well, the munchkin just got his first real lesson in what Hot is.

I'd out a hot oven rack outside on the lawn to get it out of the way (you'd think by now I'd remember to remove it BEFORE I turn the oven on want I want to use the big dutch oven)

Didn't quite notice Oliver going outside soon after.

The scream was heartbreaking to say the least.

Trying to make your almost 2yr old understand that he has to hold his hand under the running water to help make it better is a bit of a challenge. The icypole and icecubes and a bottle helped.

Luckily it wasn't a huge burn but still not an experience I ever want to repeat.

I can so relate to that one! It's not nice. When Conrad was about 7 or 8 and we went camping we kept telling him to stop playing with the fire (poking sticks in). All of a sudden he stopped doing it and walked away - we thought we had finally won. Wasn't a nice feeling several hours later when we went to get him ready for bed and took his shoes off to discover a huge blister on the top of his foot where a hot coal had landed. We had to explain to him that if you hurt yourself when you are doing something you shouldn't be doing you still have to tell an adult so they can help you! It was a hard lesson but a mistake he has not made again!
