With steps as high as their knees, how do toddlers get up them?

I’m sure I couldn’t climb a step as high as my knees.
I think I went numb when I was a toddler.

Surprised J. there’s a limit to how much I can accept your optimism.
But then, maybe I was trying to climb them like a grown-up. A lack of creativity.

Opps… sorry Chordy. I’ll try to keep the optimistic stories in check.

It’s just I’ve never seen a toddler climb stairs with out also using their elbows and tummy. Sort of wiggle worm up and then go back down backwards using their tummy and knees.

Toddlers are bendable…while they do use elbows and hands i have seen them stretch their whole leg up on stairs and pull themselves up… I could still do same… I climb up on a roof like that and its about at my knees when I go up the banked dirt piled against that part of the house… have to use my hands too though…

Well to me, it seems next to impossible and I wonder if it’s not the origin of hip replacements and knee surgeries that are so common. But maybe dwelling on the subject like I am is --lol.

And here we go !!! Wheeee !

Uh Oh…must watch out for this super leg stretch !

See they really do bend!!!

And not even the child gate can stop them !

Child gate FAILS!


LOL!!! That all looks familiar! Love those baby feet
