Should I be worried about Carla?

Consider the evidence:

Carla with an (empty) wine bottle

Carla snaffles a can of Fosters

We have a kitchen cupboard that has a child lock on, where we keep various things including a stash of Peroni. If Carla manages to get anywhere near that cupboard when it’s open, what’s the first thing she goes for? No, not the sweets. No, not the cereal. Yes, you guessed it – the beer.
It’s one thing going for an empty wine bottle – she could at least smell that and work out what it was. But the sealed cans / bottles of beer? How does she know? It’s not like I drink a lot, and I rarely drink in front of her. I thought I wouldn’t have to contend with this until she hit her teens!
