Screen Shot 2014-08-08 at 1.03.37 PMAs parents, we like to bond over toddler horror stories, don’t we? It makes me feel less alone to know that other parents have their hands full. The parents of a toddler who caused a security breach at the White House yesterday will eternally be trumping their friends’ tales of toddler woes.

President Obama was about to address the nation about Iraq last night, when the briefing was delayed because of a security breach on the North Lawn. A toddler squeezed through the bars and ran onto the lawn, causing a temporary lockdown.

“We were going to wait until he learned to talk to question him, but in lieu of that he got a timeout and was sent on way with parents,” according to Edwin Donovan, spokesman for the United States Secret Service.

Oops. My kid has done things like cause a row of oranges to fall at the market, touch a lady’s butt while we were at a Manatee reserve and has managed to say all manner of inappropriate things at inopportune times. All embarrassing. Not quite as embarrassing as being the parents of a child who caused the nation to wait on the President because he shoved his little toddler body through the White House gates.

I’m kind of jealous of these parents though. They are eternally going to have the best story to tell at holiday dinners and to new girlfriends – Remember the time little Jimmy caused a national security breach?
