Patience is a virtue, but I have no patience for keeping a one year old from going down off the porch. We’ve all learned that SAFETY is FIRST, and since the Lord helps those who help themselves, the best thing we’ve done so far to prepare for the warmer months…..was install baby gates across both porch entries. We had some trouble finding just the right gates and had to go on repeated trips to”Babies R Us”. But, the third time’s the charm, and now we can sit in our rocking chairs and let Seth play safely near us. The gates also keep the chickens from wandering around on the porch, dropping droppings. We’ve killed two birds with one stone, so to speak.
But of course, the grass is always greener on the other side.
