Yesterday started out like any normal morning at our house until Brody decided to make the morning a little more exciting! He and Jillian had been in our room and as they were both leaving, Brody locked our bedroom door and pulled it closed behind him. This wouldn’t have been that big of a deal had he not left his sister inside the locked room! :)
I heard her knocking on the door and thought she was just being silly. She can easily open doors, so I figured she would come out within a few seconds. After about a minute, she started whining and I realized what had happened. I hopped up in a chair to reach the little door key that was supposed to be above our door and realized it was missing. I tried other resources to open the door. It’s not a pop lock, so whatever I used was going to have to turn the lock to unlock it. This made it a little tricky! Little flat-head screw driver…too big to fit in the little lock hole. Wire hanger…didn’t work. Bobby pins…in our bathroom, so I couldn’t get to them. After quickly exhausting my resources, I called Josh. I was just calling for him to suggest something else for me to use to open the door, but he insisted that he come home to help get her out.
We patiently waited for daddy to get home! By this point, Brody felt terrible that Jillian was stuck in the room, so he just laid in the floor next to the door and talked to her.
She kept sticking her hand out from under the door so we that could hold it, so Brody laid there while she held his hand. Sweet brother!
After about 20 minutes, daddy arrived home and rescued her! She was SO excited to see him and we were SO excited to see her! :)
Josh ended-up opening the door by just twisting it as hard as he could. It took him several tries. He also had to wear my little pink silicone pig pot holder so that he could get a good grip on the door. :)
Jillian did really well the entire 30 minutes she was stuck in the room. She only cried a couple of times and mainly stayed by the door so we could talk to her. I would occasionally hear her running around the room laughing!
There’s never a dull moment at our house with our two kiddos! :)
