child proofing

I thought our days of child proofing were over.
I was wrong.
All this week our boys have had little colds.
They're at varying stages of it
but all of them are feeling puny.
So we've let them do alot of laying around
and watching tv etc.
Two nights ago we were doing our nightly
assembly line of baths...
one guy in the bath,
the other dressing in pjs,
the next brushing teeth.
Rotate and repeat.
Our youngest was the first one done.
He wandered back into our bedroom where
someone had left on the tv.
The tv is not normally on but tonight it is.
I guess he heard it and went to investigate.
Thankfully I had walked into our bathroom
and was on my way back to their bathroom
to help finish up the bath process.
I screamed.
Our four year old had his hands above his head
and was attempting to climb our tall dresser
on top of which sits our tv.
I went through the whole scenario...
at the top of my lungs...
"DON'T YOU EVER
EVER
TRY TO CLIMB
UP THAT THING AGAIN!
DONT YOU KNOW THAT IF THAT THING
FALLS ON YOU
THAT YOU WILL DIE
AND GO TO HEAVEN?????"

"yes ma'am" came his tiny response.
There is nothing tiny about this kid.
He could have pulled it over in an instant.

So today I'm blog crawling and I click through a link
This is not coincidence.
It is God whispering to me.
She notes not to read this if you're having a sensitive day.
I'm so glad I read it.
Get tissues if you choose to click though.
Today I am researching how to secure furniture to the wall.
If you have any ideas or tips please leave a comment.
If you have small children you HAVE to read this.
Please.
I'm so glad I did.
