The Suitcase Matter

I have my huge red suitcase in the house ready to pack our stuff. But I didn't want to pack for another two days. Since yesterday was a sunny day, I had to suitcase out in the sun, and brought it in.

Aidan thought it was a great plaything. He climbed into it with Puppy and Bear Bear, closing the lid. I even took some pics. But when I was editing the pics, something I remembered held me back from posting it. Our Malaysia case of Nurin and a more recent case in Sydney, where a young mum is accused of murdering her two-year-son and put him in a suitcase, and dumped the suitcase into a lake, which was found by two young boys. A very traumatic experience for them, I am sure. If you want to know more, here's the link to the article.

So when I saw the pics I took of Aidan in the suitcase, it gave me the creeps. Now I had the suitcase zipped and locked. He wanted me to open it, but nup, no way.
