    Unbelievable. My kids are too much. I went to check on the chickies in our basement bathroom. The 3 yo apparently locked the door on her way out and I can't get it unlocked! [​IMG] It's not the easy kind with the hole in the center, where just sticking in a long skinny object will pop open the button. Ugh.

    I have to leave for work soon and DH won't be home for hours. I hope I can figure something out to check on them.

    You cant eat your children when they make you angry.

    Or at least its certainly frowned upon...

    Chickens, not so much.

    Whew, thankfully I was able to get them unlocked and everyone's ok. Kids. [​IMG] I told my husband we should have skipped the kids and stuck with animals, lol. They don't seem to get into as much trouble.

    No kids! Yuck! They aren't good for anything. They won't eat bugs in your yard, well not many, and they won't lay eggs.

    Kids, phooeey, who needs e'em.

    The question is, how many kids does one have to have to ensure they're cared for in retirement...I think it's 6 or something.
