Locked in...

We have a child lock on the outside of the office doors, to lock the kids out of the office. Spencer is the only child that can unlock it so far. 
This morning Spencer and Addi wanted to make copies of their faces. We went in the office so they could. Collier came in with us and Maloree stayed out. I didn't think anything about her staying out, I figured she'd just play with the toys in the front room. 
When we tried to come out of the office I couldn't open the door. I couldn't figure out why for a second. Just as I was figuring it out in my mind, I looked at Maloree's cute face on the outside of the glass office doors saying, "I locked it."  
She tried for all she was worth and couldn't get it unlocked. 
I called Carl to make sure he'd left for work like he had said he was and wasn't by chance outside working on something quick before work. Sure enough he was at his office. I called my neighbor thinking I would give her the garage code and she could get us out. She didn't answer. I knew Aunt Juanita was in our basement, but I knew she didn't feel well so I didn't want to wake her Incase she actually was asleep. Hence, I couldn't send Maloree down to get her or I knew Mals would wake her up. I asked Maloree to get my cell phone for me so I could make a long distance Juanita's cell to see if she was awake. 
Maloree very obediently got me my phone, slid it under the office doors for me, and I called Juanita. Thankfully she was awake and answered. She laughed and came upstairs to let us out. She of course took a few pictures first. 

Oh how I love these babies of mine!!!  I truly do feel so blessed to have them and Carl. I am very thankful for this beautiful, crazy, exhausting, messy, perfect life that I have. I'm so thankful and blessed to know without a doubt that I have a Father in Heaven who knows me and loves me. I'm so thankful for the blessings and trials that he sees fit it give me.
