Child Proof

A couple of months ago, I bought a couple of different cabinet locks. I was sure that Ashlyn would start crawling soon, and I wanted to be safe. So, as soon as we came back from Hawaii, I started putting them in the kitchen. Chris finished up the job and moved onto the bathrooms. I already had a safety gate that I've used to keep Ranger out of Ashlyn's room, so I just keep it at the top of the stairs now. There are some places that I hadn't considered yet. First of all, I didn't think of the pantry in the kitchen. She loves the pantry. First she started pulling out uncooked pasta. This morning, it was the entire box of dog biscuits. Ranger would have had a real treat, if he hadn't been outside.

It's not like they're poison. I had to take a picture.

I did not realize that Ranger's water bowl would be such a temptation, either. When it is down, she makes a beeline for it, splashes in the bowl, dumps it out and splashes some more. As I said, I put the baby gate at the top of the stairs, now I just need one at the bottom.
