Collateral Damage

Girlfriend is teething.
She isn't a fussy teether.
She just slobbers a lot 
& chews on E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G.

Of all the things in the world she could chew on...
oh, I don't know like...maybe her teething toys...

She chooses my power cord.
She gravitates towards it.
She hunts it down.
She simply notices it &
crawls at warp speed from across the room to get to it.
my. power. cord!
really child?!

$85 later, I have a new power cord.

& AJ is just crazy.
There is no other explanation for it.
One thing that absolutely drives. me. insane. is that 
our laundry room does not have an electrical outlet.
really Berkley?!
no outlet?!
a spacious laundry room without an outlet?!

So in order to iron at my house
oh...I don't know in a logical place like the laundry room,
we have to slide the cord under the door & into the hall to plug it in:
This scene this drives me insane like nobody's business everyday of my life, but
apparently this scene had a different affect on AJ.

Today AJ saw the above scenario, & was just too tempted to grab that cord & 
run like a banshee through the house.
Are. you. kidding. me?!
Crazy, I tell ya.  
That boy has fleeting moments of insanity 
or lapses of judgement 
or just pure bouts of impulsivity.

$101.27 later, I have a new power cord & a new iron.
How exciting.
Didn't anyone tell these children that the most expensive...
I mean the happiest time of the year is just around the corner?

You should be able to get an electrician to in an electrical very easily since there is alread electric right there. All he will have to do is open up a place for the plug in and run the wires right from the existing outlet and wallah! Presto! you have an electric outlet in your utility and added a wee slight bit of equity to your home. love ya, recca
