Fun With the Chandelier

Kids will find ways to scare that you would never have thought of in a million years. Adults look at a light fixture and see illumination. This little girl saw an opportunity. 
After converting my twins’ cribs to 'big girl beds', I quickly realized it was a mistake. I could hear a noise coming from the girls’ nursery during their nap time so I pulled up my Arlo Security app and realized one of my twins, Elise, was swinging from the chandelier. Thankfully she wasn’t hurt but the chandelier was immediately removed. This is just one, of many, reasons why I can’t have nice things anymore. My girls still ask for their chandelier but I’d be willing to bet their reason isn’t for utility.
Were you waiting for that fixture to "untwist" and swing her around like a ceiling fan? I was. (via Digg)

She's going to grow up to be a swashbuckler.

She's got pretty good balance.

The direction she was turning (counter-clockwise), if that chandelier was going to do anything, it should have fastened itself better into the ceiling. Righty-tighty, lefty-loosey, remember?
