2 and 3 Yr Old Ransack Neighbor's Home

I don't even know what to say...

ANDERSON, S.C. -- Two young brothers caused an uproar in Anderson on Friday morning when they wandered away from their home and into a neighbor’s home.
Neighbors and public safety officers launched an intense search after John and Matthew Farrar disappeared from their home.

The boy’s mother called to report the 2- and 3-year-olds missing at about 9:45 a.m. more:

How did they get into her house?

LOL @ the picture of the sunchips, marshmallows and other snacks on the kitchen floor.

That picture gives insight into why I called my younger four my "pamper posse" There were times when I walked out of a room to shortly return to chaos as seen in that picture

Read a different article on this during the night....very brief and mostly about the marshmallows & cookies. It did have me laughing. Until the '2 & 3 yo' aspect kicked in....that's quite young to have thought up such an outing at someone elses home.

But than I see in this article they are the youngest of 4 boys....

Bet mom had a hard time keeping door's/windows locked with 4 sons. My sister has 4 sons and they liked to play outside all the time. At least the two little one's are safe and sound at home now!

Do you think they were hungry? Or just not used to having their pick of goodies and went wild?

that is a cute story now that we know they are safe

well I have 5 sons and this sounds like just another day in the life.
One of my sons told me the other day that they would climb in the neighbors doggie door and eat her cookies and brownies because I never kept anything junky in the house LOL.

So, my advice is buy your own junk food so they don't stray.

LOL - this is what I thought too - sounds about like every 2/3 year old boy I've ever met!

OMG! My house looks exactly like that several times a day. I swear, these could be my boys!

Just this afternoon, one of my twins absconded with the chocolate syrup! Needless to say, I was cleaning out dump trucks filled with chocolate syrup, carpet with chocolate syrup, a chair with chocolate syrup, a comforter with chocolate syrup..... you get the picture!

I've always thought that the reason toddlers are so quick is because they're low to the ground and more aero-dynamic. But I'm more impressed by the fact that they were able to climb to a top bunk to play with stuffed animals. And I bet they chose the neighbor lady because they knew she had the best snacks.

It's a pleasant change to hear about little ones being mischiveous instead of the usual horrifying stuff we hear about. No harm, no foul except for scaring the be-jeepers out of their Mom.

LOL! I just might switch to the 'powdered chocolate', it would definitely be easier to clean up!

I thought it was funny that one of the little boys came out of the house wearing a football helmet. How can they have been so quiet?

Sneaky little boogers.

Lovejac, I have a list of things that I thought I would never say in my life(a sort of journal entry, that I have posted to myspace) . It came from raising so many kids...among the many numbered items on that list is this phrase: Who poured maple syrup on the dog? LOL

OMG! Can you pretty please send me the link to your MySpace. I have been having some rough days lately, your list would help greatly!

My 3 boys, who are normally louder than than a rock concert, can be amazingly quiet when they are wreaking havoc!

Quiet and fast.
I have 2 girls. Don't be mistaken, they have done their fair share of ransacking.

At first look it is funny, but when you think that in some homes a child might get into medications, alcohol, cleaning supplies and things that could be very harmful to them. It could have turned out badly. Sometimes if there isn't a small child around, the house won't be childproof like a home that is prepared for small children. I hope that neighbor locks her doors from now on. The next visitor might not be small children.

I'm glad the children are safe!
I imagine the woman who's house they went to will now be locking her doors before she goes to sleep, having it advertised now how easy it was to gain entry might give someone not so nice some ideas.
I hope the parents of the little boys will get good locks put up high, now that the boys had a fun adventure Imo they'll be wanting to do it again!! I also hope they buy a bunch of goodies to replace the things their boys ruined.

imo, it seems like the best place they could have ended up. It was obviously a kid-friendly home. Had she locked the doors, maybe they would have gotten into the road, a pond, a pool, etc. there are so many places that could have been much much worse. I think the angels were with those little one's.
I have 2 girls & 1 boy. Guess who is the only child to ever walk out of our house alone without me knowing about it? He is 2 years old & he keeps me on my toes. Luckily, I caught him as he was making his way down the back deck stairs. Now, my girls certainly have created their own havoc - but my son is the explorer of the brood. The girls are 4 & 6, and have never thought about walking out of the house. We have childproof locks, but the back door is a slider (a backwards one at that), and cannot be childproofed completely.

I've seen people drill a hole at the top of where the panels overlap and there is this short chain with metal post thingy attached that can be inserted through the two overlapping frames. It prevents the doors from being able to be opened.

So, my advice is buy your own junk food so they don't stray.
One of my sons would walk over to a neighbor's home and ask for a ham sandwich. He told "Mr. Uncle Ronnie" that we didn't eat lunch at my house and he was hungry. Of course we ate! We just didn't buy the "good ham" that Mr. Uncle Ronnie bought! Same child used to walk across the street and beg for cookies and gum because we didn't keep junk food in the house.........of course, no one told me these things for YEARS. So my neighbors thought I forced my babies to fast for lunch and never gave them anything good to eat.
