I decided to make hot dogs for my kids last night (I know, really healthy).
So, I put them in the pot, turned it on to to high and walked away.
My kids know better than to touch it, right?
All of a sudden, my three year old SCREAMS.
I jump up, and there she is, holding her hand.
She had put her fingers into the coil on the hot burner.I held it with a cool, wet paper towel for a minute, then put some aloe vera gel on it to help with the sting and held my baby girl for a few minutes, cuddling her, blowing lightly on her three injured fingers.
I feel like such a failure.
I should have known that she would touch the stove.
Santimommy would have put a gate all around her kitchen to prevent such a horrible tragedy from happening.
So, someone call CPS on me so that my abused and neglected children can be taken to a new family.
- the end parts are sarcasm, for those of you who don't understand.
I do feel guilty, but it was an accident and I don't feel, of course, that my kids should be taken away.
