Baby Found Floating in Inflatable Toy After Tanning Parents Forgot They Had a Kid

Having kids is hard. Remembering you have them is even harder.

A ten-month old baby was rescued by the Turkish coast guard today after she was found floating half a mile out to sea in an inflatable device.

Turkish news says the parents forgot they put her in the toy and that she existed (I made up the last part but it's probably true). You forgot you put your kid in floaties and pushed her into the ocean? I have to call bull poop on this one because I know a lot of 10-month olds and they're not exactly quiet. The parents should have been suspicious once they were able to relax for several moments at a time.

How Toddlers See Their Food vs. Your Food

I still don't understand why we need booster seats and high chairs when you have a perfectly good lap.

A Toddler's Rules For The Babysitter

First of all:


1: No looking at me until I give you the signal. If you saw the signal that means you were looking at me and already broke the first rule. Good job.

2: I don't even really need you. I stay home by myself all the time. They just hired you in case I need to reach something high so don't get proud. Technically you're an intruder so I can call the police at anytime and have you brought up on charges.

3: You're not the boss of anyone.
