They Call Me Ankle Buster

By MadelinePetersen |

Hi, Tate here. A few weeks ago a family friend gave me a walker. And it’s awesome.

I run around the kitchen when Mom is making dinner and ram the back of her chair while she is working at the dining table. I get to run wild in the garage while she is doing laundry. I get to eat while doing it if I play my cards right.

But my favorite part of the walker? It’s got to be that if I want someone’s attention, all I need is a running start and a clear shot at their ankles. When I make impact, there is no ignoring me.

Yeah, they call me ankle buster. I’m thinking I need to get a bumper sticker on my new ride.

PS – If you like my bib, have your mom make you one with this easy tutorial.

    Oh my goodness! You wouldn’t believe I plan on getting a walker tomorrow. I’ll have to bandage my ankles in advance.

    AWESOME Post. Love it. And I totally feel your pain. Been there. But I do love walkers because of how much fun they have. Currently my problem is the 18 month old that likes to get between me and the cupboards while I cook dinner and SHOVE. Because I can’t possibly feed him fast enough. Or enough, period. :-D
