Toddler Booby Traps... - Posted by Chris

I don't know if you know this but toddlers (especially ours) are quite adept at setting up booby traps. These traps are not tripwires or punji sticks yet quite dangerous all the same.

For some time now we have found that Christopher is an expert at placing items, primarily toys, in the most inconvenient places. Oh, they look quite innocent however once the darkness of night falls upon our humble abode; beware. A small truck here or a “Little People” farmer there, located in just the right place so that a bare foot will step on them in the night.

Some of these traps have gotten quite sophisticated, including lights and audio which make them very effective. Now I’ve been told that this is all just child’s play, however we are convinced that they are designed to track the movement of anyone with a bedtime beyond 8 PM.
