Houdini she is not
Well I may not have a child, but I do have a dog... Our guest rooms are in total chaos right now. All of our Christmas decorations are stored in the closets, so rather than uproot Statia and Jason when they get here tomorrow and make their rooms a mess, we're putting everything up right now. Normally I hate to decorate before Thanksgiving, but it seems the only way this year.

We finished about half of it last night, but Claire isn't supposed to go in the back guest bed. Last night instead of closing the door when we wrapped for the evening, I creatively moved all the big bins to where you could walk about 6" into the room until you got around the corner, but you'd have to move the bins to get any further inside than that.

Since I've got up today, Claire has tried about a million different ways to "sneak" back there and figure out a way around all the bins. I haven't said a word -- just watched her quietly from down the hall. She'll walk around and assess the barriers, give up, flop down on the carpet in front of the door and sigh heavily. Then she'll realize I'm not going to "help" her or baby her over it, so she'll slooooowly walk in the computer room or in the living room for dramatic effect, and then "sneak" off back down the hall again a few minutes later to see if things have changed and she can get in there yet. Lather, rinse, repeat. It's freakin' hysterical -- that is SO tripping her out. She can get in, but not get around.

Curses for not being born a cat... There she goes again!

Hehe, so why isn't she allowed in that room? That definitely reminds me of my dogs, though - I can just see her flopping down and sighing just like my cocker spaniel. :)

My Mother's Cocker Spaniel used to do that when we would put this board we have from one of those old particle board desks we had, up in front of the door so she couldn't get it. She'd bounce up and down, looking like she was assessing weither or not she could jump it. Even cuter was when my Doberman would do it. Cause I know for a fact she can jump that if she wanted to. The two of them would just grunt and whine and bounce outside the door, begging to come in so they could get into something.

We don't let her back there because we don't want her shedding on or messing up the guest room bedding. We chose to live with her. Our guests did not. ;-)

Our doggie is so big she just steps over things like that in her way. ;) We aren't "allowed" to decorate for Christmas until after 12/15 (the kid's birthday).
