Now That's a Bouncing Baby Boy

September 6, 2001

Saw on the six-o'clock news last night that a toddler in the Pittsburgh area managed to open a "child-proofed" window and push out the screen, before falling out the second-story window. The kid's perfectly OK (he apparently landed on the lawn) and was examined and released from Children's Hospital.

Two things. One: I wonder if he had an easier time opening the window than his parents would have, since they don't seem bright enough to keep an eye on their kid. Two: Hopefully they figure this out before he defeats the "child-proof" bottles in the medicine cabinet. 'Cause having seen my two youngest cousins when they were toddlers, I can tell you that they're a lot more co-ordinated and inquisitive than a lot of people give them credit for.
