Anyone else have a climber?

Anyone else have a climber that thinks anything and everything taller than her needs to be conquered? I mean EVERYTHING.

Also, is anyone else having issues with toys being used in ways they were not meant to be used?

If it can be used as a stool, its a stool. If it can be climbed on, its a ladder. If it can be flipped over, it gets flipped. If it can bend, it will get broken. If it can make marks on walls, it becomes a paint brush. If it can be bounced on, it becomes a trampoline. If it can be chewed, it gets eaten.

Anyone else have one like this? Mommy is going to end up prematurely gray!

Ugh yes! always putting everything in the mouth, still!

Do you ladies let them climb?

Figured I would mention this. Yesterday morning, after just waking up, I was sitting here at my desk, and she came in here and snatched a blue highlighter without my noticing. I heard a strange squeaking sound about 10 seconds later so I went to investigate. She had enough time to draw 3 nice sized circular scribbles on our main living room wall.

I try to be cautious of those types of things, but I left the highlighters out on my desk. I ended up having to repaint that whole wall yesterday afternoon!

I do. Mine likes to climb on Tables, most of his toys he takes apart then brings it to me to saying broke just so I can fix it and he re breaks it. He will also move his highchair around the kitchen and use it to climb on. He's almost 2 and he still puts stuff in his mouth from time time. I'm hoping he grows out of it soon.
