My 10 month old keeps 'legging it' PMSL

Imagine she's doing something she shouldn't, like crawling towards the open stairgate, or grabbing hold of a newspaper and ruining it

I heave my ol' carcass off the couch

She sees me, normally out of the corner of her eye

And legs it in the opposite direction, huffing and puffing, grinning manically and squealing in her excitement to get away

Its the funniest thing

I'm raising a child with no morals here aren't I?

Lol Katie is exactly the same!!
Thing is she gets really peed off if I don't get up to sort her out!!

My dd (1 yr) is the same. There isn't anything she doesn't try to do and if I try to catch her, she crawls away thinking it's hilarious which it is.
My boys weren't like this from what I remember. Just wanted to ask if your dd has taking to climbing anything that is high and dangerous yet, because so far I have found dd on the dining room table and on the desk and the windowsill.
It's cute when they are cheeky

Katie climbs on the dining room table
And the edge of the sofa is by the window, Luckily we have window catches coz she can now open windows, She shouts for the cats to come in

I remember trying to tell dd off for climbing on the dining room table (she must have been a bit older than yours), and she looked at me and said "I'm a pickle, aren't I?". Very cute, very funny, and impossible to reprimand.

can't wait for my dd to say something cute and funny
I'm always laughing whilst I'm chasing her because its just sooo cute

Katie is 21 months old
I have got to the stage where I just put a cushion on the floor when she climbs all over the sofa!! Easier than telling her to get down 20 odd times!!

It is difficult when we go to the park though coz she wants to climb the big climbing frame like her sisters and so I spend the whole time with my hands in the air guiding her!!

My DD does this too! Except she is a bumshuffler and 'legs it'!! She is soo speedy sometimes that her whole body actually leaves the ground as she is going along .... PMSL

The DTs do this as well, only they go in opposite directions and I have a split second to decide which way to run. lol They do the same to their older siblings too. You can just see the glint in their eyes.

I remember when my twins were this age and used to go in different directions!!!

<<sigh>> at lovely stories

I don't remember DS being so cheeky

I'm really scared I'll forget how DD was too in a couple of years (despite the photos /film)

oh it goes by so very quickly <<maudlin moment>>
