Zelda: *uses scissors to cut duct tape* Hey, why am I in Gary's room? Oh, this machine is shiny! *presses button and the machine turns invisible* Uh, that obviously did nothing. *opens window and looks outside*
The next day...
Charlie: *walks in* Zelda, where are you? Are you hiding?
Helmet: AHH! The window is open and the duct tape is cut!
Me: *lightbulb appears over head* I have an idea. *goes on Pixie's computer and pulls up WikiHow article*
Article: If your baby is thinking about running away, or dreams of running away, lock their door at night and put a chair in front of it. Make sure to get soft, gentle straps so your baby stays in bed. Strap their flippers down very carefully, and strap in their feet. Put a soft pink strap across their tummy, and put up gates or barriers around their cribs. Do not do this with babies that are under control, only babies who sleepwalk or run around your igloo at night. If they cry or scream a lot, get them a binky . Open their beak very carefully and set it inside. Put in a gentle glue so the binky stays in place. Now your child won't annoy you, and they are incapable of speech or crying. Take it out for meal times only. Do this for a week or two until your toddler knows better. Long term use can cause damage. Also, set rules.You might be afraid your toddler will run away if you do this, but this will protect your toddler, your privacy, and maybe even your sanity. Don't let your toddler go into your room, they will break something sooner or later. If they threaten to run away, don't give in. Take all of their things that they pack and lock their luggage in a closet. Lock your toddler in their room and strap them to a chair so they can't run away. Remember though, it must be a soft pink strap or the toddler will feel intimidated and maybe even cry for help. Stuff a cloth in their beak.
Pixie: It's me. Gary and I are coming home because Gary accidentally ate his coffee cup in his sleep and the doctor says that the only cure was to go back to our base and eat one out of 7384 cookies. So, can you guys make 7384 cookies?
Helmet: Umm, we already have. And we have one left.
Helmet: Bye *hangs up* Guys, Pixie's coming home!
Me: I can't spend another minute with this-
Pixie walks in.
Pixie: Why is Zelda in soft pink straps? Did you guys read that WikiHow article that tells you how to take care of a baby who wants to run away?
Charlie: Yes, why?
Pixie: Look at number 729527491 on the list.
Me: *reads list* Do not follow instructions on the WikiHow article that tells you how to take care of a baby that wants to run away. The next time after the next time she wakes up, she will destroy everything in the building...
