As a homeschooling mom, I try to make sure we learn at least 1 thing per day. Today I learned that my refrigerator has a “Lock” control on it.


I learned this after my 4 yr old came running in yelling “Mommy, Mommy! Your baby’s in the water!” Apparently she’s figured out how to scoot, stack and climb her way to just about anything. And today it was a kitchen chair right over to the refrigerator where she proceeded to drench herself, and my kitchen, with a nice stream of cold fridge water.

It hasn’t ended there, she’s found the fruit bowl, yesterday she scooted her chair over to the fruit, snatched an apple, took a bite, looked up, saw me, and took off running and squealing. Today it was an orange…she spit out the peel after taking a bite though, guess it didn’t taste so good. Looks like she’s after a Kiwi this time…


Since then I’ve caught her here:


and here…

and here…ugh, always here! What is it with the snack cabinet?

and here…but I suppose I can’t complain if she’s doin’ a little math.


And at least once a day she tries this again…but I’ve wised up to her antics.

And the lock’s on baby.

  1. oh dear… when Boy {my youngest} decided he had discover most everything to discover that way.. he moved on. His favorite thing to do, and still does from time to time, is get on the table and either dance around, or run back and forth!!!He has been one busy man, and kept us all running, day and night!!!

  2. What can you do with a 4' toddler!!! Mine did the same thing. One morning I found my oldest son (2 1/2 years old at the time) "making breakfast" he was on his stool and had the peanut butter and a piece of bread and a butter knife! They totally have things figured out, it's only their size and their verbal skills that limit them!
