August 16, 2009: Lex the Climber
Lex is driving me crazy! He loves the stepstool for the kids to wash their hands and pushes it all around the house to get up onto the counters. Dev was so annoyed with him getting into things he took the stool upstairs (not sure how the rest of the kids are supposed to wash their hands) and Lex just switched to the counter stools or the chairs for the table. He climbs all over the counters, opens all the cupboards, puts things in the microwave, takes things out of the deep freeze (and leaves it open), gets things I put up high in the pantry (aiming to keep them away from the kids!) and completely destroys any semblance I ever had of organization in any of the cupboards. Hopefully this is a phase he gets tired of soon.
