He kindly pulled down all the books for me this morning. I managed to clear the bottom shelf where I now keep his toys but I just don't have anymore space anywhere! What do other people do - can you stop them from doing it or is it a lost cause?

My DD used to do this, it drove me mad! I put the book case which was only three shelves high behind the sofa until she grew out of the habit.

Ours is a big one so it won't go anywhere else. Our house is stupidly small with no storage space - why do they make houses like this?! I always knew it was small but no idea how small until DS came along!

I just let DS get on with it. He does it less now, I moved anything 'precious' though. It only gets worse, he climbs on a chair arm to reach the mantlepiece now - nowhere is safe, sigh!
