Now what are you climbing?

This parenting thing is really turning out to be trickier than I thought it was going to be. You can't turn your head for one second with Malaia now. People warned me too! Telling me how crazy it gets, once kids learn to walk... They weren't kiddin!
Her latest feat, is climbing on top of the toilet. Previously she was a little too short. But thanks to her latest growth spurt it's no problem. So if you turn your back for an instant, you turn back and there she is perched on the top of the toilet seat hands on the tank of the toilet.
The good news, is that we've had no choice but to keep the lid down on the toilet. (She's dipped one too many of our things into the toilet water.) So at least there is no chance of her going for a swim in our porcelain pool.
She hasn't slipped and fallen yet.. We seem to get to her just in time to divert any catastrophes.. She can however, reach the medicine cabinet that is mounted above the upstairs bathroom.. so now we have to find homes for things such as razors and dental floss...
The joys of parenting, I signed up for it, so I guess I can't complain!
