Baby Door Bouncer
The old saying that the simplest machines work the best is certainly evident in a baby door bouncer. Having a baby door bouncer was a daddy’s best friend when I was raising my two sons who are now in elementary and middle school.
I recall one particular occasion that was probably the worst day of my career as a parent of a young “crawler.” That is to say, my oldest son was not yet even a toddler. Oh, he was standing occasionally by himself and often with help, but, he was still in crawl mode for moving from place to place.
Back to that day. Just when a guy plans to have an easy day. I thought I had it all figured out. I would get home from doing some shopping and running errands, of course, taking my oldest son with me. I had to, because, my wife was out of town on some private consulting work. Yes, when I arrived home, I was going to feed him, walk the dog, feed myself, and put my son in the “safe zone.” The “safe zone” was our living room. We had it baby-safe and barricaded all around. I would put him down to play and kick back and enjoy watching some TV.
So, upon arriving, I put him in his high chair upon which he began wailing. As soon as I opened the door to put the dog out, he shot out between my legs. My son starts crying louder as I snatch him up to go and fetch the dog back inside. I had to get the dog because he was like another child to my wife. As I ran after the dog holding my son, my son got angrier and angrier, crying louder. Finally, I was able to get the dog back inside, but, my son would not stop crying.
He only stopped crying when I put him in his bouncer seat. Then I was able to feed him, let him play more in the baby door bouncer seat, and eventually take a nap. What a day. These bouncers are such a lifesaver for when we need to relax, clean, or cook dinner. They also help your children work out their feet.
