Sit down damnit!
Here is the most common thing heard around our house recently “Brynna, sit down. Brynna, down. BRYNNA, SIT DOWN! Thank you…Brynna, sit down! Arghhhhhh”
Brynna absolutely loves the armchair that Uncle Rus and Aunt Cara gave her for Christmas and will climb into and out of it at a dizzying rate. Thankfully we have the padded play mats under it or else we’d never have a stress free moment worrying that she’d try to come down head first again like she used to. Unfortunately, she has discovered that it is fun to stand in the chair and lean way back over the fireplace hearth to try to get our attention. When she does and we tell her to sit, she will do it grudgingly but will then immediately (and with a glimmer of menace in her eyes) stand back up all the while maintaining eye contact with us as if to say “try and stop me old man”. Its cute and infuriating all at the same time. I can’t help but wonder, if she’s like this at 11 months just imagine how much of a pain in the ass she’s going to be in another year. Please help us!
