Remember when I posted very early last summer about how Thad wasn't really a mover and shaker, but had finally learned to crawl so I was in need of some baby proofing? Well, yeah, um...things got busy and the entirety of my baby-proofing consisted of some really crappy corner bumpers for the coffee table that lasted about a day and half, about half the kitchen cupboards getting safety latches, two regular gates for stairways, and my awesome DIY gate for the living/dining area.
However, now that Thad is a full on toddler-monster, I am re-thinking this whole baby-proofing (or lack thereof). First on my list, those cord protectors that would keep him from strangling himself on the blinds...and let me tell you - I need to get these puppies up ASAP. He LOVES to smack around the blinds, drives me nuts. Right now, I just hang the cords up over the top of the blinds, but I don't feel comfortable doing that forever.
Next on the list, a pack of the plug outlets covers. Thad's just started to notice the outlet in his room at night before bed (and by notice I mean try to pull his nightlight out of the socket) and I'm sure it's only a matter of time before he finds all of the ones in the living room, dining room, etc.
Oh and the next time around, if we're lucky enough to bring another wonder into this world, I'd really like to get one of those baby monitors with a camera. I'm a bit paranoid like that and the one we had before only had sound (and a crazy amplified sound that made getting up in the middle of night so much worse than it was). One of these babies might be nice.
And next time around, I'll be checking out all of the child safety devices and child proofing products The Home Security store has to offer. Unlike a big box store, they're known for their superior customer service (can we get an Amen for that?). They also began their journey with a garage an and idea - while recently expanding they've still got that small-time feel that allows for real people and real customer service when you have real questions and concerns...this day in age, you can't ask for more.
