Do we breed climbers?

We have got 4 kids, 2 boys and 2 girls

All 4 of them climb...

And are really cheeky and proud of it! they are all small, adgile, flexible and rarely fall! (I can count on 1 hand how many times any of them have fallen- I think Ellise once and Lily once, not including when the chest of draws fell on top of the boys while they were climbing that!)
Everything has to be tried at least once, maybe more when mum isn't looking!

Is there any cure? Maybe any cure for the mothers who watch in fear while with 16 month old scales ladders and slides, to slide down, then run around and climb straight back up again!
And then the 4 year old who must have his photo taken while poking a face!

I so hear you!! Laila is forever giving my heart palpitations with her daredevil antics! She will climb up the ladder of the huge slide at the playground behind our house. I follow her up of course but she'd be quite happy to do it without me!

Just take a deap breath and look away Mum - they have survived this long. Healthy kids I would say - I know not as easy as it sounds and I probably should take some of my own advise!

Poppy use to live the climb and slide so much we use to call her Cannonball.
