I remember the day before Ella turned two. And she ran out in to a busy road. Thankfully, nothing happened, the traffic stopped, but it took me a while to calm down. I blogged about it (you can read the post here) and it really helped me to get over what happened, getting it down in writing.
Yesterday, something happened that I similarly feel the need to release as it is playing on my mind A LOT!
In our old house, we never bothered with stair gates when Ella was a little explorer. The stairs were in our lounge area, so we could pretty much see when she was heading up. And, until we thought she was confident enough, we would go up with her, holding her hand or standing behind her ready to catch. We didn’t have a stair gate at the top either. It just wouldn’t fit on our banister. She was soon great at coming down on her bum too. And she never fell.
