K IS FOR keys pinched from hand­bags

Living and Loving - - FAMILY INSPIRATION -

There’s an in­ex­pli­ca­ble force that at­tracts a crawl­ing baby to what­ever it is she shouldn’t have, so be proac­tive to keep your home safe when you have vis­i­tors. Whisk Aunt Sue’s hand­bag off the car­pet when she sits down to eat her mince pie, and tell her, “I’ll pop your bag up here so Is­abel doesn’t rum­mage through it.” Put drinks on the win­dowsills rather than the cof­fee ta­ble and be clear that you’re mov­ing it so it’s out of reach. Wrap up a big card­board box, that’s too tall for your child to reach into, in fes­tive pa­per and sit it in the cor­ner on Christ­mas Day, so there’s a safe place to stash presents and all the rem­nants of un­wrap­ping.
