Because lord knows I’ve got a toddler of my own and I’m well aware of how easy it is to be distracted for a second, but really? I know this story is a teensy bit old, but I can’t help myself.
When I’m watching the Munchkinette at home, I’m way more relaxed about it than when we are out in public. I am well aware of danger zones and things she can get into. But when we are somewhere else, I put hawks to shame. She doesn’t take a step without me right behind her.
So, I’m thinking that if my toddler is at someone’s place of work, where there are a million things she could get into, not to mention an open TIME-LOCKED SAFE, I would tend to be a little more watchful than normal.
I’m not trying to minimize the obvious distress caused to the toddler and her mom, but for this mother, I’m going to advocate the use of a leash.
And if this family gets money for exclusive story rights or a made-for-television movie, then I will know for sure there is no justice in this world.
