So Cruel

This is the "How could you do this to me look". Okay, so the look is actually because a few seconds earlier he had scaled half way up the gate and fell down and was pretty ticked about it. I was trying to get a picture of him climbing up the gate with his little toes in holes.
The gate is up because Benton has been banned from the kitchen while I am cooking. And this is for two reasons.

Reason #1: While my back was turned he pulled a stool up to the stove and climbed up and grabbed a burned that wasn't on, but was still a little hot from having been on recently. (Don't worry, it wasn't hot enough to actually burn him, just scared him.)

Reason #2: He really, and I mean REALLY likes to play with the lids to the Ziploc food containers while I'm cooking. It gives him something to do while I'm pretty much ignoring him. I also have some nice glass bowls that have lids for when you take them somewhere, which for me is fairly frequently. The lids to the glass bowls have gone missing and I'm sure they got thrown out as he has a propensity toward throwing things in the garbage. I have had to pull many a sippy cup out of the garbage. He thinks that that is where everything belong when he decides he is done with it.

Your boys and those burners! Kal has been banned from the kitchen for similar reasons. I just don't know how boys survive childhood without being completely maimed by all their climbing adventures. Benny's mad face is pretty cute!

My kiddos are still banned from the kitchen when I am cooking because they enjoy standing right behind me so every time I take a step back I almost tumble. They also enjoy taste testing a little to much.

Don't you wish there were buttons to turn on protective force fields around all the stuff/places you don't want your child to get into which usually ends up being the one thing they're attracted to? If only...

I wish they made a gate big enough to keep Isaac out of my kitchen. I have the exact same problem with baby dish items (sippys,etc.)and plastic containers going missing and in the garbage.

That is the cutest little face. If you get a picture with him climbing you should add it.
