In a tropical country, you are lucky if you have centralized air conditioning system installed in your house. Apparently, this is not the case for most people. We can’t afford to have the a/c running 24/7. Electricity doesn’t come cheap these days.
When Jack Jack sweats, he sweats like crazy. Even with the air conditioning turned on. Imagine how much more he sweats if there’s none. We can only get by with the use of an electric fan.
The problem with fans is that it is not designed to be baby- or kid-friendly. Those little hands can always reach inside those blades. We have an industrial fan! Jack Jack has tried many times inserting his fingers through the fan, perhaps, because of curiosity. Thankfully, he has not injured himself.
I knew there has to be some solution to this dilemma. I will never forgive myself if those blades would ever get to touch Jack Jack’s fingers.
Once again, the power of research has paid off. A friend told me I can buy these nets from the Japan Store for the cheap price of Php88. Just wash it regularly since it gathers dust pretty easily.
Now, I can cross that off my worry list.
UPDATE #1 (September 17, 2009): I’m not sure what happened exactly but my housekeeper washed it. The garter became lose making it easier for Jack Jack to pull it off the fan. My Mom changed the garters just today. Thanks Ma!
UPDATE #2 (September 24, 2009): Somehow Jack Jack’s fingers has found it’s way inside another fan without the net. We had to move things around the house and the fan came from another part of the house that he doesn’t go to. Thus, no baby-proofing. He got a scratch on his right ring finger and a bit of a shock. As usual he would run away from the scene of the crime like he’s got nothing to do with it. He didn’t cry even when I poured alcohol on it. Oh, well…
