The thing is, you just never know what kids will get into. And we have one that is very sneaky and very fast. Can you guess which one of these jokers is giving us trouble?
If you guessed Reid (far left) you'd be right. It started with the changing table. Reid is tall, and one day he pulled the A+D ointment off the changing table. I found him sucking it down like those squeezable yogurts. Nice. None of the ingredients were too alarming (castor oil and the like) but it did say to call poison control if ingested. So I did. They warned that it might cause loose stools if he ate a good amount. I countered that at least he'd be well-lubed for the cause. No harm done, and I moved the ointment.
Not even a month later we had another incident. Paul was in the bathroom with Cort and Reid. He was brushing Cort's teeth, and Reid was
Oh, Reid had a grand old time staying up late without his brothers. He gorged himself on squash bread and ran giddily all over the house. Thankfully, he was fine.
I hope I don't have to call a third time. Because I'm pretty sure if they see just one more call from my number alarms will go off in the building and I'll be declared an unfit mother. At any rate, moms, have the number on your fridge or programed in your phone - someplace you can find it easy. Because it only takes a split second for kids to grab something they shouldn't, no matter how child-proof you think you are! We are so thankful our sweet (but sneaky) Reid was okay.
