February Haiku Challenge – 17

Thought something ‘lighter’ might be in order after yesterday.

Some babysitters
have no plans for preventing
a child’s busted head.

  1. That’s not lighter: it is shocking!

    • Sorry, guess my kids are still too close to that age. All I could think of when looking at the picture was “Put your hand on that kid! IT is going to fall off of there!”
      🙂

  2. I laughed and laughed because of your take on the picture as so different. It is so true, we need to be careful with little children and have a watch on them, but it just struck me as funny.

  3. I’m glad I never had to employ such a babysitter! 🙂

    Waiting for the Women

  4. That is a horrible baby sitter…in the first place, I wouldn’t put my child atop there ~ Nice one ~

  5. Shawna

    You could say that about some parents as well. 🙂

    I wish I had known about this project earlier; I would have joined in as well.

  6. That’s a diiferent take on the prompt. True one.

  7. Hmm that’s a different take on the prompt!

  8. Precariously placed and a steep drop for such a little one!

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
