Mommy? Why can't I mess up your desk?

Back when I was naive enough to think I could work from home while caring for Gwen, we rearranged our office to keep baby on one side of the desks and mommy and daddy's computer equipment and junk safely out of the way on the other side. This worked well until Gwen got tall enough to reach the top of the desk and start pulling stuff off!

For a few months, we've pushed our stuff toward the middle of our desks so her little hands couldn't reach but that pretty seriously limited the available real estate on the desktop and we needed another solution.

The answer? Plexiglass! 12 square feet of it!

We attached it to the front of the desks and now Gwen can see us but can't get her hands (and tongue) on our stuff! Pretty clever, huh!

Aww, to bad, I was hoping that this might mean that we get to see Gwen more often at Almaden. ;-( Clever solution though!

Details please! ;-)))
I don't understand what you did exactly, are you sitting in a cage now? And how did you attach it to the desk?? Oh, give us a full shot of the office situation! ;-)

Not an on topic comment at all...but as the mother to a bald child who is obsessed with hair...Is that bangs I am beginning to see Gwen have?? How exciting!!

Very good solution, but I'd also like to see how you attached the plexiglas.

TOO COOL!!! We have a computer room set up with six computers. Since the room was supposed to be a 'dining room' there isn't a door on the entrance to it. So we put up a huge baby gate. So far, that works really well. Very creative of you guys with the plexiglass!

Oh dang, that is hilarious!
Great solution and great picture.
Still chuckling as I head off to the shower, thanks for brightening up my morning.
