WORD OF WARNING: re: water beads

You know those itty bitty clear balls that expand in water? They will result in you sitting in the ER waiting room with your 2 year old if they eat them.

I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW WE HAD ANY UNTIL SHE POOPED OUT ABOUT 50 OF THEM. NO IDEA WHERE THEY CAME FROM. When they expand, it can damage intestines and the stomach. Please be aware.
