When good ideas punch me in the face.
The kids get in the pantry. They scale the walls, stuffing their fat cheeks with crackers, raisins and nuts while I slave over dinner at the hot stove. And then they don't eat their dinner. And it drives me crazy. And it has to stop.
Enter: Shower-curtain rod.
Pure genius. Not so easy to install & remove. But, in a pinch it does the job. Until I decide to whip open the pantry door in search of...
I'm lying on the floor holding my throbbing face. I look up. The pantry is open. The shower-curtain rod is lying next to me. Dang it! I'm such a freakin' idiot! Who does that?! And then I cry.
Lesson: Don't try to keep kids out of the pantry. Karma.
