I removed the flip flop and was about to put the vent cover back over the hole when I decided to reach in to make sure he didn’t stash away any other little surprises. Sure enough it was filled with all sorts of treasures. On my first reach into the hole, I pulled out piggy. He had been missing for quite some time, so it was nice to reunite him with the other farm animals. Then I stuck my arm in again and revealed the mysterious disappearing magnetic letter reader. I know that I’ve searched the house up and down on several occasions looking for that one. Then I reached my hand down there again and I either touched a hairy bug or a little dust so I quickly pulled it back out for now. Note to self: clean out the vents. Anyway, that was enough excitement for one day!
So today I learned that if something can come apart, my son will figure out a way! Also, no matter how much you baby proof a room, it will never really be completely baby proofed. There’s always something new to explore!
Then I started to think…I wonder what else is down that hole? And if he managed to hide things in the vent hole what else did he take apart and possibly hide? But the biggest question of all, how do you baby proof a metal forced air heat/AC vent?
As a new mom, I often have more questions than answers, but every day is filled with new adventures and you have to love that!
