If you look at the top of the night light you can see two little dents. That's where the metal met up with the prongs.

First off I have to begin by saying how grateful I am that no one was hurt. This could have ended vary badly. Fischer definitely had some guardian angels watching out for him. With that said...so Sunday Fischer and I were in his room. Fischer has this night light that has a metal cover with a cute cut out of a fly fisherman. Anyway, he loves playing with the smooth metal piece and often pulls the metal cover off the light. So on Sunday he had pulled it off and was just playing with the metal piece next to me. What I hadn't noticed was that when he pulled it off he also pulled the light section of the nightlight partially out. It was still plugged in but the metal prongs that go into the outlet were showing a bit. I turn my head for a second since I was putting clothes away for him only to turn around and see him trying to "fix" the light and put the metal piece he had pulled off back on the light. As he tries to do that, and before I can grab it from him, the metal piece fell behind the bulb, touched the metal prongs that were still plugged in, and to my horror I hear the awful buzz of electricity flowing through something it shouldn't followed by an explosion and a big fire ball. I scream and immediately attend to Fischer to see if he is okay. He was absolutely fine. He didn't even cry, nothing, just looked at the outlet, put his finger to his mouth and gave a look to me like, "hmm, that was cool." I'm not sure how that kid didn't get hurt other then by some angel watching out for him. He must have let go of that metal piece just in the nick of time. Anyway here are pictures of the "damages".
