My mum did quite a few irresponsible things when I was a baby that now I have my own kids just blow me away but it was the 70's, she was young and things were different back then.
I used to be angry but Ive long forgiven her.
Oh wow! There are so many circumstances where that 25min could have been longer. Roadworks, car accident, car broken down etc. What
if the house caught fire, someone broke in. Ugh! Just no!
When you have a 1yr old, your life does revolve around them. End of! You want to have a night off, get a babysitter.
just gobsmacked that anyone would think this was ok. And not only one person who did it ... but her friend too
Not. Ok. EVER.
I'm shocked that so many of your friends seem to think it's ok. I wouldn't be able to associate with people like that.
I don't even like leaving my baby alone in the house while I go out and hang the washing. And our washing line is right outside his bedroom.
The thoughts of closing a door and leaving my children alone actually makes my stomach flip.
Where are her mothering instincts?
I've left a baby asleep in the house while walking downstairs to put out a rubbish bin. 25 minute drive each way? That's crazy.
No way in heck!!!

Just recently there was an incident close to where I live where a mother went to the shop and left her baby home alone. The house caught fire and a stranger went in and saved the baby.
The outcome could have been tragic.
Not to mention that a perfect stranger risked their own life to save a child because it's own parent was too lazy to take it to the shops with them.
