Remind me never to have children, please! Okay, maybe that's an over-exaggeration, but kids are expensive. And that's when they're not spending hundreds of dollars on loot crates or crashing their new car the first day that they get their license (my mom did this. Hi Mom!).

For all the headaches that I caused as a child, I can proudly announce that I never cost my parents hundreds of dollars doing something truly stupid - unless going to soccer camp thinking that I was the next Mia Hamm counts. Or going to college... You decide which was worse!

But, this week, a two-year-old managed to buy a (pretty reasonable) couch from Amazon that cost her parents hundreds of dollars. Why was she on Amazon in the first place? Why a couch and not something more practical? Was it a nice couch? Answers to these questions and more tonight at 11 right now. In this article.

Okay, let's get this out of the way. There's nothing wrong with handing your phone to your kid for a few minutes.

Sure, it's kind of sad to see a toddler on an iPad when the family is out to eat at a restaurant...

But sometimes, you just need to take a break and get some actual work done.

Gone are the days of giving your kid, like, some bubble wrap and getting 15 minutes to yourself.

So sometimes you gotta hand your phone to your two-year-old in order to do the dishes.

It just happens...

And that's exactly what happened to Isabella McNeil.

Because Murphy's Law exists double-y for children. What can go wrong will absolutely go wrong in the hands of a child.

But here's the kicker.

At first, Isabella didn't notice.

When she realized the order had been placed, the couch was already well on its way.

And that Prime shipping means it was on her porch in no time. Good luck getting that thing into your house!

She was shocked.

McNeil told NBC San Diego, “I thought, ‘Did I buy a couch in my sleep?'"

No, Isabella. But your kid did!

Well not really.

McNeil handed her phone off to her daughter but forgot to do one important thing.

The last app she had up -- Amazon.

I guess two-year-olds aren't old enough to go straight for Apex Legends when they get their parents' phones.

So, she played the Amazon shopping game, and picked out the one item she'd always dreamed about:

A $430 couch.

Apparently McNeil was looking to buy a couch, but their daughter doesn't quite have the eye for interior decorating that they had hoped for.

Side note: does anyone else think that's a pretty good price for a couch?

Our half-way-descent Ikea couch cost almost 2x that amount. Maybe we got scammed.

The worst part? Amazon charges a restocking fee for large items.

So it's not as easy as having the UPS guy come back and haul it off to a warehouse somewhere in the Midwest.

The restocking fee would cost her almost $200.

They charge a 50% restocking fee for an unopened couch?!

She says she's learned her lesson though.

“Sometimes, when you’re a mom and you’re just in that desperation and you just kind of want them to settle down, the first thing you go to is, ‘Here, play with my phone for a little bit,'" she said.

“It’s not worth $179 to just let her play with my phone."

You can say that again... "Now I’m going to be a lot more aware of my Amazon app."

The problem came when it was time to check out.

Isabella had one-click purchasing set up on Amazon, so her daughter only had to press one button and the couch was on its way.

"I think parents just need to be more aware," she explained.

"When you're giving your kids a phone, make sure all the apps are closed. Make sure the passwords are fingerprint locked, make sure they don't know your number password."

"Kids are a lot smarter than we think."

Having a kid feels like going through high school with a phone all over again. We used to guard our passwords with our lives.

It felt like there was never a moment we didn't have friends trying to break in and snoop around.

Or send an inappropriate text to a secret admirer. Phones contain so much personal information that we really need to be more aware of what data people can access -- even our kids!

McNeil isn't planning on eating that $179 restocking fee, either.

Because that $200 could be spent on better things. Like maybe their kids own personal iTouch so they don't keep buying things on Amazon without permission.

No, instead they're looking to sell the couch locally.

So if you're in San Diego and you need a cheap-ish couch... At least now you know the exact retail value so you won't get a bad deal.

Unfortunately, kids aren't the only culprits of this type of accidental purchasing.

According to Finder, Americans spend almost $40 billion drunk shopping every year.

And when you think about it, kids are just kind of like tiny drunk adults.

They have bad balance, slurred speech, frequently throw up, and are generally kind of annoying.

At least children don't have to face consequences when they drunk shop.

When I drunk shop, I just wind up with ugly bathing suits and bags of food I'll never eat. Never anything cool like a couch.

So, we doubt this article is going to stop parents from handing over their phones.

And really, we don't want it to. We're not about that.

But what we do want, is to encourage people to be more conscious about security.

If it's that easy for a child to buy something on Amazon, think about how easy it would be for someone who knows what they're doing.

Keep good passwords, and change them relatively frequently.

Or at least use the fingerprint scanner on your phone. It's there for a reason.

So what do you think?

Should she stop giving her daughter her phone?

Or do you think this was just a one-time mistake?
