But I do have to admit there is one fight I let go that I shouldn't. It's when Addie climbs on her chair and then climbs on the couch to jump on it. She does it over and over again. It will eventually ruin the couches but more than anything she knows she's not supposed to do it but sometimes I'm just too exhausted to do anything about it.
It all started here.
When she thought surfing on an unstable object would be fun. Yes, baby, I'm sure it's fun but it's not safe. And you wouldn't have been laughing when you fell off that thing.
She quickly learned how to climb onto the couches, and the kitchen chairs, and it's gotten worse. She climbs onto the kitchen chair then to the kitchen table. She sits on the table and will play with anything up there; glass of water, mail, left over food from dinner. I have to admit it's funny to walk in and see her sitting up on the table, but it won't be when she falls off the table and breaks her leg.
I guess it could be worse. I could leave her unattended outside or something, but letting her climb on things is probably not a good idea.
Do you have any bad habits with your kids? Do you let them climb on the kitchen table and eat dinner from there?
