Easter Mishap

*Post contains affiliate links.

Did you know that just because it’s a holiday doesn’t mean everything goes as planned?

Well it seems like, more often than not, something crazy and out of the norm happens on a special day.  Holidays… birthdays… some kind of DAY other than a normal one that’s for sure.

My son still sleeps in his crib with him only being one and I guess he gets curious sometimes. With my previous post, you know that my kids share a room.

So, on Easter morning we kind of took our time waking up before actually getting up, to get ready for church.

My husband and I heard my son wake up not too long after us and he starts talking and blabbering.  It’s normal for us to give him a few minutes to wake up completely while in his crib and not worry so much about getting him immediately.

Well with my daughter being pretty much beside him, since she decided to sleep on her little Sofia the First fold out couch, we didn’t think much of it when he was just in there talking and carrying on.  I assume he was trying to wake his sister up, because that’s just what siblings do :).

I had drifted back off to sleep, since my husband was up, when out of nowhere we hear my son start crying and then the crying became worse to almost a panic.  It was odd since he had only been up blabbering for maybe 3 to 4 minutes.

My husband jumps up in a panic and runs to their room, I hear the scurrying around on the monitor so I head in there to see what the issue is.

I find my sons leg thru the crib bars and my husband hold him trying to get his leg out.  I notice this is going to be a two-person job, so I tried getting his leg thru.

It wasn’t working.

Then my husband goes into some kind of a hulk mode, I guess, because he says, “hold him”, ok? So, we switch spots so he can try.  I was thinking, ok he’s going to get it in a different angle and try.


This guy starts putting the bars apart.  These are wooden flat panels for the ‘bars’ so it’s not just the normal round ones.  I heard cracking and started to panic a little myself.

I grab my sons leg and pull it threw so my husband doesn’t break the crib. Don’t get me wrong, I was worried about my kids’ leg, but I was also thinking… if he breaks this crib then my son has nowhere to sleep!

Thankfully, he pulled slightly enough while I pulled on my son’s leg at the same time, to get it out without messing up the crib.

After thinking about the situation, I assume my son was either trying to get my daughters attention by talking and kicking at her threw the crib, which he couldn’t reach her anyways. Or he was trying to reach her Our Generation Ice Cream truck, that sits beside his crib.

Either way it was a panic driven start to a wonderful and more event filled Easter.

If you have any ideas on how to keep a kids’ limbs from going in between the bars in a crib, please shoot your ideas down below in the comments.

I would love to hear your ideas or how you keep all the parts to your kid inside their crib.
