I love to people watch. It has amused me ever since I can remember. Sometimes though, I just have to wonder what are they thinking??
We live next door to a daycare, and there are always people coming and going. I happened to be outside today when this lady pulled in to drop off her kid. The little one gets out of the car, and is maybe 2. Mind you, it's about 80 out today, so that makes the parking lot at least 20 degrees hotter. And, the mom lets the kid out to walk in, sans shoes, onto the hot pavement.
I get it, some kids hate shoes. But, if you aren't going to make her wear them, then you need to carry her across the parking lot. Do you not realize that the pavement will scorch her little feet???
