Oreo has recently started to walk alongside the rail that separates our play room upstairs from the family room downstairs. Yes, along the rail a good 15 feet in the air.

I questioned the safety of it. I worried that it would teach the girls, especially S, bad habits.

Well, I was right. Friday night Oreo fell from the ledge into the family room below. She landed on her feet. My heart skipped a beat.

She seems to be fine. I haven't seen her up there since. At least she's a fast learner.

Now if she would just learn not to crawl inside backpacks. Yesterday morning, G came into the kitchen carrying a see-through bag with Oreo zipped inside. G was pleased. Oreo was not.
