Don't Eat That!
Today I had a huge scare. Joyanna had confiscated my watch earlier in the day. Later I asked her to find it and at first she wouldn't do it. Then I insisted so she went off to look for it. She came back to me all upset and nearly in tears telling me she couldn't find it because she ate it. WHAT!??
Now I've heard of kids eating weird stuff so this didn't strike me as odd right off the bat. "No, Joy, where is it." Breaking down into big crocodile tears, "In my tummy! We can buy you a new one!" Oh man, now I'm starting to get a little worried. My sister had x-rays of her kid with rocks in his tummy, a watch isn't that far of a throw. "Joyanna, really, where is my watch." She keeps insisting, "It's in my tummy mommy." And opens her mouth, "In there!" and she keeps crying.
Now I'm panicked and wondering who would be open at this hour with an x-ray machine. I called the kids and told them it's an emergency they better find my watch!
Lucky kid she is that her brother Jake found it before I started sticking her into a coat to run to the hospital... without insurance!
