Prince Charming's Traumatic Event

Yesterday I heard Price Charming yelling, "Mama, Daddy, KyKy, HELP ME!" When I went to see what my darling little boy needed, I found that he had locked himself into the extra bedroom. Since we do not have a key for that door, we tried to explain to him how to get out of his predicament. It was to no avail.

Concerned brothers and sisters worked at trying to pick the lock. I tried to keep him calm by talking to him through the door. The girls tried to shove toys under the door to make him happier. He continued to yell "Help me, help me!"

Thankfully, the former owner of our house chopped all the bottoms off the wood doors way back when they installed shag carpeting. I was able to put the zoom lens of my camera under the door so I could keep an eye on him. He just stayed by the door trying to get it unlocked. All of our attempts at freeing him were unsuccessful. He finally figured it out on his own.

Free at last! Look at his face. You can tell he was traumatized...and will probably need counseling in the future. I can hear it now, "I don't know why doc, I have this fear of closed doors."

Out of the door and straight into Mama's arms. After some hugs and kisses he was fine and on the way to his next adventure.

(Yes, that gray skinned person is me. But I am on the mend. My hemoglobin was 10.7 the other day. I was told 12-15 is normal. I have more energy all the time. Yeah!)

  5. Oh those kids just keep us on our toes!

  6. LOL Oh, yes, those are fun moments! We have an old house with large openings under some of the doors. And the locks.... they are something.
    Our front and back doors have a button on the side of the door that locks it permanantly, as in you can only unlock it if the door is actually OPEN. Or you have to take the door knob apart to get it open again. That was a fun discovery.

    I'm glad you are starting to feel better.

  7. Hi Michelle,

    I was looking for your email address to send you private note about your question but couldn't find one. A simple answer to your question would be it is going fine. We stared last Tuesday and had a week just settling in. The kids seemed to enjoy what we did and didn't complain that they weren't at school with there friends. I was very encouraged by this.

    I have been praying for you and hope your health and energy are returning to you.

    God Bless,


I love to hear what you have to say.
