Friday Fun Spot: Hudson Climbing

Hudson is all boy. He loves to climb. If I’m on the floor, I’m his playscape. If I’m not on the floor, he’ll traverse the furniture. Of course I think his gross motor skills are amazing, but I’m his momma.

Early last month when I noticed it was a bit too quiet for comfort in the living room, I caught Hudson doing this. We are slowing losing furniture in our house but I refuse to lose the couch.  Instead I moved the table. That’s a fair compromise.

Notice at the end how dangerous it could have been if I wasn’t there. He almost knocked Ellisa off! That morning I moved the table he was climbing up and rearranged the furniture once again. Sorry Hud.

A note on discipline: Yes, I could teach my kids not to climb on furniture BUT 1) it’s so good for their bodies and minds 2) they’re kids–that’s what they’re supposed to do 3) I think they’re simply too young to deny them of this pleasure–it seems cruel and 4) I can’t watch them every second and I’m not about to say “no” when I see it but allow it when I don’t see it. I’ll probably kick myself when they’re climbing friends furniture at age 5 but I’ll cross that hurdle when I get to it.

    May I remind you, we climbed some ridiculously high trees and other things when we were kids! Can’t get over how big they’re getting! They are SO SO darned adorable!
