Aaaaaahhhh yes.The joys of fatherhood.
Today our youngest sibbling all of 1 year and a few months has discovered how wonderfull it is to crawl along the floor and close doors around the house.
I recieved a call this afternoon at work (i was out of town) from my wife telling me she just paid a lock smith $110(AUD) to come round and unlock the house.
Our youngest sibbling had crawled over to the front door and closed it on my wife when she walked out to get the car to unload the shopping.the door was locked.the keys in the house.
My wife then spent about 15 minutes walking the street trying to find a house with someone home to use their phone to call a lock smith to open the door.
My wife told the lock smith that our child was locked in the house.
The locksmith said, then get the child to unlock the door.
My wife replied, our child is only about 2 foot tall and she is still only able to master the words Dada and Muma, and lacks the ability to reach the door handle,let alone have the strength to turn it, nor can she even walk yet.The most walking she has managed is 6 steps before a face plant in to the floor with much tears and screaming directly followed.
The locksmith said, ah ha. i will be there in 10 minutes.
Upon entering our dwelling after the locksmith had done his work our daughter crawled to the door and shut it again, but lucky enough my wife had entered and unlocked the door.
I just cracked up laughing.
After i got off the phone one of my work mates asked me what was so funny and i explained it to him. He had a good laugh and told me that my wife was not alone and the same thing had happened to him and his wife when their children were similar ages.
Onions, im sure you will have plenty of stories to share with us like this in the years to follow.
I for one look forward to reading them
I could go on for ages with some funny stories from my kids,but i wont bore you to death.
Onions, do you own a video camera?
If not do you know someone who does?
If so your in for some treats my friend.I suggest you keep a tape next to it at all times and a spare battry in it and charged at all times, cos you just never know when you might be needing it
