Kids are a responsibility as well as a blessing. Sometimes you feel that they have bound you from doing certain things that you could freely do before and sometimes you find the whole world in their twinkling eyes. I got married to Jennifer 5 years ago and we started our life in a peaceful corner of Woodbridge. I get nostalgic whenever I think of marriage. Jennifer is beautiful and we are happy with each other.
Right after marriage, the first interest of Jennifer was to redecorate our villa. I didn’t object and tried to help her as much as I can. It was kind of annoying for me at that time because we were newly wedded and she was indulged in home decoration. But it what could more be expected from an interior decorator. I let her do whatever she wanted. When she was done with home remodeling after a month I got to see a pleasing change in my home.
Light curtains instead of shades, beautiful use of bold paint colors, new doors which according to her provide infallible electronic door safety in Woodbridge. I was unaware at that time these doors will greatly help us in the future. We celebrated 2 anniversaries in this home and life seemed to be perfect. Both of us were progressing in careers. We used to take holidays at the end of the year and go on vacation. Next year we got Leo in our lives and a new phase of life started.
Jennifer and I were overwhelmingly happy and our dimensions in life took a turn. Previously we were motivated and wanted to work for our lavish lifestyle. Now Leo was our center of attention. We wanted to do everything for him just like many other parents in this world. We planned many things for his future. Days and months started to pass and Leo was growing. When he started crawling Jennifer and I used to be in standby position all the time. He happened to be a very naughty kid and loved to explore home. He used to crawl in the whole house and we decided to get a nanny for him. We were still thinking about hiring a maid or nanny when Leo tried to escape from home.
It was a fine afternoon and he was quietly playing in the lounge when I had to go out to get a few things from the departmental store. I shouted from the lounge and announced that I was leaving. I thought Jennifer would have heard but she was busy on a phone call. I opened the main door and stepped outside. Doors used to shut down automatically but it took few seconds that Leo reached the door. I was completely unaware that he was behind me. He tried to follow me but thanks to Jennifer that she installed an electric door. Our electric doors are heavy and he couldn’t resist the closing force of the door. A moment later a loud cry was heard when I was about to cross the yard. I ran towards the main door and Jennifer ran from the kitchen towards the door. We reached the main gate together and found Leo crying. Thankfully he was fine probably he cried because he failed in his strive to escape from home.
We were still worrisome so got to see the CCTV videos. We were astonished to see that he was silently following me towards the door and I was completely unaware. I realized the importance of the latest electronic door safety in Woodbridge. If there were no electric doors Leo would have definitely reached the main road. We became more careful and decided to automate windows as well because there is a wide balcony in front of our windows installed in the upper portion of our home. I was feeling very guilty because Leo could have got injured. His hand could have injured by the heavy electronic door.
We have to take care of him all the time. Now we are going to celebrate his third birthday and it is easier to deal with him now. He responds to what we say. He answers to what we tell him to do. At least he is not stubborn and accepts what he is told. Things are getting better with every passing day. I cannot forget that day when he was going to go out unknowingly. Technology is condemned by many philosophers and thinkers. They say the world’s advancement has dragged us far from peace and tranquility. It has turned into all-time working robots but now I view it differently. No one invents something new with destructive intentions behind. Technology and gadgets are not our enemies. Our way of using them makes them evil for us. I admire technology and one of its gifts in the form of home automation, electronic doors, and cameras that help me in keeping my kid safe and sound.
