So, my 13 month old baby can get out of his high chair now.  He can reach around the sides and squeeze the handle to unclamp the tray.  After he throws that on the floor, he can wiggle out of the 5 point harness.  No, he can’t climb down so I just find him standing up in the chair holding onto the back of the chair.  He’s the first of my 5 escaping children to figure out the high chair tray.  Very scary.  I caught him the other day on top of my kitchen table too.  I was sitting right there working on something in the kitchen and he was playing right there on the floor.  Well, he climbed up on one of the chairs and then up onto the top of the table.  I turned around and about died!  Did I mention he can’t walk yet?  All of my kids have been climbers and escape artists and he’s following suit!  This has got to be the earliest I’ve ever seen it though! 

For two days only, I’ve got my just for fun kit on special for only $2.00!  Don’t miss it.  Here’s a preview:

Thanks for the template. And having raised a couple of escaping climbing kids I can certainly relate to your story. Luckily only 2 of my 5 did it.

Deb said...

Sounds like you have your hands full with your little one! LOL

As always thanks so much for the template. :)

Oh MY, not walking and already doing all that climbing and escaping. I have only 1 GS but there is not much he cannot get out of, thankfully he hasn't figured out the car seat YET....LOL Thanks for all the great templates you share.

That's scary! Hope you don't have any falls!

Thank you for the template!

Thanks a bunch!! My youngest is my climber. With a cast up to his thigh (to try to correct his club foot) he still managed to get up on top of my table. And that was after his doctor said the cast would slow him down. Yeah, right! hehe

Love the template; thank you!

Mine were like that too. We had to put the middle child in a low bed at 9 months because he kept getting out of the crib. You definitely are going to have your hands full.

Thanks for another great template.

My Little Ironies

  • My daughter lost her glasses in the snow on the way home from school in January. Someone found them in March and turned them into the school office! Amazingly enough, the school remembered we lost them in January. Wow!
  • Just when I think he knows better, my 10 year old son plugs the bathroom sink and the emergency drain in the sink basin to soak his grow creature, turns on the water, and forgets about it until we notice water flooding out from under the bathroom door! And yes, he locked the door so no one would bother the grow creature!!
  • It's time for another worn out pair of the hubby's pants to disappear! Aren't kids suppose to be the only ones who are attached to clothing?
  • My 4 year old says she needs "peace and quite"!!!!!
