So...DH comes home from work today having picked up some batteries on the way home which we needed for remotes. He bought 4 two-packs. He comes in, tosses them on the living room coffee table, and forgets about them.
So hours later, we're going to play Jeopardy on the Wii, and we need to replace the batteries, and he's all, "Where did you put the batteries?" I said, I didn't put them anywhere, which was true...I hadn't touched them. So then I told him, that if he just left them on the table, Beni probably picked them up and carried them off. So right as I'm saying, "You can't just leave stuff..." he breaks in with, "What, so I can't leave anything on the table anymore??? Every single thing needs to be high up out of reach???!!!"
I looked at him and was like, " WE HAVE A 15 MONTH OLD DAUGHTER----- YES!"
He really is such a great dad and does things and helps and whatever...but sometimes he is SO DENSE about what it means to have a baby around. Like, really, what, you think she's just going to *know* that she's not allowed to touch batteries, or touch something that daddy left on the table??? Hell no! As far as she (and I'm guessing MOST 15 MOS OLDS!) is concerned if it's within reach, it's fair game... and if it's not within reach, that means she can try to climb up on something to reach it!
Tell me I am not alone in this???
(By the way, I found two packs on a shelf in her play room, DH found one under the couch, and the fourth remains missing.)
