Unbelievable! Amazing! I know I'd be freaking out if my daughter were climbing exposed sections (in the sense that I'm putting her in danger).. and I know I'd never forgive myself if anything happened to her.. I'm not sure how to reconcile that as a parent.

Wow! Great job Axel! I love the jewel hiding story! I'll have to use that on my little girl when she's older.

Wow, way to go, Axel!

Also, that jewel idea is amazing. I'll have to steal that idea when the day comes. A pack full of stuffed animals and rocks is well worth the memories you're making. Way to be an A+ dad.
