How many of you have a Toddler...raise your hand???? lol Well, there was this door...which involved a little hand..and a lock.. well you get the picture. haha My son, who is 3 1/2, is quite well, sneaky... Often times, he will race me to a room and lock himself in before I get there.. and I usually stand there for about 30 secs.. giving out "threats" lol thru the door.. Things like "Open the door right now, or no more 'Max & Ruby' (Cartoons)" And slowly I'll hear him unlocking the handle, and the door knob starts to turn..and wal lah I grab the door handle and whip the door open lol But a couple of days ago, he decides to lock our bedroom and pull the door closed behind him. At the moment, I was holding my 5 month old baby girl and was in midstride to put her down for a nap, when I caught out of the corner of my eye his NAUGHTY, SNEAKY little deed. He comes running over.. "Mom, I locked your door" just like that. Like this was perfectly normal!!! So, I'll skip the part where I felt my blood pump like a mac truck was racing thru my veins, and a panic in my heart thinking what in the world am I going to do.. I will be honest all I kept thinking about was how they did it on the movies.. You know, take a running start and knock the door down.. thankfully I reconsidered lol. Longgggggggggggggggggggggggggg, story short is..I had to find my husband's TOOLS and take the door handle off (while my son stood by snickering)and replaced it with a new one (my husband keeps spare things like brand new door handles for some reason lol)that had a KEY!!!!
So the moral of this story is... Don't have door handles with locks that you can't OPEN from the otherside!
