No Hands

If I didn't already know it's a toothbrush, I'd guess Sabrina was holding a conductor's baton. Which would make me wrong, for maybe the first time ever. Oh it's a lonely world always being right about everything. But I find a way to struggle through it anyway.

Sabrina is so adorable these days, walking and talking and generally being ultra-charming. Today she had been awake for a few minutes when Mommy left the baby's room to get breakfast started. Sabrina played with me and Fred for a while and then headed toward the top of the stairs. Rather than run past her so I could get downstairs from her and catch her if she fell, I decided to stay behind her so she'd have to make the decision herself, and if she went for it I could grab her legs and stop her.

Then Fred walked between her and the top step, turned to her, and growled. He was protecting our little angel from a fall down the steps! Even better, Sabrina seemed to understand and stayed away. And even better than that, when she's about to do something she knows we don't want her to do, she now points at the offending obstacle/activity before she touches it and babbles gibberish at us as if to say "Can I?"

Best of all, when we say no, she doesn't dwell on it. What an amazing little girl.

I think it is time to purchase 5 treadmills and let Sabrina make a music video.... more praise on Right Said Fred! I always knew he would hit the big time with daring acts of heroism, protecting little ones from stairs and Ollie. Fred..... it's time to drag Dan off the front lines. I know you can do it!
