Like I said in yesterday’s post, we’re ordering a lot of things on the Internet these days and one of them has been bars for our windows. Not because we live in a dangerous neighborhood, quite the opposite in fact. We are trying to keep our little beast IN, not OUT. Ollie’s gotten to the point where I wouldn’t put it past him to just kick out his bedroom window and climb out on the roof to avoid going to bed. We started getting seriously worried about this potential scenario and consequently ordered the bars for our windows you see in the picture below. Grey’s big task this weekend is to convert the nursery to an Ollie-proof cell from which our little Houdini can’t escape. Ah, the joys of parenthood!
I think the fact that we have no purchased bars for our windows ranks right up there with the fact that we also own a kid leash for little Ollie. Should I be worried about a pattern here? What’s next — handcuffs for trips to the grocery store? It makes me wonder if I’m just a bad mom who has no control over my child, but then I assure myself, I am a GOOD mom, but I still have no control over my child!
