Now that I have kids of my own, we also live in a house with stairs. This past week, Mr Fun (aka "Mr Not-so-Fun") has been a bit sick and cranky, so today I was amusing him by letting him play on the stairs, watching him crawl up and slide down.
I started thinking about how much I love having stairs:
* They are great entertainment for babies. Both boys have loved them!! They have spent hours and hours going up and down those stairs.
|Mr Sociable proving that rails can't stop him (16 months & 14 months)|
|Mr Fun learning how to climb the stairs (8 months)|
|Playing "rescue" on the stairs while we were on holidays (3 years old)|
And my last reason is a bit reminiscent of my teenage years....
* I love being able to hide all our mess quickly when people come over! It's much more achievable to keep a tidy living area than an entirely tidy house ;)
