My Little Monster - Part 1
Last night I took Jessica out to dinner and a play for her birthday. The kids stayed home with their Ate Meriam and Ate Mylene watching them. Our kids are pretty good kids for the most part and they are pretty easy to watch. Kian and Christian are usually content playing games on the computer or watching television. That just leaves Grace and Tyler, who were nicely playing together in the kitchen. Well...for some reason Grace decided to go into the sala (that's what Filipinos call the living room). Tyler was having fun innocently playing in the kitchen by himself until he decided to close the door, and somehow climbed up on a stool to lock it. Unalarmed about being locked in the kitchen by himself, Tyler proceeded to pull a stool up next to the table and then climb on top of the table (he is 1 year and 10 months old mind you). I don't know how he did it, but he managed to kick the stool away and was then unable to climb back down from the table. This is probably about the time when the ladies noticed that Tyler was locked in. Perched on the top of the table he started calling out, "Help!", "Help!" Unable to get into the kitchen they went outside where they could see Tyler through the kitchen window. They called to him, "Tyler, unlock the door." The table is situated right next to the door, but somehow in his attempt to unlock the door he instead turned off the lights. Fortunately his older brother Kian was able to find the key and Tyler was rescued. Click here to read part 2.
