I got a new garbage can, for Christmas. The best thing I've gotten all year. I'm afraid, that we had all become use to having the garbage can on the counter or on the table, to keep Jake out of it. It's was awful, but there was no place else to put it, that Jake couldn't get in it. I'm so happy, he can't get it open. YEA! It does have a foot petal, but It's kinda hard to push so I'm sure hope he won't be able to open it that way.
