Today I am thankful that my little girl is tough. We have a friction fit type gate at the top of the stairs. well today she pushed it hard enough to move it out of place. She then took a tumble down the stairs. Melanie and I both went running to get her. I got there first and carried her to our bed where Melanie looked her over to find nothing wrong. She stopped crying when we gave her the remote for the TV.
So now the gate is screwed to the wall on hinges. It does not look very nice, but it will stop her from falling down the stairs again.
