Today, I took home my grandpa's ashes. I then went out with my grandma, leaving my 5-year-old at home with my 12-year-old. When I got home, my beaming 5-year-old opened the door, covered in white powder. My grandmother asked where all the powder had come from. She pointed to the empty ashbox. FML

That is so awful. Why the hell did you leave something that important where your five-year-old could get at it?? Why was she not informed that this was an absolutely hands-off item? Why was she beaming? There is so much wrong with this. Your poor, poor grandmother. :(

You forget that 5-year-olds can be pretty damn determined if they want to get at something. I know I sure as hell was at that age.

And who locks up the remains of one of their dead relatives? I doubt the OP expected her daughter to cover herself in the ashes of her dead grandfather.

i'm honestly very sorry for your loss, but you shouldn't have left your kids home alone with something that important within the reach of a five year old.
sorry, hope you feel better
