The Forbidden Stairs

The Forbidden Stairs
by Michaela Byrd, age 13 months


Forbidden Stairs, your carpeted levels
Beckon me like a siren as I pause my play.
The danger lurking in your shadowed heights
Dares me to climb ever higher as I hear Her calling my name insistently.
Footsteps tap across the Kitchen linoleum as She seeks to end my adventure.
I stifle a giggle as I find delightful treasures hidden on step six:
Lint and Dog hair!
I know not what sort of magic awaits at your summit;
I only know I must reach it soon. I scale more quickly--
Drat! Forceful hands tear me from my climb. Flailing arms and legs, I screech in desperation.
We are separated by the impenetrable gate, Stairway to Heaven.
I mourn for a moment before turning to DogWater for solace.

first of all, the answer to the dreaded carrot cake recipe is to make it when you are going somewhere and need a "gotcha" recipe. Especially when you need someone to do that which pleases you.....um, to get your way, um....you know what I mean. they will follow you anywhere! :) And you won't be faced with the whole *&#* cake!!!!
Secondly, MB's writing has certainly improved and she is wise beyond her years!!! :) So, so cute....

You are so creative. You should print this out and put it in MB's baby book. She'll get a kick out of it one day.
