The Escape Artist

So, yesterday I get Johnathan up from his nap and put him in his fenced off section of the living room so I can go make his bottle. For those of you that don't know, whe have a super yard opened to close off a good amount of the living room for him to play in and there is a "window" in the wall between the kitchen and this space so we can see him if we need to make dinner, etc. At any rate, I'm in the kitchen getting his bottle ready when in comes this crawling, giggling little boy. Cute as it was I was horrified and thought, "I'm just such a horrible mother; how could I have not remembered to close off the gate???" A few hours later, Johnathan and I are playing in this same space when, apparently, he'd had enough of Mommy. He crawls right over to the end of the gate, pulls it open and crawls out. Right in front of me! Little stinker! Needless to say, things are being re-configured today.
