Not many of us think about securing our furniture to the wall, especially a low dresser, but I will be. I came across this very sad story today and it hit really close to home. Our daughter will be 3 soon and our son is starting to pull up in everything. Please read this moms story.
Have tissues ready.
I cried the entire time I was reading this. Sister Bear also gets up before I do, turns on the TV and eats her cereal. This could have been or could be us. I don't want that to happen. I don't want it to happen to anyone, that is why I am sharing her story with you.

Once we figured out that we were doing it didn't take us much time. The straps we got had 8 in a package, enough to do 4 pieces of furniture for $6. I encourage you to please go purchase some and do this as soon as possible. $6.. that's it. Do it for you, your children, for this mother, for peace of mind.

I feel so much better knowing that my furniture is secure. of course these straps are not there to replace adult supervision. But we can not watch our children 24/7, so these are there to help.
Have you secured your furniture? Please leave a comment an let me know!
