Cat Fight

Well our cat, Kasper, has come home with his first set of war wounds. He's got a nice scratch across the "whites" of his left eye. It's not across the retina, so he should be OK. But we still have to watch it to make sure it doesn't get infected. Poor kitty.

Bailey and the Nickel

A couple mornings ago, Bailey found a nickel while cleaning. She was so proud of it. She showed it to me, and I told her she could keep it. Grins from ear to ear. How cute!

Ten minutes later, she was wailing.

She'd swallowed it.

I wasn't too panicked. My brother had swallowed a 2 inch quilting pin when we were kids, and the doctor had told my mom to simply check his stools for the next few days and wait for it to come out. I figured we'd have to do the same.

I went down stairs to tell my husband, then came back up to calm Bailey down and try calling Grandpa (a family doctor). No luck there, and I didn't have his pager number. Sigh.

Seth came up stairs and told me he had googled "my daughter swallowed a nickel". His answer was right there at the top. Google's amazing! Anyway, it said the same thing that my mom's doctor had told her all those years ago. Check the pooh.

So we did.

I am happy to report that this morning, two days later, it finally came out. Hooray!

Lesson: don't put nickels in your mouth.

Bailey is 6!

Bailey had her 6th birthday recently. Her and Sierra decided what her "cake" would be, and they helped make it. They decorated the cup cakes and made the mice. I made the cat on top. Cute huh?

Happy Birthday Bailey!
