Toddler Found Roaming Downtown Grand Rapids At 3 A.M.
You never know what you may run into in downtown Grand Rapids at 3 am but you sure don't think you will run into a toddler wearing nothing but a t-shirt, diaper, and socks.
Where Are Your Kids?
When you tuck in at night and you have kids, it's always good to know where they are no matter their age unless they are out on their own.
When kids become teenagers, that is usually when the possibility of a child sneaking out of the house when they are not supposed is more likely. Usually, when they are toddlers this is something you have to worry about...or do you?
Toddlers Pay Attention to What Adults Do
We have seen stories of little kids stealing their parent's cars to get something from the store. No, their parents didn't teach them to drive but little kids watch their parents grab the keys, put them into the ignition, start the vehicle, see the parent put the vehicle in gear, and push the gas pedal down. It's not too hard for a little kid to figure out something so repetitive.
Heck, I used to date a girl who had an incredibly smart German Shepherd, he used to watch me open the door to the house. One day, I'm looking for the dog and he was outside. Neither one of us let him out. Then later that day I see him put his mouth on the door knob turn it and let himself out. If a dog can figure out to get out of a home, so can a toddler.
A Toddler Was Found Roaming Around Downtown Grand Rapids at 3 am
According to FOX 17, a delivery driver by the name of Gabe Botello who was delivering pizzas at 3 am Sunday morning spotted a toddler roaming around downtown Grand Rapids in a t-shirt, diaper, and socks at 3 am.
Botello found the toddler near the Downtown Market and quickly wrapped her up in a hoodie and gave her some water while contacting authorities. Turns out, the mom thought the toddler was sleeping in bed but didn't know the child had woken up and decided to head out for a little stroll.
Authorities believe this was an accident and the child is safely home with her mom.
