Please Don't Lock the Bathroom Door

the time is t-minus 5 minutes until leaving for school. the place? the upstairs bathroom. the culprit? my friend daniel estoll, 4 years old.

the kid was having a rough time anyway because he had just woken up. his hair was all frazzled and he was missing a shirt. add to that the fact that we were about to get in the car, jammy pants and all to get his older brother to school, and he wasn't in the best frame of mind. well, neither was i for that matter.

he locked himself in for reasons unknown, and immediately started freaking out. fortunately, he is the most level-headed of my children. he gets it from his mother. after several minutes of "take a deep breath, daniel" and "turn the little lever--no, not the handle, the lever! turn it away from the sink--no! away from the sink!!" we finally managed to spring him from the clink.

we even made it to school on time.

but, in the future, please don't lock the bathroom door!
