As they slowly learn how to fully utilize their environment, most kids try to figure out how to reach cookie jars or candy dishes. All my kid wants to do is eat every apple in the house in one sitting.
Miles recently discovered that, with the aid of the step stool he uses to reach the sink in the bathroom, he can also gain access to other things. Chief among them, the fruit basket.
