Yesterday I was making bread and took off my wedding ring so not to get dough stuck in it. Well, later when I was done and went to retrieve my ring...you see where this is going. Yep your right, the ring was GONE. I asked the kids and Ethan said that he had been playing with it but put it right back on the counter when he was done. "Yeah right", I thought. So I began quizzing Ethan and he insisted that he thought he had put it back. I made him retrace his steps for the day and still no ring was found-I was panicked!!!Well, then I began the interrogation -I felt like I was playing good cop /bad cop with him except their was no good cop. He still insisted that he had returned it and asked me to believe him. When out of the corner of my eye I saw something sparkling in Tyler's mouth....again you see where this is going. Yep, it had been in Tyler's mouth the whole time. I told Ethan I was sorry but I still feel so bad that I hadn't believed him. I also feel SO grateful that Tyler hadn't swallowed it-that could have been a disaster. We may have searching diapers(yes he is in diapers again) for a week!!!

In this situation, diapers could have been a blessing in disguise!! I'm glad the little drooly guy didn't choke!!!

his mouth?? that's too much. at least it wasn't his nose. your kids have a little strange obsession with putting objects in their um....openings. couldn't have started in the womb, when their mom was putting boondoggle through her nose & pulling it out of her mouth could it?

I thought I lost my ring once and I think my heart stopped. I can't imagine! Why did tyler put it in his mouth anyway?

Course he did. Good thing you found it or some stool softner would have been in order. Ask Tess where she put it.
