New Invention: The Gerber Guard



















This week Kaelin found out how to turn the TV on and off without using the remote. At first it was no big deal because she only did it every once in a while. But, Saturday, we were watching a show and she walked up to the TV and proceeded to turn it off, then on, then off, then on...over and over and over again. She would not stop!

So, my husband tried to put a piece of scotch tape over the buttons. "Let's see you try it now, midgie (we call her that sometimes)!" he said. Kaelin looked at him and walked over to the TV and ripped the tape off like it was nothing and then pressed the button on and off again.

Hubby got a little MacGuyver on us then. He took one of the Gerber baby food lids and put it over the buttons and then used mailing tape to tape it firmly in place. Kaelin got it off once, but when he used more tape, she just gave up. So, if you're ever in this situation...remember, try the "Gerber Guard!"

Now that is a creative solution! Blake just figured out which button was the power button today so we are going to have to figure something out soon too!

Very Clever! I am not looking forward to those days! I tagged you- not sure if you did it already. Momnesia in the house.

She's already showing signs of needing a Gerber Guard 2.0 to be installed soon...
