Well, my worst nightmare occurred this morning. Matt was feeding Austin while Jamie was sleeping when all of the sudden he hears, “I’m free! I’m free!” This voice sounds relatively much like Jamie’s.
Back story: our home has two levels. The upstairs landing overlooks the downstairs living room. We put a baby gate in front if Jamie’s bedroom door so that she can’t tie a sheet around her neck and fly down like Wonder Woman ala Boo.
Anyway, so Matt hears, “I’m free! I’m free!” and bolts upstairs. He sees Jamie has literally broken free of the baby gate by simply pushing it forward.
Uh….I call bullshit.
1) What kind of a stupid baby gate do we have that it can easily be moved by a toddler from the wrong end?
2) How is it my 2 year old already feels entrapment? I thought we had until at least middle school before she reveled at the thought of breaking “free” from us.
So, now my 25 month old knows Daddy has money and that breaking out of the room means she’s “free”. Now, what? I have no tricks in my pocket, people. I’m flying blind, here!
Looks like someone is getting a pony for Christmas….
What? Don’t act like you didn’t know I bribe small children.
