Parrothead Posted December 20, 2011 Share Posted December 20, 2011 The door to go outside from the kitchen (the door we use mostly) had a bad doorknob on it. Because our house is so old the doorknobs are ancient. And it is difficult to purchase doorknobs that work with the old mechanisms. We tried once and it lasted a month. Dh took the doorknob of the door to our closet and replaced the kitchen doorknob. (Can you see where this is going?) Dd and I were playing (think hide and seek, but not quite) and she ran into my closet and shut the door. Yes, the one without a doorknob. I tried to get her out the window of the closet, onto the roof of the porch and into my bedroom window. I would have met her outside. The closet window has a storm window bolted in place. So I called dh and he plead family emergency. He came home and got her out with a screwdriver. I asked him why he didn't just tell me to try that and he said that he wasn't sure it would work. In between times of trying to think of a way to get her out I shoved books under the door. Trying to keep it light I told her if she was thirsty I'd pour milk on the floor and she could lap it up when if flowed under the door. :D So we can't tell anyone what happened (except here where no one really knows us) for fear that it would get turned all around (think small town) and end up as another homeschool family locking the kid in the closet. :tongue_smilie: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
