In the wars again!
I shudder to think how much worse this could have been though. The burn that she got from simply brushing her fingers against the door for 1 or 2 seconds is incredible. Of course, I knew that the door to the fire was dangerously hot but I thought that we were safe because the kids were aware that they were not to touch or go near the fire. It's just made me aware that freak accidents do occur and maybe we do need to put the guard up around the fire again. It's too easy for the kids to lose their balance, trip, or fall near the fireplace. An important lesson for us all I think as to how easy these sorts of accidents happen.
