Nope, this post isn’t about the awesome movie starring Charles Bronson, it’s about my 15 month old. I’ve mentioned in the past that Henry is a bit reckless, well I’m changing it now to fearless. He’s just into climbing everything these days. He has this little play desk that he had started climbing recently and we kept having to tell him “Non! Descend!” well now he pushes the little desk up against our buffet so that he can climb and stand on his desk and reach for stuff on the buffet.

He’s also started climbing the sofa just to jump off it. He crumples to the ground, will lie there and, I’m guessing here, assessing if all his bones are intact and then gets up and does it again.

Yesterday we went to our friends Ross and Selena’s for their son Declan’s birthday and Henry kind of just climbed fully dressed into the blow up pool then climbed up this playstructure they have without a care in the world.

Do they make a drug for kids to feel fear? We bought Henry a helmet for when we go biking with him, I’m tempted to have him wear it all the time.


I’m going to try and wedge myself through these bars here… Just enough to get stuck and freak out.


I’m going to launch off this thing.


Ok, so I kind of helped him out a bit here but it was either that or let him climb Ginger on his own.




What’s the number for Children’s Aid again?


Does this helmet make my ears look big?
