Danger Scale: Pantry Raiders

Because we all know that nothing dangerous is ever left in the pantry. Who doesn't let their 13 month old climb in the pantry and rearrange it?

Aeralind and the Black Widow

It is the greatest fear of any parent that their child will meet a black widow. But what do you say when your daughter becomes one? The girls both love the Noodlebug series of videos, to the point of requesting the music dvd being played for their wake-up music. We thought life was good until Melissa took the girls for a walk and Aeralind spotted a "Noodlebug" on the ground. Rather than saying a nice "hello" she jumped on the bug with all her righteous fury yelling: "Die Noodlebug, Die." This has me concerned about any males that may decide to get close to her.... Or maybe it will be a good thing as far as suitor defense goes. For those interested, you can find the movies below:

Danger Scale: Tunnel Climbing

Don't most parents let their children climb on top of their play house? It is perfectly safe, isn't it?
(I actually was concerned about them doing this and only let them get up their for the shot.)

Princess Books

In a similar vein of my prior post on Children's books, this one also involves a Princess. Unlike the last one though, this one does not obfuscate the blueness found within. Once upon a cool motorcycle dude involves a boy and a girl sharing a fairy tale. The girl brings in the princess, who for once isn't attacked by a dragon, while the boy brings in the strong hero.

Really, the book is good and quite funny. I would encourage you to get and read the book to your children.

Danger Scale: Tunnel Diving

A good friend of Melissa's gave us a playset for the girls. For the longest time we had the tunnel flat to the ground for safety reasons. Last fall I decided that they were big enough so I moved the tunnel to its normal position. The below pictures are a montage of the first thing they did with their new tunnel. Yes, they really are going through it face first. What could possibly go wrong with the ensuing 2 foot drop face first onto solid ground.
