Sunday 21st Feb 2010 - Cai took advantage off a moments lack of attention to run into the bathroom and lock the door.
On Saturday Cai locked the bathroom door, normally we make sure the lock is closed as Cai can close it but has not yet been able to open it again, luckily until now we have been inside with him when he has played with the lock, however this time he has mischief on his mind. I had to watch helplessly from the balcony window on some steps. When I saw him playing with the taps, he filled the bowl and brushed his teeth I ran downstairs and switched the water off I didn't want him to scald himself. I then watched as he put a towel followed by the rugs and then all the washing into the toilet bowl, after slamming the seat up and down several times.
He put clothes in and out of the bowl as if washing them, he tried the lock a few times but when he tried flushing the toilet I had visions of a towel totally blocking it and then he started playing with the cleaning fluids - all the time I had been debating whether to break the window or try and force the lock. I decided breaking the glass was too dangerous as it might cut him, removing the putty was an option but in the end I thought maybe I could force the lock, luckily the whole frame came apart and wit minimal damage.
life is always interesting with Cai, in the meantime he is doing better at nights now, its no longer worrying when the alarms go off just tiring, however since he has returned from the hospital he is very hyperactive and as the only change is the oxygen at night we wonder if that is the cause.
Holidays over now though and back to work and school, the weather was nice today after a long cold spell and the sun on your face is a good tonic and already we are looking forward to the spring
