Becoming a Handyman (Woman)
The original plan was to get Jason to do the baby-proofing before he deployed, but as I learned in the Marine Corps, the plan never withstands first contact! He came home from CA and we only had a short time to spend together before he left, so the baby-proofing took a back burner. Which leads me to this post: on Wednesday, I tackled the task of limiting our nosy little girl's access to our kitchen and bathroom cabinets. Having used a drill only 2 or 3 times before, I was hesitant to try this myself. But after some guidance from FIL via telephone, I felt confident enough to dive in. Overall, the job wasn't too difficult and I finished the kitchen and guest bathroom while Reagan napped. Unfortunately, this success only boosted my confidence so now I'm looking for more excuses to use the drill:)
Supplies: Drill, pencil, screwdriver, KidCo spring action locks
and only one broken drill bit!
I would highly recommend these latches to any other new parents. They are relatively easy to install (especially for someone who is experienced with a drill) and are not so tough that I won't be able to get into the cabinets myself.
