PERFECT PARENTING: TODDLER-PROOFING.
TGIF! Grateful that it is the weekend, especially after an eventful evening last night in our house. Our very own Little Miss Lillian locked herself in her bedroom!! And yes, Jesse had to break down the door. I felt like I was on an episode of Rescue 911 (such a classic growing up)!
Everyone is safe and there isn't too much damage to the door (thank goodness for older San Francisco homes being made with wood that over the years has gotten softer!!). The whole thing actually happened perfectly. Lillian ran into her room and closed the door, like she always does, but this time somehow managed to twist the lock on the knob. I was in the kitchen cooking dinner and went to go get her and couldn't open the door. I thought it was difficult from my slippery hands from cooking. Jesse walked in the house two minutes later from work and when he tried opening the door and couldn't I knew something was up.
We stayed very calm because we knew her room was safe and luckily Jesse kicked down the door within five minutes! Needless to say, we will be toddler-proofing our house asap. Jesse and I make a good team and always turn stressful situations into teamwork successes! I know a lot of people think when you become a parent all of the excitement is gone from your life and I just want to let you know we have found the opposite to be true!
It reminds me of when I was growing up my parents (mostly my dad) called me Destructo Baby because I would get into everything and break everything. All I can say is that we are grateful Lillian is fine and cannot wait to see what she does as she grows up!
Have a great weekend!
