Today Lydia decided to help herself and get her own snack. She chose her brother's moracca from preschool. I looked at her one minute and she was playing music with Elijah. I look a minute later and half the plate is missing including the staples. I of course call the pediatrician in near panic and they told me to bring her on in. After a quick x-ray to determine that her lungs were clear we are playing the wait and see game with all her dirty diapers. There are 4 staples in there and they should come on their own. The doctor said to not feel bad (although I do!!) that so far she's seen an OPEN safety pin and a chewed up Christmas bulb pass thorugh her patients this year.
