don't "allow" it in the interest of keeping him safe. It is cute and terrifying all at once.
