more than one way to skin a cat...

where did that saying come from? who wants to skin a cat? really?

i digress...

we have REALLY wide stairs at the bottom and there is nothing that blake loves more than to cruise over there and start going up them with avery yelling, "he's going up the stairs, he's going up the stairs..." i have her trained well to be the alarm.

there is no gate in my imagination or at a store that will fit these stairs, that i have discovered yet, so today i decided we would make do with what we had....

good thing the gigantic bench has more than one purpose!

i am not deluded enough to think that this will keep him out indefinitely but perhaps it will for today...and today is enough for now:)

How wide is it? I have a gate that's 5 feet wide that you could borrow. Think it might work?

It would take a big chunk of fabric, but what about making a quilt gate. I am envisioning a long piece with ties or ribbons with snaps or velcro that would roll up when you don't need it & attach to the railing post, then could be unrolled and attached to the other post when needed... just a thought.
