Fun times

Ever since we moved into this house almost a year ago the kids have been fascinated with the stairs.  This is the first house out of four that we've lived that wasn't a ranch. The kids feel like we scored a never ending carnival ride with the purchase of this house.  

I've caught them riding the stairs on a twin mattress, cardboard, laundry baskets, winter sleds, sleeping bags, and of course their own bodies.  They just pull on a pair of slippery shorts or pants and they have their own indoor slide - no money or tickets necessary.  That is until one of the rides turns into a trip to the ER.  But fortunately that has not happened - yet.  With 3 boys I am sure it's bound to occur sooner or later.  

It's funny to watch how entertained they can be with a simple house feature like a staircase.  

Kids must be oblivious to rug burn.  


  1. We had stairs in our house growing up and they were soooo much fun to slide down! (There were four of us) But then my mom decided to rip up the carpeting to re-do the wallpaper. That meant we had those awful strips of carpet tacks on every step. VERY quickly, we all learned to step only on the first 3 inches or so of the stairs so as to avoid the tacks. It took our friends coming over a little bit longer! That wallpaper project took approximately TWO YEARS to complete! Ah, the good ol' days when parents really didn't care all that much!

  2. Ouchie!
