I was trying to cook one day and Annie was being such a stinker. She kept climbing to the stairs. We have two stairs that aren't gated. She climbs up the two stairs, stands up, and then lets go of the gate. I am so afraid she is going to fall down the two stairs and crack her head open on the tile. I brought the playpen into the kitchen, it's used for timeouts usually, and stuck her in it. She thought that was the greatest thing ever.
Then her brother joined her and it was even better.
