I would like to tell everyone that this is a bad joke but it’s not . English is not my first language so excuse me for any spelling mistakes
I (33M) have been married to my wife (28F) for almost 8 years now. We’ve always had our ups and downs but today was our breaking point. We have an old house built in 1955 that we renovated step by step. One of the remnants of it’s post WWII era , is it’s small steps. It is nothing to cause concern but everyone always needs to tread carefull not to misstep because it could cause you to trip.

Cue a half year later our 6 year tells me “ mommy does dangerous stuff by putting all these things on the staircase”. This woke me up and i beg and plead again not to do it because even our daughter thinks this is dangerous. I tried multiple times taking clothes away but she did it again time and time again. The inevitable happens and our 6 year old tumbles down the stairs. I run up and thank god she is okay. I check her up and she said “ mommy really shouldn’t be putting clothes there”. After this i actually cried and pleaded to please stop doing this. This helped for about a week and she did it again. I started brushing it off because i knew she wasn’t going to change.
