mama's beware- hot temps mean hot metal

we live in St Louis Mo and it was 97 today. To cool off we went to the park to play in the fountians they have for kids to get wet. WEll, one of my 16 mo old twins went running and the other began screaming. I saw him standing on a metal manhole cover that was next to the benches the moms sit on. He has 2nd and 3rd degree burns to his feet.

Please please be aware of hot pavement and manhole covers. I woudl not have ever thought of it. we were playing and it happended so fast. His poor feet and now we have to go to the burn unit for dressing changes.

Please be aware- dont let this happen to your precious baby's tender feet. I am sick and heartbroken over this. I let him down and didnt protect him. I feel so horrible.

Oh, poor LO and poor mama. Do not beat yourself up too much. I will say a prayer for those little feet and for your broken heart. I can only imagine.

I am sorry mama, a mistake like that could happen to anyone. Just give him extra cuddles, and I hope he is better soon. I would never have thought it could get that hot
