Are you smarter than a 2 year old?

For the record, I currently am. Getting my 2 year old son to stay in his room at night and actually sleep has been a bit of an uphill battle. It all started when we got the toddler bed of course. First, we thought we'd try just using a baby gate. Fail. He kept opening the door to peek over the gate. His little face peeking out was pretty cute for about .05 seconds. Next, we decided to just lock the door. Well, then he kept turning the light on, and a week ago his smarty pants friend (who is also 2) taught him how to unlock the door. So, FINALLY our solution was to flip the door handle around and install this:

25 cents worth of wood trim from Home Depot and some hot glue to cover the light switch. I was going to paint it white to match but then I didn't feel like it. :) Unfortunately, this doesn't stop him from waking up at the crack of dawn yelling for me to let him out. Oh well, guess I can't have it all.

I've been debating the idea of a blog for some time now. I set up my blogger account, made up a catchy title, and set to work designing my blog. Well...that's where the fun ended. I just couldn't get things to do what I wanted them to. Of course I know there are tons of tutorials out there to help me figure out how to make my blog look exactly the way I want it to but I don't have the time (or the interest really) to read them. I said all that to say....I gave up on my lofty goals of perfection and left it at this! Which is still pretty cute in my opinion. :) So join my on my journey of "Doin' the Dunlap" as I cook, craft, sew, raise 2 crazy little boys, blabber, and try to live like Jesus. (That last one is a doozy!)
