Batten and Board

We're in the middle of a[nother] project in our house, now that the Murphy Bed / Study is finished this time we are installing Batten and Board in our main room and a bench and mudroom hooks in our entryway.  Right now it looks like we were framing an add-on and then ran out of money, but when complete it's going to look awesome.

Dan's mini me snuck away from the dinner table to put on his hat and goggles and start hammering away.   Three things come to mind: 1. how much she looks like Dan -- her posture and build, her face, that hat... 2. She can be SUCH a good and eager helper sometimes (I said sometimes)... 3. I love that our girls see their father at work on our home, using his hands and his skills.   That makes me get past the stress and eagerness to be all done and have our house back.  Will share "finished" pictures on social media when the time comes!

And for those mother and father who think that they have their house kid proofed, it is always smart to give it a second look to examine any threats that you might have neglected. On the whole, the whole house should be kid proofed, although some mother and father choose to restrict their kids to a particular area of the house only through the use of kid gateways, and that's excellent too.

    Just make sure that other places the kid has accessibility are safe.

    Get Down on Their Level

    The first step to successfully childproofing your house is to perspective your house from the eye stage of the kid. This means getting down on the ground and sneaking around and considering how kids think. There are expert professionals who are well-versed in doing this for you, but most people have the capability of determining sections of the house that have protection issues for the kids, youngsters and youngsters.
