My O'Shawnnessey who will be 2 years old around July we think, soon has started in the last few months to get into the garbage in the bedroom. He has a thing about qtips! He turns over all the garbage and pull everything out of it looking for them and plays with them all over the house. So I stopped putthing them in there. I'm going to get one of those step on cans so he won't be able to get at them, but I'll be able to start putting garbage in the bedroom again.
