Anyway in an effort to get something done, I ran the water, loaded the dishes in the sink, warmed up the baby's bottle and took her outside for a full half hour to feed her out on the lawn chair.....
These represent the drips.... the entire kitchen and hall was covered in water, and so was the basement floor....!!!!! OMG
I had the baby down for it's nap, dishes done and ALL the water mopped up before her Dad came home. Don't think he ever knew what I had done.
Come to think of it I did it a second time a week or so later....
I kept thinking .... I'm responsible for this little life. !! it really did a number on my confidence.
When you're watching/caring for a baby, all sorts of things can get forgotten. Okay, one more from me. In my neighborhood, someone had an indoor pond. Petsitter was told turn valve on, to refill evaporated water. The person did such, and forgot about it completely, until they came the next day. The entire living room was flooded. Assuming the home owners or the petsitter had insurance.
