My 4 year old stuck a Q-tip in the jar candle I had burning in the bathroom, set it on fire, and then threw it in the garbage last night. This set the garbage can on fire, which in turn set the shower curtain on fire. I was up stairs putting away clothes and she took a good little while to tell me what she had done. I learned not to trust a smoke alarm. I am rigorous about testing them and changing the batteries out...I change them when I change the clocks, so within the month...and they didn't go off til I was trying to put out the fire. The linoleum is melted, the side of the tub is melted...not to mention it could have KILLED US ALL.
I cannot believe she did that...we have been over and over not touching them...she JUST had fire safety at school and visited the fire department.
Guess she loved it so much she wanted to bring the field trip home with her. OMG.
SCARED ME TO DEATH.
