Wild Party at Suzie's House

Its just a typical Monday morning. I am sitting at my desk drinking my coffee shuffling papers and waiting for a return call from Little B's doctor.

Why you may ask are you waiting to hear from little B's the doctor?

Does he have a boo boo?

Nope

A little head cold?

Nope

Did he happen to eat an inedible cake topper in front of at least 13 guests at his bobo party?

Yes! You're right how did you guess?

Yes I like to throw exciting parties where danger lurks at every turn. To hell with pinata anyone can get hit with a stick while beating a poor donkey to death. I'm the sort of gal who goes for the exotic. I throw caution to the wind and put little plastic pacifiers (bobo's) on top of a cake. After singing the traditional bobo party song and telling everyone that the cake toppers were plastic and not to be eaten I went to get a knife to cut the cake. Upon returning I noticed little hand prints on the cake and there was Little B drooling and huddeled in a corner. Yes my daredevil son during my brief absence took the plunge and stuffed the cake toppers in his mouth.

Did anyone stop him you may ask?

Nope

Did anyone even notice?

Nope

But upon party debriefing this morning it was discovered that he indeed ate at least one.

So its just another Monday morning, coffee, papers and a plastic cake topper inside my Little B.

Sigh

I'm wondering how many gray hairs little B has given you by now. It's not surprising that he wen nuts over seeing a plastic pacifier. Who can blame the little one. It had just been....so....long...for him! Poor little guy.
Have a fabulous Monday morning!

What is it with eating non-food items?? I see my 3 year old trying to sneak play doh into his mouth or chewing on a string, and I think, "but you won't eat pasta?"

Dare I ask how big the bobo was, or is that just wrong?

Mrs Parks said...

ooops.

Reluctant Housewife said...

What were they made of? Plastic? Wax? I can't imagine it tasted very good...

Good Lord!
My middle son would eat anything when he was his age. One time we took him to the emergency room because he told us he ate some money and couldn't remember what kind of money it was. (Quarters? Nickels? Half dollars?) It raised a few eyebrows at the hospital because at the time he was wearing a thigh to toe bright purple cast on his leg, (another accident, don't ask,) and had a purple knob on his forehead where his sister hit him over the head with a cash register. (Fisher Price version.)

He will grow out of this, though it may shorten your life!

Good luck..

Erin said...

Ugh. I'm so sorry. My kids always tried to eat dead bugs and flies (and sometimes the alive ones too; they weren't picky). Gross!

Susan said...

Is he that kid that's on the commercial for Anthem/Blue Cross? You know the one where the doc is always removing something from his little body. First a bean in the nose and then a doll high heel from his ear, and then an X-Ray of a diamond ring. Gotta be that same kid. Whew, that must be hard on the change purse.

Maggie said...

Yeah, not good. Makes you wonder what goes through their little heads half the time. Hope it all comes out OK, literally. =S

Vered - MomGrind said...

I hope he's OK.

They say that kids' brains are just half-baked until, what, age 20?

Makes sense.

Valarie said...

I never would have imagined that a bobo party would be so dangerous.

Brooke said...

uh oh! hope little b passes that cake topper soon!

Heidi said...

My first two were so good about not putting ANYTHING in their mouths, I thought I had gotten through without having to deal with it....until my third. She's 5 and STILL trying to eat everything she sees! She definitely makes up for my other two not doing it at all! :)
Poor B- hope it all works itself out soon! :)

adrienne said...

How do they do it? I have trouble just swallowing a pill. Hope everything's okay.

Thank You for inspiring feedback today.

MizFit said...

good G-D I love your blog.
you so normalize my FRENCH FRY CRAMMED UP NOSE (uh, toddlers not mine) life.

The Laundress said...

I'm so coming to your next party!

Ali said...

Wow! Your Little B is one very determined young man. I mean, that takes some serious determination, eating inedible, potentially injurious objects. Go him!

Queen-Size funny bone said...

what goes in must come out.

Kristin H. said...

Oh Suzie....

Kmommy said...

LOL!! Of course that's going to happen! Anything and everything inedible will absolutely be eaten the moment you leave the room. Especially if you tell them its not to be eaten! :)

April said...

awwww... you just can't catch a stinking break. i'm sorry!

tiff said...

Ivy ate five wishing stones once. She was going into her sister's room, climbing onto her dressing table and partaking of the stones. She thought they were lollies.

Another time I changed her nappy and she started paying out 5c pieces.

They do put weird things in their mouths.

Hang in there. This too shall pass (quite literally).

Reminds me of the birthday party where Son #2 (at age 3) unzipped the back of Barney's big purple costume to reveal the teen party helper inside and made all the other kids at the party cry. :)
