This is why you never, ever give your kids the keys

Sara has been letting Evie use the keys to unlock the door. It seemed like a good idea (Evie likes to do it, and it’s one more skill to learn) until the other day.

Quickly, before Sara could react, Evie and Ollie slipped inside and locked the door behind them. Sara was stuck pounding on the door while the kids danced and yelled, “Kids party!!” for a full three minutes. Her threats and bribes were no use, until she finally came up with, “If you don’t open this door right now, I’m not going to share my birthday cake with you!” Suddenly, the door was opened.

Moral of the story, never give your 5 year old and 2 year old the run of the house, but if they manage it anyway, birthday cake is your nuclear option.
