Sign her up for gymnastics. I hear they start em young! When one of my boys was an itty bitty dude, he thought his walker was a bobsled and went down the stairs the fast way. Took a bad line through the turn 1/2 way down and ended up on his head. That'll teach em about apex's and centrifugal force, huh?!

One of my grandsons has; Driven his mother's car by rolling it down the driveway and across the street.(She about beat him up) Cut himself shaving. Blew a receptical off the wall by dropping a coin onto the partially unplugged cord. Climbed up to stand on the top rail of his playpen so he could look out the front window.We weren't in the room with him and didn't know what he was doing until we heard him hollering for help because he couldn't get down. Now the kicker;All this before he was 3.
We must have it kinda easy...I'll make sure the wifey reads these.

Somebody said that the reason kids are cute is so that you won't kill them. And a friend confided to me that a parent's main job is to keep kids from killing themselves until they learn good sense.
A few days ago while my wife was taking a shower, our 17-month-old daughter climbed onto the bathroom vanity by way of the toilet. When my wife found her, she was standing on the vanity, scribbling on the mirror with a crayon -- washable, luckily -- happily oblivious to the risk of falling on a tile floor.
Weights might slow her down for a while; however, in the end they'll only make her stronger.
Thanks for the suggestions. My wife especially liked the duct tape one.
My goodness, Hugh. I shudder to think that we have fifteen more months to try to match that. The latest:
About twenty minutes ago, we found her in the living room, a deep crimson red around her mouth, her hands, and on her shirt. I checked her mouth, but she wasn't bleeding from there. My wife was panicking a bit. I started to wipe it off with my hand (Drool helped considerably.). As it dried, I rubbed it a little between my fingers as I was looking for the source. It didn't feel right. Then I found a red crayon with no paper, but with teeth marks....
