Ok, so you put your kids to bed and you go down stairs. Then about 20 mins later your 4 year old just starts crying and basically freaking out. She comes down the stairs, tears rolling down her face and she says to you, "I was cuddling Jesus and then I swallowed him." You think you must not have heard her correctly so you ask "what?" and through the sobs she repeats "I was cuddling Jesus and I swallowed him." Then you feel bad because instead of panicking you start to laugh.
I know what you are thinking...Oh yeah that happened to me just yesterday. Well yesterday that did happen to me. In primary they gave all the kids those little clear glass pebble type things with a picture of Jesus on the back. They were instructed to take good care of them so none of their little brothers or sisters would choke on them. And last night Emma got hers out after we put her to bed, was playing with it and apparently had it in her mouth when she accidentally swallowed it. When she came downstairs it was apparent that she was breathing fine and her crying sounded more upset than in pain so I guess that is why I found it more funny than worrisome. I called her pediatrician today and they said as long as she is not complaining about any stomach or back pain she should be fine and it should pass in about 3 days. And Emma learned a valuable lesson.
