Uh-oh! There's no stopping him now

What is he doing with that chair? Well, Tyler has learned the fine art of problem solving and getting what he wants. He recently learned how to climb up on the bar stools and this week discovered that he could push them anywhere he wanted to go. When I found him trying to turn on the sink for the 3rd time in 10 minutes I decided the stools needed to go into lockdown and hid them in the laundry room. But that didn't stop our determined toddler. Tyler promptly found the dinig chairs and started pushing them around. Not only does he try to play with the water, but he positions them anywhere he can't reach so putting things "away" on the counter or island is no longer an option. We really don't have room for the chairs in the laundry room and even if we did where would we sit? I swear Katy was not that big of a trouble maker at this age - argh BOYS! What's a mom to do?

This one stops your heart doesn't it? When I spotted him it was worse. His little tootsies were on top of that cupboard door and he was standing there proud as could be! (you can just see me shaking my head and sighing right?)

LOL so I couldn't keep him away from the chairs either so by the time Sam got home last night they were all sitting on top of the table and island so he couldn't reach them. And Ty learned a new word - he kept pointing up at them and saying "cha!" Such a cutie! But I didn't give in!
