Dear Brooklyn,

I took the ottoman away from the stairs today.

At first you kept peeking around the corner like you couldn't believe there was nothing stopping you from going down.

Then you started to inch your way backwards toward stairs.

You thought you were being pretty sneaky.

Then you sat down.

And then turned toward the stairs and gave me a look like "What? I do this all the time?"

Then one last "I'm so cute and innocent" look and...

you were off!

Then you giggled all the way down like you just pulled off the best trick in the book.

You are too cute.

Sincerely, Lori
