After installing baby gates last weekend, today my dad helped me install locks on some of the cabinets in our kitchen. Charis just started figuring out how to pull open drawers, and she’s definitely drawn to the silver drawer pulls and cabinet handles that we have in the kitchen, so the time had come. The locks create a little bit of a hassle for Joy and I, but the added peace of mind is nice.

I ended up choosing some cool magnetic locks. You mount them inside the cabinet and they are completely invisible with the doors closed. There is a small magnetic “key” that you just hold over the door at the spot where the lock is mounted behind the door and, voila, the door is unlocked. I think they are pretty nifty.
