I may not be out there at all this weekend. Evelyn is coming down with something so I'm staying home with her till she's better. One of the things I hate most about one of my kids getting sick is it's usually only a matter of time before it spreads throughout the whole house and wipes us all out, sometimes more than once because by the time the first person is getting over it the last person is just coming down with it and gives it back to person number one and here we go again! Not much fun. Anyway, I figure I'll post while I still have a chance.
Today I'd like to talk about the ladder stairs. We haven't decided on the particular look we want yet so I've been scouring the Internet for ideas. Here's an interesting one. It doesn't take up much more space than a ladder but I'm afraid I would become dizzy or confused just looking at them and wind up in a pile of broken bones at the bottom.
I like that these stairs have a hand rail, but the alternating steps might be difficult for a small child to navigate.
Here are some that are similar but simpler.
I'd have to say, these are my favorite. I love the color of the wood and the depth of the treads and the little slots for your hands. Yeah, this might be exactly what I want.
However, anything would be better than the ladder we've been using. It's just plain scary!
