It has become painfully apparent that we needed to babyproof, like, months ago. I still freeze up when looking around our shoebox apartment, though, because there is no place to put anything! Where do I even start to babyproof?
I thought perhaps I would get a baby gate to at least separate the living room from the rest of the apartment (namely, the cats’ bowls and litterboxes), so off to the big bullseye store we went. There are many gates to choose from, so I just went with the cheapest thing. I got home and was reminded that we have wacky angles to work with and the only place to install a baby gate is impossibly wide, so the gate will not work. I ran to another department store later in the afternoon (after measuring the freaking hallway this time), but no luck! Guess I’ll have to order online.
Since Jack won’t stop crawling and getting into everything and I had to make dinner, I built a barricade. This is what happened:
I don’t know about you, but I like how the devilish side of him came out with the flash. 😉
So now that it’s time to actually do some babyproofing around this place, I need help. Considering we have a very small budget and no other storage, anyone have any ideas for these spaces? The books and CDs we might be able to pack away in a closet once we rid ourselves of some stuff Jack has outgrown – not so the computer stuff (obviously).
