Amber Alert... Not Really

My kid tried to escape yesterday! Seriously.

Hunter and I had a play date with our friends, Rachel and Cole. The boys are only 4 days apart, so it's so fun to see them play together.

In the middle of our play date, I realized that Cole was in the living room but I hadn't heard Hunter for a couple minutes. So, I got up and looked in the hall, no Hunter. The bathroom door was shut, but I still opened it and checked under the cabinet, since he likes to hide there. No Hunter. Checked the coat closet and the closet under the stairs, still no Hunter. I ran back into the living room and asked Rachel if she'd seen him, nope. We checked in the bathroom again... as I turned around and faced the window, I saw Hunter at the end of the driveway, in the rain, with no shoes on, staring at me through the window with a big grin.

So that means... Hunter has now learned how to open the front door and he was also sneaky enough to close it behind him as well. Lovely.

I ran outside and scooped him up as he giggled. My little boy is a prankster. He knew what he was doing. I'm so thankful that the situation wasn't worse. My heart stopped when I saw him outside because I got to thinking of all the bad things that could've happened, but am thankful they didn't. Lesson learned. I will be going out to get some safety locks for the door handles today.

Here is a picture of my reenactment of the scene:


Here are some pictures of the rest of the afternoon: (Note Hunter has no pants on because they got soaked while he went on his little adventure outside)


  1. That is so scary! Beatrice can open doors, but we keep the front one locked and secure at all times because of what Hunter did!

  2. OMG, I would have flipped out! Thank God it wasn't more serious.

  3. Oh wow! I can imagine...my heart just about stopped just reading it! So glad your little man is ok!

  4. Oh my goodness - that reenactment picture is so awesome!!! Glad Hunter is safe...
