A lot of people can say that their money just seems to evaporate. With five kids to feed, most of ours seems to go toward the grocery bill. Well, today I spent two hours in the emergency room with Flowergirl. She swallowed a quarter. I thought it was maybe a penny, but the x-ray showed something much larger. She has never been in the habit of putting small things in her mouth so I was shocked when she came to me just before lunch, pointed to the roof of her mouth and said, "Coin stuck."
So not only did the 25 cents vanish from sight, but it will cost a lot more than that only to have been told "it'll all come out in the end".
Ah, life with kids. Nothing this exciting has happened since Pippen stuck a bean up his nose. That was scary, too, but i was able to help him get that out at home. The first two didn't do stuff like this. I wonder what Elle has in store?
I'm going to make myself a nice cuppa. I'm still stressed. And grateful - I mean
Thank God she didn't choke on it.
And I probably will even get my quarter back - if I want it...
Actually, I think it was Pippen's from his state collection.
