We store the bunk bed ladder on the top bunk during the day. It eliminates my need to drag the kids down when it's time to wash hands, eat lunch or have lessons. I also don't have to worry about First Daughter climbing up there during her nap time. (First Son is under strict instructions to call us if she tries to climb up at night while he's in it.) I figured it couldn't hurt to keep it out of Second Daughter's reach, too. I didn't want her practicing too much.
I never imagined she'd be able to climb it.
Yeah. All the way to the top. Tonight, just before bed (when it was down so First Son could get in).
Need I remind you she is not yet 14 months old? She's barely walking!
