So, we bought the new gate. That's $60 I will never be able to use on shoes or pedicures!
It is 36 inches tall and has only vertical bars, nothing horizontal except at the top and bottom. Now, since this is 3 inches taller than my precious little monkey, and has no center cross bar (which all good children know is the secret to climbing things!), we are relatively confident that she can't climb over this one.
We even tested it with the stool she uses to climb in and out of bed... still way tall!
This is a good thing, naps will now of course return because I have safely locked my child into her room! Right??????
In MY dreams!
