Jack Laughs In The Face Of Childproofing

When my two year old couldn’t remove the childproof lock to the game cabinet, he just removed the whole door. Then sprinkled game pieces all over the playroom. When I asked what he had done, he climbed the furniture and showed me his muscles. Good luck with that, me.

    The Incredible Hulk baby! 😀 Sorry about your cabinet, though. That sucks.

    I had a 2 yr old that broke a car seat.

    Ah! It can be fixed though right? Looks like he just pulled it right off the hinges. My kids used to snap the baby locks for fun.

    That is really crappy! If if was puzzle pieces scattered about your playroom, I have a suggestion. When you put ALL of the different puzzles back together, put the same symbol on the back of each of them before putting them back in the box. That way, when the Incredible Hulk decided it’s time to play Destructor again, you will be able to easily put the puzzle pieces back in the box. It also will help the Hulk learn his shapes 🙂 This was a lesson I learned after my dear sweet daughter did the same thing. Grr.

      Just throw away the puzzle peices, then it’s a lesson for the kid.

        At this age no it is not. They don’t get the “gone forever” concept.

      Easier: Flip the solved puzzle over, lay on some cardboard outside, and spraypaint the backside a unique color. Don’t use brush-on or roll-on paint (such as house paint); that will “glue” the pieces together.
      Easier still:  As soon as you open a new puzzle box, have the kid draw/paint a dot or symbol on the back of each piece. When the puzzle is solved, flip it over to make shure every piece is marked.

    Sorry about the game pieces!  The cabinet can be fixed an a few minutes… the game pieces could take weeks to gather up! Assuming none get vacuumed up or eaten or tossed by accident. Speaking as a mom whose son loves to leave game pieces in every room of the house, I just gather them up in a bucket and every few months sort them back in the the right boxes. Other wise it will drive me crazy.  Good thing he’s adorable, huh?

    No more Team UmiZoomi for him! 🙂  If I didn’t know any better, I’d say Milli is laughing at you.

    I love how his little face is all red from making muscles.  Strong kid!  Bummer about the games.  Wow, kids really are amazing.

    Strong = healthy, and that’s a good thing, right?  I learned the hard way that games and puzzles simply cannot be left within reach, even behind “child proof” doors.  I keep them high (luckily I don’t have a climber) in a large plastic box with a snap top.  I also no longer have boxes, I have game boards and sandwich bags with labels, lots of them.  Apparently taking the boxes apart was part of the fun.

    I can so relate to this. I call my son Hulk Baby.

    We had installed a baby gate, the thick plastic ones, we used the hinges to make it more like a lil door… well Hulk Baby went to open it and check it out and pulled it off the wall. Split the gate down the middle and took some of the door frame with it.

    My hulk baby has done that with game pieces. Utter disaster. He’s the same kid who broke the trim off the fridge door when we finally started locking it.

    He’s not quite three and gives his 1st grade brother ideas…
