Izaiah, our now 2 year old was 14 months when it happened. I was way pregnant and a sweet friend arrived unexpected at the door to deliver cupcakes. I ran downstairs, answered the door and shortly after heard a blood curdling scream.
After turning around and seeing Izaiah half way down the stairs I went into a state of panic. Fortunately, the scream was from our 6 year old who had witnessed the events. Izaiah had tumbled down the stairs and landed on the landing. Fortunately, our stairs go – 10 steps – landing and then 10 more steps. He had rolled smack down the top 10 steps because I had forgotten to close the baby gate at the top of the stairs in my rush to answer the door. #MommyFail
Thankfully Izaiah was fine, just a few bruises. It’s amazing how cupcakes make everything better. Knowing that we would soon have 2 young kids, stair safety instantly became a priority after his tumble. Here is how we keep it safe with the stairs and toddlers.
