The Climber

The following is an actual conversation that took place this morning. Setting the stage... I am upstairs in my room on the computer while the kids are downstairs in the play room, playing.

Caden: Mommmmmyyyyyy!!!

Me: Yes Caden.

Caden: Come mere

Me: I'll be there in a minute

Caden: Come mere, help me

Me: I'll be right there

Caden: Help me, I stuck

Me: Okay I'm coming


Silence for about 25 sec.

Caden: Mommmmmyyyyy!!!

Me: Are you still stuck?


Caden: Yes, help me



I take about another minute to finish up what I'm doing. Seeing as there is no urgency in his voice, he's not crying and he often likes to pretend like he is stuck so I can "rescue" him and pull him out. Often times he is lying in the middle of the floor with nothing around saying he is stuck. So I wasn't hurrying.


As I enter the play room, this is what I see.


Maybe next time I'll respond a little faster

Funny and terrifying all at the same time! I am very impressed that he managed to get up there in the first place. That is a small little platform.

Oh Caden! My Caden was the same way! Always climbing around! Thank goodness for the monkey bars in the back yard!

He just wanted to be big like daddy! ;O)
