Poison Control and Play Time

Yeah...I know that the title to this post is a little weird, but it was all I could come up with. ;)
The title really does explain my day quite well though. My plan for the day NOT have a plan. It seems like we've been running like crazy lately, and today I just wanted to STAY HOME. No where to go, no errands to run, nothing to pick up, no appointments scheduled--
I just wanted to enjoy a day at home with the kids.
Plus Mount Laundry was taking over our upstairs, and it was crying out to be conquered. It was beautiful outside today too, so I decided that after I completed a few loads of laundry, I would take Riley and the babies outside to play. As we were getting ready to head out, Hudson came running into the playroom coughing/choking on something. I nervously pried his mouth open and noticed pink stuff stuck in his teeth.
His breath smelled...sweet.
I quickly realized he had eaten something, but at the time I didn't know what.
A bar of soap was my first thought, but I knew we didn't have any pink soap. I scooped him up and ran into my bathroom frantically looking for remnants of what he ate.

I then saw my deodorant lying on the rug.
There were teeth marks in it, and a BIG chunk missing from the top!

I called poison control immediately. They were so kind and assured me that my deodorant was (thankfully) non-toxic.
Hudson should be just FINE!

Praise the Lord!!!
Funny thing is...Corban had just brought this "Poison Control" magnet home from school a few days ago. I almost threw it away, but then thought that it would be a good thing to keep...just in case!
SO glad I posted it!

After the drama was over, we finally headed outside to get some fresh air.
Heaven knows I needed it!

We walked down to the playground and nature trail in our neighborhood!

The kids had fun running, jumping, and

playing in the fallen leaves.

Hudson was indeed fine!
His breath has smelled super "fresh" all day long though;)

My morning was enjoyable--minus the deodorant incident!
Just what I needed after a very busy couple of days!

Hope your having a great day too!!!

Jenny - I found your sweet blog recently through your sister's blog. You do such a great job of maintaining it! Love the fall pictures of your kids, they're precious. :)

Cute, cute photos of the kids playing! Drew has eaten deodorant here, too & I think Darcy did that at one time, too! I remember doing a Poison control post a year or so ago, but now can't remember if it is because of the deodorant or something else! They really are SO nice & helpful, but I always feel like they should lecture me on keeping a better eye on my kids! LOL!

I love the pictures from outside. It looks like they had a great time!
I'm so glad Hudson is okay. I suppose this is the freshest his breath has ever smelled, huh? ;)
