This happened the day before Thanksgiving, and I was busy! It was an outlet that was out of view, behind a chair. My three-year-old, Mase, was the culprit and fortunately didn’t get zapped.
We have sliding kid-safe outlets in our basement, but upstairs, as you can see, our outlets are uncovered. I did such a thorough job covering them with our first, then none of our kids had ever taken a big outlet interest so we stopped bothering. But, it only takes one time for a serious accident to happen.
I debated about posting this, though decided this was something I didn’t want to forget. It was a wake-up call for me. I know I can’t avoid all kid accidents. I’ve seen them happen to some of the most careful parents, BUT, I can certainly take a few extra kid precautions.
And I’ll definitely keep praying daily for safety. I just hope my children’s guardian angels don’t get worn out!

Have you had any “wake-up calls”?
I’m sure there are some other things I need to be reminded of.
