You ever notice that it ALWAYS seems to be only 2 year olds that do stuff like this?


That and running naked down the road seems to be quite popular at that age for some reason...

Yep! Physical skills outmatch their mental capabilities...there must be guardian angels or some type of protective power hovering over these devious little demons who live only in the immediate moment. They get an idea and off they go...............

i just can not blame the parents. Maybe they were at fault, but I know of 3 situations where the parents really did EVERYTHING and their toddler still got out.

One case the child was 2.5. He was an escape artist. Usually in the middle of the night. The mom used several child-safe locks and none worked (he figured them out) so she put a dead bolt on the boy's door. CPS came and said she couldn't. So she put a key lock dead bold on the outside doors. CPS came and said she couldn't do that either! I baby sat this kid and one time I was sitting and watching TV but listening for him...he got several blocks away before I noticed. And I was a very attentive sitter (I had tucked him in, checked on him and he was "asleep"...he wasnt). I was lucky to find him because of his foot prints in the frost!!!! He thought it was so funny!

Another was a 1.5 er old boy who just loved to take off his clothes and run around outside...all year round...and talk to passer byers. His mom wasnt awesome, but this was so random, you couldn't blame her. He would bolt when she went to the rest room or took a shower or made a meal. Even if she had the house locked up. Even if it seemed like she had him locked up!

Another was an autistic young boy. He had round the clock care by good people and still got out a few times.

Yep, this happened at our house too, only it was during the day on a weekend. I was gone to town and hubby was "watching" our youngest son (years ago) He climbed on his 4x4 battery powered car and went down our driveway and out onto the (thankfully quiet) country road. Our neighbor saw him and called him into her driveway to show her his car, then called his dad to come and get him.

Hubby's cousin had a son who was an escape artist. She put locks at the top of the door and he pushed a chair to the door, then piled boxes onto the chair until he could reach the lock and out he went into the night.

My brother went for an afternoon nap when he put their three year old daughter down for hers. She woke up before him, unlocked the front door and was outside playing in a dress with boots on in fairly chilly weather. Her mom came down the street from work and wondered who on earth would let their child outside to play without a coat on in cold weather. She couldn't believe her eyes when she realized that it was HER daughter lol.

Way before I was born, my mom used to tie my two year old twin brothers outside in the back yard with a rope to the back of their jumpers. One day she went outside and the jumpers were there and the twins were gone. The were up the street playing in a neighbor's yard.

Yes, some kids need a ball and chain on their ankles. (yes, I'm kidding)

One day I came home to find my two year old son, buck naked, except for the pair of my red high heels he was wearing, standing in the front yard, gleefully spraying the neighbor lady with the power hose.

I can still hear saying " No bay bay, no bay bay " in her Spanish accent.
I found my husband napping on the couch.

Can't get too mad at him though. The same child managed to get himself stuck in a birdcage on my watch. That was fun.

I didn't have any more children after him. He's not the kind of child you have more kids after.

Ps. I like the wording in the article " he just got in his car and left" bwahahaha.
