Don't Want No Bling....

When you leave your child to roam around and you hear nothing...time to panic.

Just a word to the wise, you should hear SOMETHING. Rustling, sounds of exclamation over discoveries, things falling or being pulled off a shelf, coughing or gagging, whatever! Just make sure you start running if all is quiet with a 14 month old in the house (except if it is naptime, then leave them alone! ).

I was sitting here at the computer a couple of days ago, when I heard _______ . Yeah, nothing. I went in search of my Bubbalu and found him in the floor of my bedroom. He was chewing on something and playing in my jewelry case. I ran to him and finger swept his mouth revealing:

  • 2 lapel pins without backs (revealing the pokey part that can punch through a thick coat)

  • 1 ring

  • 1 necklace charm


Ok, so if he wants to chew on stuff, ok. But goodness gracious child, pace yourself!

That's not the scary part. ( Although my heart was beating about 50 - 60 extra beats per minute.)

The scary part is I don't remember what was in the jewelry box case that he had gotten into. It was mostly stuff I don't wear frequently.

So, we are checking for bling in the diapers....lots of fun here.

And if I do find anything in there?

All together now, can you say "craigslist"?



  1. Wow! Very fun mom moment! Hopefully the bling came out with the fingersweep.

  2. Hi Amanda,

    Lance told me about your blog. I love it!! I couldn't believe it when I read this story. I'm sure you were freaked out, I know that I sure would have been. Kids are so crazy :)

    Lance has been keeping me updated on how big Jude is getting, but its hard to imagine him running around. We should all get together sometime before school is over.

    Talk to you soon!

  3. Oh my. Did you ever find anything? My son puts everything in his mouth. Keeps me on my toes.

  4. that is really funny!!!
    I could always tell from my kids' diapers if they had been eating CRAYONS or not! :)


C'mon, let's chat a bit...
