When two hands aren’t enough to keep up with the baby and get your work done, you grab a tool to solve the problem. If you don’t have a tool for the job, you buy one — and if you can’t buy one, you make do and build something. Though it’s a bit strung-together, this impromptu safety barrier also turned out to be baby’s first slick track.
The temporary setup only required a few 2×4’s and some large immovable objects to serve in the critical support roles. The young speed demon on the go — kept safely away from tools and harm — tuckered himself out by the end of lap six. And Dad saved the fifty bucks he would’ve spent on a giant folding gate. This was definitely a win/win.
