My Own Little Houdini


  • MJ has stayed in his room all night the last four nights in his 'big boy bed' which at this point is a mattress on the floor.

  • He is unable to get out of his room due to the door knob cover I have on his door.

  • We also have door knob covers on the master bath door and the basement door.


Tonight Bobby gave the kiddos a bath. As I was helping him get their pajamas on in their room, MJ went to open his bedroom door which was shut. When he went to open the door, surprisingly it opened. MJ seemed as surprised as we did and immediately shut the door and tried, successfully, again. He immediately walked in to our room, crawled in to our bed and told me "It's night night time Mommy."

Future Implications:

How do we keep him in his room and out of dangerous situations i.e. wandering the house in the middle of the night, leaving the basement door open to allow RJ to fall down the stairs etc?

Hey Robyn, it's Kelly (BJ's step-sister). We have a mesh fabric screen that retracts across our stairs from when the kids were little. Works like a charm. I'll find out who makes it if you'd like. Libby sent me link to your blog and I love it. Send BJ my love. Good luck with Molly, can't wait to see pictures!!
