Yesterday, I looked at Eden and realized just how much she has grown in the past year. All traces of babyhood are gone. Now she seems like such a big girl. So independent!!! Larry and I talk about it and he laughed as I got choked up imagining our little girl as a teenager.
A few minutes later, Eden was playing in her room and shut the door. Then she locked herself in. I heard the door lock and thought Oh No!!! I went and pulled on the door to no avail. So I ran into our room and got Larry. He's the smart and ration one of the two of us.
So there we sat in the hallway, taking the lock off the door. Laughing and talking to her. She thought it was just so funny, an extended version of hind and seek. A few minutes later with the lock on the floor we ran in her room. She had the biggest smile on her face. She danced she was so excited that we made it in her room. I know she was thinking, hey Mom what took you and Daddy so long! I checked her over and she was fine. She ran into the living room and played with her toys. Never thinking or realizing the panic she put Mommy and Daddy in. Larry said she was just practicing for when she's a teenager.
Needless to say, The lock on her room and Josiah's room have been turned lock side out. We're still deciding if we need to turn the bathroom lock around or not. It would be bad if Eden locked us in while we (or a guest) was using the bathroom. We will have to keep screwdriver near the door.
Oh the joys of parenthood!!! :)
