okay last friday I was supposed to have Sverra for the day she is 12 months and he mom called me frantically saying she has to rush her to the hospital cause she got hot water on her?! and she would call me to up date me when she got home. So I called later that day and no one was home and they were not answering the pone so I called saturday and still nothing then sunday afternoon I got a call from her mom Kristin telling me she was alright and had 1st degree burns! she then tols me the story of how she got them.....every morning when Kristen is getting ready for work she sits Sverra in the bathroom sink and lets her play with a blush brush while she is putting on her make-up and such well they have the nobs that just swing from side to side on their sink and she has never turned the hot water tank down...recipe for disaster if you ask me... so as she was getting ready Sverra reached over and turned the tap the hot water came on instantly and burned her. I have her today and she has blisters and scabs down her tummy and side and down her leg her sholder isn't to bad just red! As she was telling me this story I had this big urge to ask her where her common sence was!! of course I didn't but really! When I am getting ready in the morning...if Dillan is even up...He is playing with his toys and not in the bathroom even if he was in the bathroom there would be no way I would put him in the sink!!?? I dunno maby I am just over reacting, I know it could happen to anyone but I still can't understand why she would put her in the sink and not on the floor or something?? and why wasn't the hot water tank turned down?? I am just glad she is okay and it was not any worse. Where has the common sence gone??

I didnt think a baby could even fit in the bathroom sink....the sink we have here wouldnt be big enough for a newborn, but STILL i would NEVER even THINK about it!! I've heard of giving your baby a bath in the kitchen sink, but they are constantly attended to.
