we learned the hard way last night. my 2 ye old DD managed to open a bottle of neon blue children's advil liquid medicine and dump the whole damned thing out! I KNOW. I had secured the cap because I always double and trple check that shit! lol.

now I've learned my lesson. I really thought it was out of her reach, but two year olds will find a way won't they?

Yes so now its as high as it can go in the cabinet so they cant get the bottles I have to use a stool to get any medicine down.  I also have a child proof lock on the cabinet. They can open the cabinet still even with the child proof lock but it makes noise so I know when anyone is going in there.

Oh yes.  My daughter could open them; the dog can open them.  I'm the only one in the house who CAN'T open a child-proof cap.

 Shoot I wish one of my kids could. Then they could get it open for me. I have pretty severe arthritis (since childhood) and have the hardest time opening those bottle. I pretty much don't have a lot of bottle laying around that they try to get into though or maybe its just that they have no interest in the bottles.

I kept them locked up when she was little.  She never tried to get into them by herself, but I wasn't willing to take any chances.  Hell, my dog can open a childproof cap in no time flat.  lol  I have to be more careful with the dog than I ever did with my daughter.  lol
