Monday Mishaps with Mom - Refrigerator Curiosity

Ok, here we are at week 6 with this new series. This week is in honor of those toddlers who discover they can open the refrigerator all by themselves.

My daughter discovered this last week, and now it's her favorite thing in the world to be a "big girl" and open the door. Of course, she then stands in front of it and stares, like the contents within are an amazing work of art of some jaw-dropping collection rendering her speechless.

But when she's not in awe, she dives right in and gets what she wants. I am thankful most of the contents are on shelves out of her reach--for now. But she can still get to the door shelves and the 3 drawers at the bottom. That's our meat, cheeses, produce, and all our drinks.

And after she decided to make herself a ham, turkey, shredded cheese, cucumber slices, and sausage "sandwich", we put a child-safety lock on the doors. We'll slowly ease her back into responsibility when it comes to the refrigerator, but for now, she's on lock-down without an adult present.

How about you? Did your children ever venture into the refrigerator and decide they wanted to "prepare" something for you or themselves? Please share. I'd love to hear about it.

Tune in next week for the next "Monday Mishap with Mom." See you then!

And you can always look at the labels at the bottom of the right column to find "monday mishaps with mom" and read up on any week you've missed. My goal is to encourage mothers who feel a bit frazzled, and to help brighten your day as you start off your week. You're not alone.

Mine are more than capable of getting their own snacks. Now it's all about restocking. And restocking. And restocking. And restocking. And restocking.
You get the idea.

Oh, I have no doubt my son will get there...eventually. And when both he and my daughter are old enough to be in cahoots together, I'm going to be in so much trouble. :)
