Climb Ev'ry Mountain..uh, Staircase!

Luke: In the kitchen, playing contentedly with fridge magnets and mixing spoons.

Matthew: In bed, not so much with the contented, reading books and not sleeping.

Mummy: Marching back and forth between the playroom, tossing toys into any available container and her bedroom, folding a never-ending pile of laundry.

Luke: Thump! Whack! "Ga-ga-da-mmmmmaaaaaaammmaaa!" Thump-thump!

Matthew: "Outside, inside, inside down!" (Berenstain Bears)

Mummy: "Tra la, la!" Folding, tossing, marching. Folding, tossing, marching.

Luke: Thud! "!" Thump.

Mummy: Hmmm...wonder what Luke's doing? March into kitchen.

No Luke.

Whirl around...check under table.

Nope. No Luke.

Luke: "Ga! Waaahhhh!!!"

From the TOP OF THE STAIRS!!!!!!!!!!

Omigod, my heart. It stopped.

Note to self: Luke climbs stairs. You idiot.
