Mama was busy in the kitchen preparing food for the next day, doing dishes etc. while listening to Madison play in the next room. It was then quiet for a few minutes so Mama went looking for Madison. Madison was no where to be found. Finally a loud “Hi! ” filled the room and Mama noticed Madison on the stairs. She was not the usual 2-3 steps up on her own….she was 10 steps up (halfway up the stairs) all by herself! There were mixed emotions of proudness and excitment but Mama was also terrified as Madi could have tumbled down the stairs too. We were so proud of her courage and determination and confidence to do it all on her own. We’ve now realized the stairs are fair game in her mind so they have to be watched.
