Guess who just coughed up a penny!

My 1 year old. She was eating a piece of cheese and started choking and gagging. I swept her mouth afterwards and there was a penny in there.

So the penny she swallowed this morning sat in her throat all day?! I am hoping it wasn't a new penny. I cleared all the floors today.

  • Kids! My SILnoticed her 2 year old son smelled really bad, but no matter how many baths she gave him, he still stank. She took him to the doctor about two weeks later. They found a packing peanut up his nose.  I'm glad your precious baby is ok.

  • OMG! Maybe she puked it up?? Whoa! You are a lucky Momma! Ii is very hard to keep the LO's out of harms way. My DH always leaves his coffee cup on the edge of the counter. I am always doing a perimeter check. At least you can sleep soundly tonight right?

  • Wow. The potential for jokes when she is older is endless. From the silly cracks about swallowing money and making change, to the.crude cracks about no gag reflex!!! Lol

    Glad she is ok tho!!

  • That is odd, I am surprised that if it didn't go down any further that she didn't have any issues. Very lucky baby indeed.
