I Need a Solution

No, no, I'm not talking about a solution for Kiki's hair. Some days we just let her go with the wild look because that's just what we do. The problem is Dan and Kiki are relentless in their attempts to climb onto the coffee table. After pulling them down about 53 times in a row, I usually give up and flip the table over. But that is never easy because they're always clamoring to get back on while I'm trying to turn it over. Telling them "no" or distracting them with something else only works part of the time.

So far the babies are definitely winning this one.

I have a monkey too. I've discovered she is part cat and always lands right side up. This has helped me relax a little with the leaping off the couch and climbing on the table. I can't give you advice on how to win. But just think of how those fine motor skills are developing!

I meant "large" motor skills.

Why cant they climb on it? Or you could just get rid of the coffee table, get a little side table instead, or move it against the wall/couch so its safe to climb on? Personally I would just let them climb on it, stay close to make sure they're safe, but they will soon get pretty adept at it anyway :)
