Curiosity killed the cat

Let's hope it doesn't kill the Bugalugs.

I got out of the shower the other morning to see this:

Elijah was sitting in the middle of the floor, gently taking everything out of the apparently child-proofed cupboards and stacking it all neatly on the floor.

I asked him what he was doing. He looked at me with very innocent eyes and said, "Elijah want standing in the cupboard."

When my nephew was young, my sister suffered an injury that put her in the hospital. She came home with a bottle of pain pills and pain that wouldn't allow her to grasp and open them. H?er 18 month old son watched her struggle, then took the childproof bottle, and opened it for her.

LOL! That really doesn't surprise me at all, though. When the child is intelligent enough, I guess no child-proofing will stop them.

When my brother and I were little, the kitchen cupboards had no handles at all, so were intended to be totally child-proof. There was a certain trick to opening them. Any time our grandmother came over to take care of us, she's have to ask us to open the cupboards for her.

We used to joke they weren't child-proof, they were Grandma-proof!
