Tuesday's Tribute

Tuesday's Tribute
A Jay and Deb Production.

Introducing a wonderful, terrific piece of work.

Introducing a lifesaver.

Introducing number 4 on my list of "Best Inventions Ever".

The..............Baby Gate.

Yes, my friends, today I am dedicating my post to Mr. Gate. He has allowed me to breathe a sigh of relief every day as I lock my 9 month old in her play area and not worry about her finding my plants, going through my cupboards and........*cough*....finding the stairs thinking "I wonder what would happen if I went down those".

Being the wonderful mother that I am, the above has never happened. Not even when I went to feed the dog and came back to the stairs to find Princess putting her hands over the first step with a smile on her face. A good mother would never let that happen. A good mother would catch her before she went thumpety thump down those stairs right?

Thank you Mr. Gate. You have made life much easier on a wonderful mom like myself.

Love your creativity!!

The gates are great! Great gate. Oh, I'm having way too much fun with those two words. It's a nice idea to pay hommage to "ordinary" things that make life so much better.
