Today we were invited to gan to shop in a store the kids had set up. My 3yo came with me this time. I bought a challah cover my son had decorated, and two cookies. The money went to tzedaka.
I bravely approached this mother with my prepared speech. I had only seen her once before at the Chanukah party.
I told her that I was disturbed very much by something–her very nice metapelet (babysitter) leaves that cute baby at home when she picks up the son from gan. She nodded and did not act surprised. I said that it concerned me because it was against the law, and in the last few months three children were injured in fires when their parents left them alone. One died. She heard me out and thanked me, twice. I avoided her for the rest of the morning. Now we’ll see what happens.
