three year olds can do things like this?!

Three year olds are all insane. They are mad as a box of frogs.

BlueDragonfly Thu 07-Aug-08 12:08:32

<<goes off to check locks on front door>>

Luck, lucky little boy to get home safely.

Just goes to show, though, there are more good people in the world than bad.

WaynettaSlob Thu 07-Aug-08 12:10:14

how the hell did he get out of the house? All our door handle / locks / keys etc are way too highfor even my tall almost 5 yo to get out.

ChopsTheDuck Thu 07-Aug-08 12:11:04

why on earth were the keys in his reach?! Ours are hidden away, I have two three year olds and it's like fort knox round here.

LynetteScavo Thu 07-Aug-08 12:12:23

But 3 year old watch where you hide things....then go and get a chair.

Aww, shock but that is rather sweet too.

Glad he came to no harm.

can your kitten open the front door codshock

wonderstuff Thu 07-Aug-08 12:21:02

Wow, shock a mile and a half is quite a way for a 3yo! My 9mo has the danger and excitement gene, gonna have to watch her like a hawk when she starts walking

my 3 yr old can reach keys and door handles

she would wake me at 3am and expect a lift to the shop though grin

No, my 10yo doesn't get pocket money either!

LynetteScavo Thu 07-Aug-08 12:40:07

TBH,if I were the parents I would have kept this out of the paper! hmm

Pinkjenny Thu 07-Aug-08 12:48:55

Hmmm do you think this is quite accurate. Very clever three year old to be able to find the key, reach to unlock the door etc etc. hmm

Maybe 3 year olds deserve more credit than I give them!!

Not sure I'd want this in the paper either!!!

This is a great story. Thank goodness it turned out as it did and he is safe. Reminds me of my friends who awoke one Saturday morning, heard a funny noise and looked out the bedroom window to see their car driving very slowly down the drive. The husband ran out of the house and caught up with it. Inside were their three boys aged 7, 5 and 3. The 7 year old was driving and when asked where the hell they were going replied 'Chessington World of Adventure'!

My ds's would be far too lazy to walk 1.5 miles for a sweet (even ds2 who has an incredible sweet tooth..)!

zippitippitoes Thu 07-Aug-08 13:03:05

he looks rather like my dgs and yes i can imagine it happening

its the day they can do something you didnt realise they could or would isnt it

bright kid

i think

SheSellsSeashellsByTheSeashore Thu 07-Aug-08 13:05:23

my nearly 5 y o would do that and has tried to escape the house in the night to get to nana's house though, not the shop. luckily the dog alerted me to what she was attempting. she was about two at the time shock

i dont think she would take her pocket money she would just expect the shop to give her the sweets <spoilt princess alert>.

all keys are kept out of her reach on a very high nail above the door frame. which she does try to reach with a stool but cant. our front door is also alarmed so it makes a racket whenever anyone opens it.

poor parents and what a lucky little boy. must have been an awfull shock being woke up by the police telling you your child had been wandering the streets.

That's what I thought too grin. What a bright and resourceful boy, he'll go far.
