Open

So I got up this morning and heard Amy fiddling with her doorknob — usual behavior. I returned to my room to feed the cat, and when I turned around I saw Amy in the doorway — which startled me so much I screamed a little. I guess she’s learned how to open doors now. I’m glad she waited until she heard me up and moving around. I wonder how long that consideration will last.

  1. When our kids were very little we used to live in a farmhouse in the country. Our son very quickly figured out how to crawl out of his crib, then open the door and go wherever he wanted. As we were in the middle of nowhere, we were always concerned he would let himself out of the house in the middle of the night in winter and head off into the fields (he had done it once or twice already during the day). So, I ended up having to put a hook and eye on the outside of his door so he couldn’t get out of his room at night. We later had to put one on the back door out of his reach so he couldn’t let himself out of the house during the day either! I can’t tell you how many times I heard that door rattling that hook!

  2. Hard to tell. With naptime it took my son a week to realize that once he was out of his room, if he stayed quiet it was much less likely I’d find him and make him go back to bed. The sneakery has commenced!
