I've always been fairly certain that the small child living with us is part monkey.
Almost a year ago he learned how to pull himself up to standing by holding onto the couch. Since then his goal has been to scale Mount Couch and reach the Wili Stronghold, accomplishing his ultimate goal: leaving no safe place in the house safe for the cat to nap in peace.
Mission accomplished. Next mission, should he choose to accept it: Stacking toys and other objects that aren't nailed down in a make-shift ladder to escape the confines of the living room via scaling the baby gate. Stay tuned.
