We had storms last night that knocked out power for a few seconds. So dh had put flashlights out on the coffee table. Now this morning.
I come into the living room with ds a realize dh left 2 AA batteries on the table fully in ds reach. I told him next time put them away because they were a choking hazard. He then told me it was the job of the person who brought ds into the room to take care of them and make sure there are no choking hazards.
He said that putting the batteries next to the flashlights on the table made perfect sense because he then knew where they were. I asked why he couldn't put them into the batter drawer, he would know where they were BUT the flashlights already had fresh batteries.
I was getting angry by this point because he was very insistent that the batteries were not his responsibility. Then compared him getting a hold of a battery to breaking his kindle. I'm not sure how they equate whatsoever since a swallowed battery is deadly while ds breaking his kindle is simply annoying.
The reason I was so upset is because ds has gotten a battery into his mouth before, licking dh caught it in time ( I was not home). So I don't understand why he would needlessly leave them out.
So really am I overreacting? :(
