We thought we had more time

There is something we haven't done in our household yet.


I know, I know...what's taking us so long? It's not that we don't want to or anything - we just haven't gotten around to it. As of last night, it's now become a major priority. Why now, you ask? Peanut just figured out how to open a cabinet door. Dang it.

We can't just pick up a mega-box of the cheapo cabinet locks. Since we're renters of this house, not owners, we don't have the authority to screw a bunch of holes into the cabinet doors. Therefore, we have to get the adhesive-backed magnetic locks. Considerably more expensive.

As I was feeding Peanut her dinner last night, I was trying to find more finger food options. She's mastered Veggie Booty and cheese pieces. I wanted to find her something a little more challenging, but yummy (and gluten-free). Enter Rice Krispies.

She loves them. Though, when she's done eating them, they become a fun way to decorate the floor.

Don't worry, I think most of us (me included) just do babyproofing as-needed. Sure, the experts SAY to be proactive, but that's not really realistic. Every kid is different on what they'll get into, anyway.

It took a couple of very small baby tumbles before we finally got the gate up at the bottom of our stairs. :-O

And, yeah, those magnetic locks ARE expensive. :(

I agree. It took a whole 10 months for Peanut to get interested in the cabinets.

Aside from the baby gate, I'm sure you had a head start with having Chickie. :)

Definitely a head start! That made it a lot easier this time.
