Scary

Today's PhotoHunt theme is "scary," and Mommy was wishing she had a photo of me "shaving" myself with Daddy's razor using toilet water. I don't know what's so scary about that. I watch Daddy do it and I know exactly what I'm doing. Though Daddy says to make sure people know he uses sink water and not toilet water.

Since we don't have a photo of that, here is a photo of our stairs. They don't look so scary to me, but Mommy says it could be very dangerous if I fell off the top. So we always have to make sure the stair gates are closed, and I have to hold someone's hand whenever I go up or down the stairs.

Those are beautiful, but definitely scary when you have a little one!

Wow, those are some stairs! I would say they're scary too.

I can understand why mom finds these scary.

Brynna said...

Ooh, definitely scary for little ones...but they are beautiful though!!

Love the shaving story. My 2.5 year old daughter's chin just healed up from having been red and sore for a week after she tried shaving, too!

As clumsy as I am... glad these stairs are not in my house. Tony would get tired of holding my hand and makig sure I didn't fall...yep total klutz.

The thought of your little girl shaving herself with toilet water made me smile...although the few times that Savannah has found my razor and tried to shave her legs, I freaked out, so I know how scary it is!

Love your stairs!

Pam said...

I can see why those would be scarey to mom ;) thanks for the giggle- the toilet water shaving imagine in my mind is priceless!

Yes they do look scary! When my youngest was little we put her in one of the old "now extinct" walkers. And here is why they are extinct...she fell down one step in it from the kitchen to the utility room.....twice. The second time I threw it away! She was not injured but was bumped and bruised.

I watched a segment of 60 minutes tonight about Greg Carr and his work in restoring the Gorongosa National Park. I was impressed with his humanitarian efforts. I know you and your family do the same work and I just felt the need to say Thank You & I admire your efforts.

Oh wow!! For real, those are indeed scary. I am glad this Grammy does not have to use those stairs. Be careful sweet girl.

Andrea said...

Oh yeah...I think I'd find those stairs scary too...for little ones, and for me! I've been known for falling down stairs!

One Mom said...

slippery, twisting, steep stairs...I'm scared, but I have a thing about falling down stairs anyway! Esme would probably fare better!

Debra said...

Yikes! I agree with Mommy on that one Esme!

Kori said...

Yikes; people who build stairs like that must be childless. Esme, they are scary for this mommmy, too, and Owen's grandma has a set!

DysFUNctional Mom said...

Both of these things are scary to me. Be careful, Esme!
