I've talked about the perils of baby proofing twice before already. Once at my own home and once at Grandpa's baby deathtrap in the Hamptons. I had forgotten that I had actually captured our issues on camera. Here's a video of Mazzy at 6 months saying "hell to the no" to a socket cover from Safety 1st. Please keep in mind this was not after weeks of careful observation, expert plotting and weighing of executional techniques— this was on her very first try. That's why I was standing idly by with the camera thinking: We've got this covered. While Mazzy was thinking: Silly, Mommy— You Aint Got Nothing!

We would have been better off with this ingenious baby proofing idea from Parent Hacks. Covering the socket with a band aid looks way more effective.
