I've been thinking about yesterdays' coin experience, and thought it a good opportunity to learn and grow so I'm very proud to present:-
Farmers Wifey - a guide to science and anatomy or Money, you can't take it with you.
Kids, don't try this at home.
The facts are as follows:-
Problem - Miss T (aged 6) swallows a 10 cent coin at approximately 3.30pm Thursday.
Location - Monkey Bars at Auskick.
Reason - she was swinging with both hands and didn't have anywhere to put the money. So she put it in her mouth (wtf?)
After a good head throwback, down it went.
Mood - her - upset, crying, remorseful, afraid
- me - upset, worried, tired, bewildered
Reappearance of the coin - 1.30pm Friday...
Scientific facts are as follows :-
1) 22 hour digestive turnaround
2) Coin colour (when washed) now a metallic blue as per photo in bag (for obvious reasons)
Side affects - Nil except for a good dose of sheepishness, and a scolding and lots of hugs from Mum and Dad.
When a mother loses her marbles, where do they actually go?
Can ones hair go grey overnight?
Kids - do they leave home at 18?
Stress - fact or fallacy
So a good result all round. No Xrays needed. And a day off school for Miss T who said she watched 12 Barbie movies.
I didnt think we owned that many.
Until next time........
