Gag Reflex

Did you know that dolphins don't have a gag reflex?? Since they breathe out of their blow-holes, when they're choking they can still breathe - so no need. Too bad W isn't a dolphin, cause this kid will throw up if he even looks at something that might tickle his throat. The culprit today was a cotton ball that he "tasted". The little cotton fuzz got stuck to his tongue, and there really was no other option than to throw up. Kinda gross, but we got him all cleaned up and his clothes in the laundry.

W also opened the dishwasher and took out a butcher knife (!!!!) and stabbed it into the linoleum. I was right there and saw him do all of this in .3 seconds. Why does God make children so quick on their feet?! After putting the dishes away, I discovered our lint roller had ended up in the toilet. hmm... We proceeded to take a significantly short nap. And then later on this afternoon we went out on the balcony and W started playing in the dirt. At first I was freaking out, but decided he was a little boy and deserved to play in dirt. Until he took a fistful and tried to eat it. What's the solution to things in our mouth that we don't like?? That's right! Barf #2 for the day. Oh, and we had just eaten fruit loops, FYI. Sick. It's only 5 PM, so perhaps he'll do some more fun things before the day is over.




Cute man playing in the dirt...


Until the fruit loops came back to haunt us. (It was sicker than what was on the shoe, but I don't think any of you actually want to see it for real)
Back in the tub

Anyone want to rent a kid for the day?

Your stories always crack me up. I wanted to rent out Camden yesterday and today. I think I need to just not have a fee...then there might be some possible takers...

isn't this a fun age?! oh man. my big heartstopper this week was henry getting lost in the grocery store and this was after insisting on riding in one of those car carts, opening the package of paper towels, and ditching his shoes and socks. i swear you can't take these kids anywhere from the age of 18 months until 5.

it looks like you guys had a great vacation, though. i went to st. louis when i was 8 or 9 and the only thing i remember is being in the arch.
