Making an investments for my childrens saftey

October 20th, 2006 at 09:16 am

Well, I am deviating from my budget again to buy locks. Seems DS knows how to get out the window in his room now. The locks that are on it are pretty pointless because I could very easily break in if I wanted, but he knows how to work them. I found him outside with his little sister this morning. He can get her out of bed now too, but I've known that for awhile. They were outside playing in the mud just outside the window at about 5:00 a.m. this morning. I just thank God that they were not hurt or worse, someone snatched them up. I'm also parinoid that someone may have seen them and has decided to call the CPS or something. I normally get up at 6 a.m. with them, but today I guess DS just wanted to be up earlier. So, the locks will be bought ASAP. I'm thinking about getting the little metal ones that have the wing nut screws that thread through them. All those saftey ones for kids (in the isle with the doorknob covers and such) he can pretty much get into, and if he can't he'd be able to break the plastic. I wouldn't think the locks would be too expensive, but at this point price doesn't matter. I just want to make sure it never happens again.

    Are there any that can be put at the top of the window so he can't reach them? Sounds like he's going to be a mechanical engineer when he grows up. They take apart everything when growing up to "see how it works." Glad the kiddoes are okay!

    Oh, good grief! What an explorer that one is. I still remember the day, my son was about 2.5 and I went into the kitchen and saw him sitting on top of the refrigerator. He'd opened the door and used the shelves to climb up. We put a lock on the fridge after that so he couldn't open the door and use it as a ladder. Fortunately he couldn't get out the windows when he was small.

    One thing you might want to look into is wiring the front door, back door and windows so that whenever one is opened you hear a chime. That saved my sanity more times than I can count. You should be able to find something at a Home Depot or Lowe's type store in the alarms section.

    I'm glad the kids were safe.
