I am a careful parent. (but not one of those obnoxious safety-freak moms)
I don't let my kids stick things in electrical sockets or give them WHOLE grapes that they might choke on. I don't fill the tub too full or let them run around with scissors in their hands and forks in their mouths.
But today I threw caution to the wind...
I was FULLY aware of what Bianca was up to.
I was making dinner as she took those scratchy, annoying bags out of the drawer one at a time.
The "mom" in me thought "hmm, those bags are a potential choking/suffocating hazard...I should remove her from the situation and childproof that drawer"
But I didn't.
I just let her play in the death trap while I finished dinner.
And she was entertained by those dumb grocery sacks for 30 minutes.
And I made a delicious dinner without a tired one year old attached to my hip.
So worth it...
