As a homeschooling mom, I try to make sure we learn at least 1 thing per day. Today I learned that my refrigerator has a “Lock” control on it.


I learned this after my 4 yr old came running in yelling “Mommy, Mommy! Your baby’s in the water!” Apparently she’s figured out how to scoot, stack and climb her way to just about anything. And today it was a kitchen chair right over to the refrigerator where she proceeded to drench herself, and my kitchen, with a nice stream of cold fridge water.

It hasn’t ended there, she’s found the fruit bowl, yesterday she scooted her chair over to the fruit, snatched an apple, took a bite, looked up, saw me, and took off running and squealing. Today it was an orange…she spit out the peel after taking a bite though, guess it didn’t taste so good. Looks like she’s after a Kiwi this time…


Since then I’ve caught her here:


and here…

and here…ugh, always here! What is it with the snack cabinet?

and here…but I suppose I can’t complain if she’s doin’ a little math.


And at least once a day she tries this again…but I’ve wised up to her antics.

And the lock’s on baby.

  1. When my Analeigh started walking at a year she learned to climb really well right away. We ended up having to make the boy's bunk beds into two beds because she could climb the latter so fast and be up on the top bunk before we even knew she was out of the room. I couldn't spend my day chasing her out of their room (she also did door knobs really early) so even closing the door didn't help and I was afraid she would fall off the top bunk and break her neck or arm or leg or something. She has always been into every thing. These photos made me laugh so hard-she just turned 2 and is still that way. She gets out of her bed now-so we went to toddler bed-at least she won't her herself that way.Cute photos-thanks for sharing.Happy Mother's Day!Jill

  2. I have 5 daughters -16, 14, 10, 4, and 2. I know how frustrating this is for mama, but she is soooo cute!! 3 of mine have been similarly "resourceful" – One of them being my 16 year old. She has always been a challenge, but i'm proud to say she is smart, independent, and confident = must have skills for the world today! I am now able to look back at pictures like this, giggle fondly, and admire their "cuteness".

  3. How adorable!! I have a 2 year old in my child care who is climbing everything as well. She also has no fear, and a high pain tolerance, so she should be a real joy by the time she is 4! It is so hard to correct them at this age though because they are so cute when they are doing these things.Thanks for sharing the pics!

  4. My tiny tot figured out the chair trick a few weeks ago and she's been into things ever since. She's going to give her poor daddy a heart attack with all her toddlerness. Your pictures made me laugh and reminded me of mine.
