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.
