Awhile ago (like December) I found this:
http://www.ana-white.com/2010/12/helping-tower.html I feel in love with the idea. So much safer than a stool. But Matthew was pretty little, so it wasn’t a huge hurry.
Fast forward to now. Matthew is not happy being on the floor while I am up high cooking, baking, or even cleaning. Matthew was also not happy when I stepped on him because he crawled under my feet.
Enter a rainy, gross weekend, and Nick’s day off. We have been on a getting the house put together kick, so the helper tower seemed a natural project. Two trips to Lowe’s, a few screws, a debate on whether we really needed to buy a jigsaw, and some wood later.
We had a tower. And my little boy loves it! Since he’s still a little unstable, we added the blanket for safety.
