Parental Rule #45

If you see a foreign substance and you’re not quite sure if it was produced by your child’s nose, mouth, or rear end…do not under any circumstances give it the taste test to try to figure out what it might be. Always assume it is something from your child, even if it does look like rich fudge topping.  It’s much better to be safe than sorry. Trust me on this one.

Speaking from experience I know this is great advise. If only I had read this a couple of years ago. I was at a friend house who had a 1year old. She preferred to dispense with clothes in the summer. I remember sitting in the garden keeping her amused with some toys. She passed me some m&ms. Or so I thought. The were a little but like m&ms but without the crunchy outer layer, and a little too soft and "fudgy". I still shudder when I think of that experience.

This reminds me of the time I watched Cali put some chocolate in her mouth from off her living room floor. I literally watched her face turned green as she realized she had just put poop in her mouth and ran to the kitchen sink. It was slightly awesome. haha.

P.S. Thanks for your HP7 part 2 review. It made my whole night. I wrote you a response back on my blog.

Life is just too funny to be taken so seriously
