So we went to the Annoying Inlaws place yesterday for their daughter's first birthday, and I have a curious question:

Anyone ever put a burning birthday candle down in front of a 1 year old? Is this a thing?


They brought her a cupcake with a candle on it. She immediately tried to grab the flame. Her father grabbed her hands, and then they tried to convince her to blow it out. Which of course she didn't because she had no clue what they were on about. Her father blew it out just as her hands escaped, and I think she grabbed the burning ember on the top of the candle in the end.

Just did not seem terribly advisable.
