I have an electric stove with the metal coils. Baby Gurl decided to touch said coil while a pot was on the stove heating water for her Ramen! What possessed her to do this, I don’t know. But never again will I take for granted that my kids just know not to do something simply because it’s common sense.
I believe common sense doesn’t exist for the kiddos – all kiddos – not just mine. And I believe it has nothing to do with intelligence – the common sense button just does not exist for the wee ones.
What you see is her sitting on the den couch with her finger (left hand – she’s left handed) in a bowl of cool water. I gave her some Tylenol and a couple of hours later, she felt better.
“It still hurts sometimes, Mom”
I know, baby doll. It’ll feel better soon.
Oh…and remember the Haiku that I royally messed up last week? I’m here to do it again! This week’s theme: favorite gadget. (A coffee pot is a gadget, right?)
Oh, Mr. Coffee!
Legal stimulants galore.
You awaken me.
