I went to 7-11 this morning to get some milk, I had my two year old with me and the weather is horrible and didn't want to take her out. I live in a tiny town and there was no one else at the store, and I left the doors locked and ran in for less than a minute. I feel like I am defending myself, but I also don't think I really did anything wrong.. LOL
Would you leave her, or get her out?

Wow! are you really that lazy!?! and before you say your not, lets face it... that was the MAIN reason why you didn't take her in. It was just easier to go in without her. What in the world made you think that, that was ok? It takes but a minute for your whole life to get turned upside down. Next time you feel like taking the easy way out, think about your daughter in a dangerous place... All because mommy wanted to take the easy road to go down.

How is this so different from being in a different room in your house than your child? I mean, anything could happen while your child is iin the other room.....

The house could catch on fire while you are in a different room and could be blocked from you getting in there to save the child. Someone could break in and kidnap you child. Your child could climb something and fall and get hurt. Something could happen to you while you're in another room so you can't get back to your child. Your child could choke on something while you're in the other room. You child could get tangled up in the blinds or drapes and be strangled. Your child could become terrified because you are in the other room. The child could open the door and go outside and you wouldn't know where they went. Of course it's legal to leave your child in a different room, but my point is there are dangers everywhere. Even in you own home. Even if you childproof.
