I returned the baby gate to the office doorway after a two-week experiment of having it removed. Rebecca simply couldn’t resist messing with the computer, the camera gear, the books, and other non-toddler-safe items in the office. I finally decided it was pointless to keep tempting her and then having to call her on it.[...]

She’s fine. As with most children, she’s ahead on some things, behind on others, and right on target with some.[...]
