Today, Abigail got really quiet and being suspiciousd I decided I should investigate this. Something just isn't right when I can't hear the activity from another room. (Even looking at books is noisy in our house.)
So I walk into the kitchen to see that Abigail has gotten into the Under-the-Sink world. Before you think about baby-proofing, let me reassure you that I HAVE baby-proofed. ThoughI am not exactly happy with some of the door catches we bought and installed. These catches are the BEST we have. They, I thought, caught every time. Or maybe they catch only when I try to get to the trash can. Or even scarier, Abigail has figured them out. Poor Abigail. . . looked at me in horror as I yelled "No!" from the kitchen door. (What would you do if you say your kid playing with the BAM! cleaner that really does get rid of most stuff?)
I keep thinking that I should try to use more non-toxic substances to clean the house, and I do try to use vinegar and baking soda. But, now I am determined to use up the rest of my hazardous chemicals (why waste money) and store and use non-toxic cleaners. The most dangerous thing in the Under-the-Sink world will be the trash can. Definitely gross, but a little less scary than chemicals whose names I can't pronounce.
Disclaimer: The bathroom will not be non-toxic, but when E-coli lives there, even temporarily, I can't think gree.
