Banned From My Bookshelf

This is the sort of thing I never want to find on a bookshelf ever again.


What is the one-year-old doing on the bookshelf? Where are all the books that go on that shelf?

As far as I can tell, this is a #APDfail. Eldest has APD (audio processing disorder), which means her brain doesn't always translate verbal language well, and she has a tendency to be painfully literal. Not to mention she's eight and has the attention span of a gnat on crack.

So when she started screaming "it" was in the way and she couldn't vacuum because "it" was there I thought "it" was a book or toy, not her little brother!

She put "it" up on the shelf so she could vacuum, but was distracted by something shiny and the next thing I new there was a confused screeching from the back room because "it" was stuck.

Poor baby boy!

Now he thinks all bookcases are for climbing, and you can only guess where that sort of trouble will lead. Now, seriously, where are the books that go there? A well-stocked bookcase shouldn't have gaps big enough for stuffing little brothers. Maybe I should take Eldest book shopping...

  1. Oh no! At least you know that your bookshelf is very sturdy. This one anyway. Here's to hoping that he won't test any others.

  2. Aww, it looks like somebody knows he's in trouble...

    Just remember, it could have been a bag of sugar. :)
