The plastic cabinet

Like a lot of other small-child-inhabited households, we have a kitchen cabinet full of "safe" items (primarily plastic storage containers) where Zoodle and Chickie can play. It's the only low cabinet in the kitchen without a childproof lock on it.

It's messy, though--I get tired of cleaning it up over and over! I've considered putting a lock on it. But they like to get inside and play in it. Zoodle even likes to go in there by himself, opening and closing the door.

So tell me...how in the world can I lock these doors when there is such a cute face behind them?!

Awwww!!! My kids liked to dig out the pots and pans and bang on them with wooden spoons, that cabinet eventually got a lock because mom (me) preferred to know when migraines would be occurring before they occurred! Lol.

He's kinda cute. You should definitely keep him.

Love that snaggle-tooth kid!

He is so cute! I wish we had more storage space so I could devote a cabinet to stuff Ian could play with. I could totally see him crawling inside like that. Boo, I want a bigger kitchen.

You just simply CAN'T lock that cabinet!!!
We have one, too. And it is awesome... Coqui did (and still does occasionally) hide inside the cabinet for fun.... He loves it, and I hope so will Peanut when she is ready... (which is not very far away)....
Love the picture!

So cute! He will be too old soon enough and then we'll be sad! But I hear you on the reorg of it all the time!

And how wonderful that your children are using their imagination playing with household items! It seems like so many children now only know how to play with toys. I definitely wouldn't lock that cabinet. (I LOVE the picture -- he has the sweetest face.) :)
