I can't believe I let that happen.
Thank god i came in when I did and it didn't spread past the stack of papers.
Getting covers for the stove knobs today. Holy shit I am rattled.

Woo my first featured post !!
I am tired of explaining so I'm just going to add it to the op.
I was organizing my file folders (old bills, contracts etc) on the counter. I was placing things to my left on the stove that I was going to shred. I don't have much counter space, and there was a rack of dishes to my right.
My two kids were in the living room with the tv on loud and playing/wrestling. My phone rang and it was an important business call I had been waiting for. So I took it outside on the porch off the living room
I did peek through the window twice an both times my son was in the kitchen. When I came back in a chair was pushed over to the stove and the papers were on fire. He must have done it right when I went outside and then returned to playing.
Hope that clears things up. I'm not a hoarder and I don't leave my kids alone all the time.
Thanks for sharing your stories to the non bashers
