    Shortly after posting this, my daughter burned herself when a steaming ramekin of marinara sauce spilled on her at a restaurant. Strange as it seems, it was this article that made me the only one who reacted by first trying to get all the sauce off of her hands as opposed to comforting her or cleaning up the mess (I know it sounds strange, but that is gut reaction sometimes). I did then take her to the bathroom to run them under cold water, and took an icepack from the baby’s bottle cooler to cool her hands. I was surprised that the restaurant, which caters to families, didn’t bring ice right away (or at all). Finally, note to restaurants everywhere: Don’t bother serving anything to my young child if you have to caution us all not to touch it because it’s too hot. Do all of us a favor (yourselves included) and keep it in the kitchen for another minute or two.
