"When is a door not a door?"

There's a closet in Kit's room that we use for storing winter coats and things. They've never seen it open. Today X was holding them and opened the closet.

Kit: 😮

They spent the next several minutes looking around the room like "What the fuck ELSE is a door? Are there magic portals just fucking everywhere? Have you been keeping this from me this entire time?"

They looked at the ceiling. "Is THAT a door?"

X, helpfully: "Well, actually that part there slides open so you can get to the attic--"

Kit: 😮


J comes in. We explain what happened. Kit is still looking around, astonished and suspicious.

J: "Aw, they're looking at the ceiling wondering if there's a door there too. Actually, there is the entrance to the attic--"


Kit: 😮

Many things about fairy tales, Narnia, and the TARDIS suddenly become clear.

Oh! Baby!

This is delightful, and I hope Kit isn't too traumatized.

I can't see the gif, but I can guess the sort of thing.

Ha. Our dog's reaction when she finally figured out how to climb our stairs was similar :-D

I think the most fun our boys ever had on holiday was when they were 24 and 20 months, stairs and doors were still entertaining, and they spent a week in our 3-storey holiday cottage climbing in and out of different cupboards! The 'peekaboo' stage goes on for years.

Actually even now when the kids have friends over, I know i will find them all in the long, crawl-height only cupboards in the loft, every time.
