Here's looking at you kid

Well as I said yesterday rainy, nasty weather does not mix well with rowdy, rambunctious children. We had almost seven hours of steady spats and spills before it was time to sit down for lunch. And upon yelling for Jake to come eat I get "I can't I am stuck."

STUCK! WHAT DO YOU MEAN STUCK?


He means he locked the door and pulled the door handle off into the room with him. I tried in vain for 30 minutes to pry the broken lock out with a screwdriver and 30 minutes seems like 5 hours when you are panicking and trying to calm an upset pre schooler. After the screw driver failed I just decided to go around the outside of the house and pull him out through a window but they were locked and in response to me trying to tell him how to open it I got "I can't hear you and I have to pee really bad." I called my husband at work because he tends to be able to walk me through these situations in a calm manner. That's how we work I am a paranoid freak and he is cool as a cucumber...ying yang affect. Anyway he was too far away for work to come home and couldn't tell what to do over the phone so he called his father to come over. GRANDPA TO THE RESCUE!! My father in law is the most cool, collected person on the planet. I guess that's where my husband gets it from. He did such a great job of not getting aggravated and after three different tools, several plans of taking my door down,  two mentions of calling the fire department (which I was not opposed to by the way...I mean who doesn't like firemen) and one big pull with a crow bar JAKE WAS FREE AGAIN!

 Thank goodness it's sunny today and we will be changing the kids rooms to knobs that don't lock very soon!
