In the war of the babies against the safety devices, the babies are expected to win. You can tell because it says right on the package that the baby will "defeat" the electrical cord cover:
My favorite part is that you're supposed to "discontinue use" once the baby can defeat the safety device. Because surely it's better to give the baby direct access to electrical outlets.
But then what do I know? I pulled wasp wings out of baby's mouth last week.
In another win for baby, I returned from a 20 minute run to the drug store to find The-Guy struggling to free his bowl of pomegranate seeds from baby's hand, her other fist already fat with the seeds. I helped him get his bowl back as he explained that her mouth was full of cat food and that he thought she had also managed to ingest a little cat vomit.
"No-no-no!" I scolded her as the fistful of pomegranate seeds made their inevitable way toward her mouth, "Finish the cat food first!"
Look, here's the little victor now:
Although she hasn't actually managed to "defeat" the plug covers yet. Just us.
