Baby-Proofing Our Woodstove
With the cold weather and first winter for a toddler in the house fast approaching, we have an issue to address:
Since I don’t particularly relish the possible outcome of a running child tripping and meeting a hot wood stove face-on, I think something needs to be done! :-/
To have it big enough to fit around our wood stove, it would end up costing about $240.
* gack *
The other option is this KidCo
one available from CSN Stores. (I need to win one of those gift certificate giveaways whirling around the blogosphere!)
This one would be about $221…we narrowly missed one of these on Craigslist for $120.
We’ll keep watching on Craigslist, I guess, but we may have to resort to buying new since this is something we need to take care of soon, with it getting colder, and we aren’t lighting that wood stove with Katie running around until it’s gated off!
How do you deal with a fireplace or wood stove and little people?
What have you used to keep your kids safe?
