I’m so stressed out my head is pounding right now. I just came back into the house from off the roof.
Emmett ran full force, right into the window in Elliott’s bedroom. Thankfully, it was the windows I fixed last winter, when Emmett did the same thing.
I don’t understand why he does this. My thoughts were centering around sensory related issues but who knows.
When I replaced the original glass pane the last time, I used plexy glass for the repairs. It was way more expensive than glass, but it more than paid for itself today.
If Emmett had done this again with a glass pane, he could have sustained very serious injuries.
Luckily, the plastic absorbed most of the impact and simply buckled and partially popped out of place. Despite the the plastic absorbing the impact, he still could have gone through the 2nd story window.
The other saving grace was that the storm window was already down so it stopped him from completely going through.
Elliott and Gavin were screaming and I raced upstairs, expecting the worst. My heart hasn’t slowed down yet and my blood pressure is through the roof, but everyone is OK.
The only thing I can think to do is put furniture in front of the windows. The problem with that is Emmett would likely climb said furniture and play with the top of the window. That would be equally, if not more dangerous.
Any ideas? I completely open to any that doesn’t involve putting Emmett in a cage. 😉
