Won’t happen to us..right?

13 Sep

See, it’s shit like this that has me thinking, alternatively, “of course, this kind of stuff won’t ever happen to us” and “holy shit, people have emergency eye wash kits in their house?!”

People laugh and tell us that’s why you don’t start with a 2-year-old, you start with a baby, and they laugh and laugh and laugh.

    Hmm, although blogger mom clearly wasn’t screaming so frantically…she was able to stop and take a picture for her website.

    Awfully susquitious, if you ask me. Nail polish? I’m not impressed. And who needs eye rinse when you have 2 faucets in your house with running water?

    My my, aren’t we feeling safe and secure tonight…I was going to dig up the statistics on children losing eyes in freak nail polish accidents, but alas this was not Google-friendly. But instead, let me send you to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Go for document 243, the Super Sitter! My favorite part? “Drowning is a silent killer. When a child drowns, a baby sitter won’t hear a cry or even a splash. Drownings can happen very quickly.” Yay!

    And of course, the mustache on p. 15.
