19 months: Now with bonus fun!

Filed under: Toddlers Preschoolers

As I noted yesterday, we started 19 months with quite a bang, and it doesn't seem to be calming down any time soon. This morning? Wito locked himself in our bedroom. AWESOME.

My husband had just left for work and I was sitting in my post-shower pink robe when I heard Wito playing in our bedroom. Then it happened- the SILENT LULL. The lull that means business; the lull that means something NOT very wise is going on with the toddler.

I walked into the hallway, noticed the bedroom door was closed, turned the handle and was denied. Somehow, Wito had pushed the little metal button that locks the door from the inside. My heart started racing, thinking about how in the hell I was going to get into that room. I remembered the window was open on the side of the house; all I needed to do was pull the screen from the window and hoist myself through the space.

(This might be a good time to go into detail about my "pink robe". It's old. AND it's very small, as it has shrunk significantly over the course of several years in dryer. AND I had just gotten out of the shower. Are you catching my drift? Because, trust me, I was going to be catching QUITE a drift, hanging out of the side of my house with nothing on but that pink robe. Of course, EVERY STINKIN' ARTICLE OF CLOTHING WAS LOCKED IN THAT BEDROOM.)

Luckily, I noticed a hole on the outside of the door handle, grabbed a tiny screwdriver, and popped the lock off without much issue. Thank God, as I'm sure my neighbors prefer their morning coffee WITHOUT a side of pale butt.
