I apologize that I haven’t started my Look Back and Laugh Linkup like I thought I would. I did want to share a little “Look Back and Laugh” story that happened to me last week though.
Here is the scene. Our bathroom has two doors. One goes to the master bedroom and the other goes to the hall way. While I was taking a shower someone locked the door. I don’t know who the perpetrator was or what in the world their motive was, but if we had surveillance cameras I bet we’d see a curious little two year old turning a lock and walking out slamming the door behind him.
Unaware of this, I tried getting into my room from the bathroom and from the hall only to find both doors locked and no one in there to unlock it. I panicked. I know you can pick an interior lock with a bobby pin or something like that, but I have tried that before when this has happened and could never get it to work. J has been the only one able to unlock these door knobs.
I figured J could walk me through it if he were available, but guess what? MY PHONE WAS IN MY ROOM! So there I was wrapped up in a towel with no access to my clothes whatsoever. I pretty much freaked out. I had access to all the other rooms, but I needed my clothes. I could ask one of my apartment neighbors to use their phone, but HELLO! I’m in a towel. Is this like a messed up Desperate Housewives episode or what? Maybe I could fit into Z’s clothes, but come on, he’s 7 and I am pregnant. Not. Going. To. Happen.
J wasn’t due home for several hours and to make matters worse for once in my life I had plans. A baby sitter was coming over so that I could go out to a show with my sister in law. What in the world would you do in that situation?
Well, now that I think you are feeling how I was at that moment I can share the miracle that happened. Although my computer had also been in my room, I just happened to bring it into the kitchen shortly before my shower. When I realized that I texted J (which I can do via iMessage on the laptop) but he was in school so I watched a few youtube videos about lock picking (and was again unsuccessful) but eventually J was able to text me back and walk me through it.
So it all worked out in the end, but my heart was POUNDING. Next time something like that happens I better wake up and realize it was all a dream!
LOL, What a dilemma. I hate locked doors anyway. It’s a thing with me.
WOW!! This WAS a dilemma for you Natalie! Glad it all worked out – and hope you enjoyed the show with your sis-in-law!!
Yes I did. The funny thing is it was “I Love Lucy” live and this was totally a Lucille Ball moment!
Hysterical and quite a predicament! 😉 I could almost picture it! Too funny!
I’ve had a recurring dream all my life about being in school naked. Lord have mercy – you lived it. xo
I’ve had those kind of dreams too! I knew I had privacy at the moment, but I had no clue how I was going to get out of that mess. Ahhhh. Also, the show I went to was “I Love Lucy” Live which was perfect since that was such a Lucille Ball thing to do.
Fabulous! You are not the first naked Mama locked out of her own bedroom!
Well, that definitely makes me feel better about it!
I am totally laughing out loud!! I had to read that to my husband because it’s so funny most definitely a look back and laugh moment!
I need to start writing down moments like these because this is such a fun link up!! :))
Yes! Please do. I hope to start the link up next month!
I’m so sorry that you got locked out of your room! Maybe it’s time to change the knobs around so that you can still access your room ;).
Yeah…. except let’s just say with three kids ages 7 and under there are times you don’t want little ones to have complete access to barge in at any moment of the night. At least now I know how to unlock it on my own if it ever happens again.
Hahaha! I could totally see this happening to me!! I love J’s response! 😀 Glad you got it figured out!
A round of applause for your post.Really thank you! Will read on…
