What a Waste

The other day, my husband and I bought a kiddie gate. I was hoping it'd keep our two brats out of the kitchen. We get home from the store, and my husband starts to put the gate up. It's easy enough, and it's not hard for us to get in and out. I mentioned that we might want to step over the gate instead of using the latch so our kids don't figure out how it works. Like he ever listens to me...

The next morning, my little boy is using the kitchen counter to climb over the gate to get into the kitchen. And since Daddy-dearest opened the gate using the latch, my daughter had it figured out just before nap time. What a great investment of $30. So not only am I yelling at the kids to get out of the kitchen, I'm yelling at them to get away from the gate.

We also bought some doorknob covers since Daddy helped my little girl figure out doorknobs. Thank goodness her hands are too small to fit around those, and that she lacks the manual dexterity to squeeze and twist.

All that's left now is to finally get Daddy to put the cabinet locks on the cabinets so the kids stay out of the snack and pot cabinets!

From what it sounds like, you need to lock Hub up instead!
