Project 366 Day 26 of One Photo A Day

My boys do not look at gates at deterrents. Nope, a gate is just another toy to be played with. After all, there is an unlimited amount of entertainment to be found in a safety gate...

Only my children. Or maybe not, maybe your kids do (did) this too. My children see a gate and immediately go to it to see what they are being kept from.  When the gate goes up it is the signal that there is something that they are not supposed to be into, so they are drawn like ants to a picnic to find out what could possibly be on the other side of the safety gate.

Once the other side of the gate has been discovered they look for ways to interact with the gate. A game of peek-a-boo usually ensues if mom or dad is on the opposite side. My nine month old uses the gate as an aide for standing and walking. He pulls himself up by the bars and starts talking and walking to his little hearts content. I mean really, what is there not to be entertained by with a gate?

If the gate is not put up it becomes something fun to crawl on. Like a little obstacle course made just for them. My kids keep finding fun new ways to engage with their safety gates. As fun as it is for them to play with the gates, it is equally entertaining for me to watch.
