Problem Solved

Dillan has been climbing the stairs now for a few weeks. We have a gate at the top of the stairs, but he has decided that he just likes to play on the stairs and he can't climb down them yet. Jeremy put a chair at the bottom of the stairs to detour Dillan from climbing them. It worked for a few days but then we had a problem. Dillan has figured out that just because something large is in the way doesn't mean you can't go through it. He crawls through the smallest spaces now. Jeremy had put the chair down and a little while later he heard patting on the stairs. He jumped up and realized that Dillan had crawled through the legs of the chair and was already a few stairs up happily playing. Now the toy chest stays at the bottom of the stairs. No holes in that!
