Childproof? I think not!

I am considering a lawsuit against Safety 1st and their "childproof" latches. Yesterday, I was working on organizing our hallway linen closet. No worries, the boys were playing in the living room and kitchen area. But, that's okay, because all the cabinets are childproofed, right? They must be only childproofed if you have one baby/toddler at a time. I was so caught up in my Martha Stewart moment of organization I didn't realize just how long it had been quiet. I stand and listen. I hear nothing. That's scary! I walk into the kitchen. My two little monsters have ripped a drawer open and ripped off the childproof latch. How? Who knows! There they sit in the middle of the kitchen floor after dumping out 3 boxes of snacks and crackers, eating with delightful smiles on their faces. Oh and in Jorden's right hand? The screw and latch from the cabinet.

(I would add pics but I left my camera at a friend's house.)

Maybe they make heavy duty child proof latches or how about a baby gate to keep them out of the kitchen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I remember a certain child that got into the cabinets and ate a whole banana, peel and all, but I won't mention names!!!!!!!
