Nic vs. The Locked Door

Locks on doors are generally supposed to keep unwanted visitors out.

I work from home...and for a few hours a day, I have all three kids home with me. For the most part, my 13 (almost 14) year old son helps with Nic (the two year old). They lock me in my office and allow me to finish my day.
One day recently, I turn around - while on a conference call - and see Nic. I quickly put the call on mute and raise my eyebrows pointedly at my mischievous little boy.
"How did you get in here Nic?"
He held up his hand and said "I open the door, mommy!"

In his hand? A shiny new penny.
A perfect fit.

My little man has learned how to open the interior doors in our apartment.
Privacy for all is now a thing of the past.
