This very well may be the most boring photo I ever post.
But I had to have a picture with this story. Jansen was in his room having quiet time and I had set up the gate (which he has never really cared about) so that he could not just leave whenever he wanted to. I'm trying to teach him to play on his own more. I heard some banging and pounding coming from his room---somewhat typical noises for a 2 year old playing. When I came upstairs to check on him I found this:
Somehow he had removed the gate from his doorway. Then he propped it up against the wall. Returned to his room. Shut the door. Apparently he's too grown up for "baby" gates.
