Today’s lesson: Anchor furniture to the wall of the room your children play in.
That’s the message that the parents of these two toddlers from Utah want every other parent to know – – after watching footage from the nanny-cam installed the boys’ room.
Their mom, Kayli Shoff, told NBC News that she had no idea that her “super rambunctious” toddlers, Brock and Bowdy, had a brush with tragedy while playing in their room.
“We didn’t hear a cry, we didn’t hear a big thud,” Kayli said. “So we woke up, looked at the camera like, ‘What’s going on? Are they still sleeping?’ and we saw [the dresser] was all the way down.”
The boys’ father, Ricky Shoff, wrote on his Facebook page, “We are so grateful for the bond that these twin brothers share. We know Bowdy was not alone in moving the dresser off of Brock. And feel blessed that he is ok.”
This video is really hard to watch; but, thankfully, little Brock was not injured. And it serves as an important lesson to every parent.
