Pineapple used to tell me how she was going to fly out of her bedroom window
and up into the sky
to be with Santa Clause
on his sleigh by the moon.
She figured out how to unlock and open her window and....
when everyone was going to bed....
She jumped out.
We are on the 5th floor of a high rise....
Luckily we have a little deck on the side of that part of the house that caught her fall.
We discovered her knocking on the outside door of the small side balcony that no one uses.
She wasn't hurt.
But the worrisome thing is that all of the windows around our apartment unlock the same way-
and if she tries flying out another window there will be no balcony to catch her.
Perhaps she knew that the little balcony would catch her.
I hope so.
You never know what her imaginary Santa
might be telling her to do.
Any advice? Besides move all furniture away from the windows?
