Dear Loving Child of Mine.

If you lock me out of my own bedroom one more time, I'm going to be very, very upset.

(Ugh. Anyone know how to pick a lock? I tried everything. I might have to call a locksmith. Wait till Hubs hears about this.)

ETA: Got it unlocked. *Sigh* My kid is smarter than me. And I'm an awful lock-picker.

Gah. Maybe you could remove the knob?

It depends on the lock. If it is one of those simple, push button types, just straighten out a paper clip, stick it in the little hole in the doorknob, and push. If it has a key, slide a piece of paper under the door and then push the key out from the outside and slide the paper back under. If it's the sort that has a separate latch, you're on your own!

Is the kid on the other side? If so, candy works well.

When I was little I locked my mom out of the house while she was on the back porch hanging laundry. She was in her bathrobe and had to climb in through the cellar window. I tell you this to make you realize that things can always be worse.

remove the knob- remove the lock- remove the kid-enjoy a little mommy time out- seems like those are the options!

Uh oh. Just wait to see what he does when he's 14!

My sisters and I locked ourselves in one of our bathrooms so many times (to get away from each other, when we were slightly older) that my parents kept the "key" (a straight piece of metal the thickness of a paper clip but not bendable) permanently on top of the door frame outside the bathroom. We couldn't reach it, but they could.

My then-two-year-old son locked the bathroom door, once with him inside, twice with nobody inside--but that house only had one bathroom, and I needed to use it, even if he didn't. I finally learned the paperclip trick and sometimes it worked, always with some effort.
