Childproofing Take #1

As I’ve shared with you I have a roller…and now a crawler! Which means that my husband and I have been on our hands and knees seeing the world from a 6 month old point of view.  The challenge is that the mundane items we see every day are like presents for Mary! She goes for the shine (watch out future boyfriends) and anything of danger. 

So we’re started the journey of childproofing.  I headed down to the Dayton Children’s Kids Care Shop to purchase some much needed items in an attempt to keep Mary out of trouble. We have a long way to go but we’ve at least covered the outlets, locked up cabinets, and hidden surge protectors. Here are a few photos from our work so far – I promise more to come!

Outlet Plugs Designed to Save Well Manicured Nails (Not necessary in my case)This fancy device should keep Mary out of the bathroom cabinet - hopefully I can get in!


Surge protector protected - not crazy about leftover wires...will continue to modify this contraption
