uh-oh...

Hey guys, it's me Obadiah. See that door right there? My little brother Malachi just locked himself in there. I was playing in the toy room and Daddy was working on his computer when we heard Malachi crying. There's a little space at the top of the door, so that's how we heard him. We thought we should climb up on the chair and take a look and see what was going on.

I guess he got on the other side of the door and turned the lock so that he couldn't get out. He was pretty upset about it. We kept telling him to turn the little thingy to unlock the door but he couldn't figure it out.










Daddy tried to take the door knob apart with a screw driver but he's never been really good with mechanical stuff so we had to move to "plan B"! Plan B was Dad's idea and I can't say that I was really thrilled with it. His idea was to put me in that tiny little space above the door and see if I could point to the little lock thingy so that Malachi could unlock the door. I tried but Malachi just wasn't getting it. It was pretty scary up there and my leg started falling asleep so I had Daddy get me down quick!!!









OK, now it was time for "plan C". Daddy climbed up the chair and squeezed himself through the little space at the top and hung over the edge to try to help Malachi unlock the door. He couldn't get Malachi to do it, so he hung WAY over the edge and stretched and stretched until he could reach the door knob and unlock it himself. It kind of hurts hanging on the edge like that. Daddy said, "Oh man, that's gonna leave a mark!" He looked pretty silly hanging upside down like that so I took a picture of him! Anyway, we got Malachi out and we're pretty sure he won't be turning the lock on the door any time soon!

ROFL! I am seriously crying with laughter right now! Obadiah, tell your dad that now I know he'll blog anything! This almost beats the time that Lucas was brought home by the police. Your dad will have to ask me about that one.....

Obadiah! You should take more pictures. Preferably incriminating pictures of your dad. You never know when you are going to have to use them.
It was very brave of you to climb up there and try to help your brother. You are such an awesome big brother.

What a good blogger you are Obadiah--never missing the opportunity to take a good picture for the story. Malachi, I know right now you hate the blogging world and you think it's from the Devil. But give it a chance. It's really not that bad even though your dad thought of taking a picture of you crying and scared before he rescued you. It's all about the story.

That is a funny story Obadiah. I am glad that you finally got Malachi out of there. Yay for your dad for rescuing him.

Seems your daddy has hidden that camera far away now ... ;)
