I have, however, in my pursuit of developmental progress and Eriksonian toddler conflict mastery (autonomy vs shame and doubt) caused myself some trouble.
I had great visions of the stool enabling great handwashing in the bathroom, and also getting my sons up to the perfect height to help wash dishes and prepare dinners.
This stool is an enabler all right, only for all the wrong things. Brazen autonomy is what it inspires! It is an accomplice to cookie thievery, an accessory to cleaning out the candy stash in the name of a "potty treat", and a cohort in crime for getting down the golf club you used to whack your brother earlier in the day which got stashed on top of the fridge to prevent further violence. So Maria, I think you led me astray.
