Hidden Treasures
Monday, April 6, 2009

We've had a couple of packages of these bite-sized snack crackers lying around the house for quite some time, so I decided to let the kids finally finish them off. While I love this product for its low-risk choke factor, I despise it for the temptation it presents my 21-month-old to find perfect bite-sized hiding places for which to store them for future enjoyment.

(Wait....what's that in her ear?!?!?!)

While I was fortunately able to retrieve the hidden treasure without too much difficulty, I can't help but shudder at the mere thought of what other pea-sized objects or salty snacks might be taking up residence in Avery's ear canal. Ewww....

Oh my goodness! I can't believe you saw it! Hey, at least it wasn't a watermelon seed...

That's so funny!! I think Tom has fished out a number of 'treasures' in little kiddos ears since he has been in the e.r. On a different note, Avery's hair sure is getting long - it's adorable!

Ummm...maybe I shouldn't have given you Gripz crackers! Brayden has put sunflower seeds up his nose TWICE...luckily he was able to blow them out fairly easily. Why do they think it is so fun to stick things in ears and noses????

What a sneaky little devil! Reminds me of a certain pea-in-the-nose incident that Spencer pulled...and since I couldn't get it out, it necessitated a trip to the urgent care center. So lovely. But on the bright side, he hasn't done it since!

How funny is that?!? Did I ever tell you about the rock I had to rull out of Emmie's nose last year??

Oh my gosh - that's hilarious. I nearly fell out of my chair laughing. At least it wasn't the nose.

My Wine Personality:
For the most part I’m a chardonnay, as I consider myself to exhibit a somewhat sunny and mellow disposition (most of the time), but because I find a tremendous amount of joy out of showering my two kids with hugs and kisses, I also possess the subtle sweetness often found in a riesling. But don’t be fooled. I love a great outdoor adventure and am willing to try anything once. This occasional display of boldness is thought to match that of a cabernet, whereas my appreciation for nature suggests that I have an earthy component to my personality—very characteristic of a merlot.
