Important Discovery

Kaitlyn can lock/unlock the door.

Thankfully, this was discovered while I was in the room with her. She said, "Mommy, I locked the door!" I checked, and sure enough, she had locked it. Then I told her to unlock it, just to make sure she knew how to do that. She does, which is good news. Hopefully this means we won't have lock-herself-in-a-room-and-can't-get-out drama.

However.

The bad news is, she knows how to lock the door. And she's smart enough (and two enough) to think it would be funny to lock the garage door while Mommy steps out to the freezer for a second. Or to go into the bathroom, lock the door, and get into who-knows-what.

There are some milestones that leave you feeling extremely proud of your child. And then there are those that take your prayer life to a new level.

We have push button locks on our doors, so this has been A PAIN! Jack thinks it's funny to lock himself in his room and bathroom. He can get out, but he usually chooses to call us and giggle until we come. We have an old credit card that sits out constantly so that we can unlock the doors. Even though he ALWAYS gets a time out for it, he continues to do it. I'm ready to change out the doorknobs.

Isn't that funny that our Mom brains go that far with these situations before they even happen? :) And Dads wonder why we're always so exhausted...

Good luck. ;)
