Default Pee Pad safety tip

Well I smelled a slight smell of something like plastic burning, it was the pee pad touching the base board heater in the bathroom.

Jodi tried to cover up a used pad and pushed it over against the heater. Just one small corner touched the inside of the heater at the bottom, and I had just turned up the heater so it would kick in. He has pushed a corner of a pee pad over before to try and cover it up but this was a first.

The pad was just slightly melted in a few small spots in one corner. But YIKES! How scary to think if I wasn't at home. I don't usually turn up that heater before I leave but still, its never completely turned off and he's never done that before. I'll have to keep it off or really low and the pad somewhere where there's no heater anywhere near it.

something to be aware of.

That's so generous of you Addison, but no need. I can find one here, or order one. Thank you for the kind offer.

Do you think they sit around all day trying to think up ways to scare us? I seem to do that well enough on my own without the help of two little ones!
Thank you for the warning! Our heat in Europe is not the same as yours but it is good to know---something else to keep us awake at night.

Brenda that is so scary!!! I have to tell you that I have a real fear of fire, so my vote is unplug it when you aren't home. My Grandma once had a fire because a dog knocked over a lamp (I think it was) and it lit the house on fire. Thankfully everyone was safe. I also lost a dear senior friend to a house fire. She could not get out in time. By the time we arrived the fire was out, but it was too late. We stood there devastated and stunned as the rescuers removed her from her home. She was a sassy senior with so much spunk. I loved her dearly, as did many others. Anyway, with all that said, I am so glad that you my friend are safe (and Jodi!), but I would count it as a blessing and turn that bad boy off! Big hugs .... you must have been so scared .
