N clambers up the stairs

I know this one calls for a pic – I’m such an idiot. N actually started going up the stairs today, encouraged by Appapappa. He left her at the bottom of the stairs, I was the bait at the top, and then we both watched as she scrambled over one step and then the other. Oh god, now I’ve got to watch the stairs too!! I’m such a paranoid Mom, I think secretly. Every time N does something new – i enjoy it, and at the same time I am thinking, now that she has learnt this new thing it can harm her in so and so way and i have to watch out more etc. etc.

A colleague in office, father of two, commented today – your worries for your kids never go away. They just change. How true.

Here’s to a lifetime of it.
