Look on the bright side, at least he's a good eater!!!

It was all my fault... We heard a melt down coming on from the kids in the basement so I went down to diffuse. Ry, Arli and Gator; are all learning to share and sometimes it is harder than other times. I found out that I needed to use my mad-redirect-skills in order to make things calmer. So I began a game of "Salon". Each child sat down in my chair, I leaned them back pretending to wash and scrub their hair, telling them that they were totally gorgeous. Then it was Gator's turn. He sat in the chair, I laid him back..... He began to choke. I moved him back into the sitting position and I watched him swallow. My sis said to watch out because he was holding a penny earlier and may have put it in his mouth.... I asked Gator where the penny went and he said.."ummmm, froat"... Huujumph... Ry has never done such a thing so I called poison control totally thinking they would tell me that is would come out in his movement at some point and just watch him..... NOOOOOOO such luck. They wanted me to run him over to the ED to make sure it wasn't lodged in his esophagus some where.... I casually asked my siblings and folks " who is coming to the ER with me" to that Gator boy raises his hand and shouts "MEEEEEE" .... My sister also joined us. We had a nice time making the nurses laugh at Gator giving knuckles and saying YO YO YO... We found that the penny made it all the way to his tummy and now we are waiting for him to -PASS- it. He also shouted "peace out" as we left... what a boy!

Oh, my goodness! That is so scary. I am always worrying about my kids putting things in their mouth, just the other day Sawyer found a dime and lucky I noticed it before he got it to his mouth. Glad that he will just be able to pass it! That is funny he shouted out "Peace out". haha

My little Cooper swallowed a magnetic ball, then out little heart freind Carters, bit sister swallowed a penny. Gosh lol. Glad he passed it, we were on our way to PCMC to get Coopies out until he passed it that day. Seriously. Who's next?????
