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.
