We got 3 mylar balloons for my DD Birthday. A few days after, they started to poop out. She was playing with one the whole day & it was bobbing up & down no higher than waist height (you know when they lose air & get slightly deflated?). She was loving that balloon so much. We had two more that were more inflated but she had her sights set on the star one. So when the two kids went to bed, I sat in the den with my DH watching TV & remember thinking, this is a bit distracting with these balloons. All the 3 balloons were in the den.
Next morning she woke & called me & when I walked into her room my heart stopped a beat. There she was in her crib holding her favorite star balloon.
Now my house is like a center hall colonial with the den in the back of the house. Then my staircase is in the front of the house & goes up to a landing then you turn to go up another set of stairs to the hall. So this balloon which did not elevate higher than my waist since it was deflated, made it's way out of the den into the liviing room, up the stairs, turned a corner, went down a hall, into her room then into her crib?
I have a gate at the top of the staircase too that it had to go over. Now my Son didn't bring it up since he can't open the gate at the top to come down on his own, the balloon was there in the den when me & DH went to bed. It was also a dangerous thing because what if the balloon cord wrapped around her while she slept? The other two balloons remained in the den.
When I saw her all smiles holding that balloon in her crib, I got a chill!
So, how do you think it got to her?
