A New Way To Childproof Your Drawers

Anonymous Sports Betting

My daughter will be 1 year old in less than a month now, and she isn’t just walking around, she is running around. And she is into everything, and I mean everything. She on top of the footstool, under the coffee table, climbing the steps, inside of her toybox, literally anywhere she can squeeze into, under, or on top of.

We bought these little clippy things that go onto your cabinet drawers and doors to keep toddlers from opening them. They work well, but what a pain they are to install. If I knew that we could have got the same outcome by training the dog to be a drawer childproofer(as the video below shows) I wouldn’t have had the headache of putting all those blasted things on.

Did You Know? (7-27-07)

• Wayne’s World was filmed in two weeks.

• The raised reflective dots in the middle of highways are called Botts dots.

• Samuel Clemens’ pseudonym “Mark Twain” was the nickname of a riverboat pilot about whom Clemens wrote a needless nasty satirical piece. Apparently, Clemens felt guilt later and adopted the name as a nom de plume as some sort of expiation.

• Every time you lick a stamp, you’re consuming 1/10 of a calorie.

• The derivation of the word trivia comes from the Latin “tri-” + “via”, which means three streets. This is because in ancient times, at an intersection of three streeets in Rome (or some other Italian place), they would have a type of kiosk where ancillary information was listed. You might be interested in it, you might not, hence they were bits of “trivia.”
