Pretty well-written note, for a baby.

Advertising

A New Zealand mom—sorry, "mum"—who evidently (and erroneously) believes that it "takes a village," left her newborn in the car on Saturday while she went grocery shopping. Several concerned passersby in the Pak'n Save parking lot stopped to watch the baby and call the number on the note, which read "My mum's in doing the shopping, call her if I need anything." We wonder if this same principle can be applied to other stages of child-rearing. Until what age is it appropriate to stick a note on your kid with your phone number and let them roam freely. Fifteen? Sixteen?
