Grace has a certain height that she likes to stay below, and if she happens to cross that height threshold her eyes go wide and she wants to come down again. The height is around about the top step of our ladder, but the same goes for trees and other things you may climb.
Grace wanted to help me clean some leaves out of the gutters, but to reach the gutter she was going to need to stand right on top of the ladder and this presented a challenge, especially seen as she really wanted to help.
Getting up to that top step took a bit of time, with Grace asking questions like,
- What if I fall?
- What if the ladder breaks?
- What if the wind blows the ladder over?
Grace did get to the top though. It look a few rounds of things, but eventually she was brave, overcame her fear, had fun cleaning out the leaves……and made it back down again!
