W Checking out Crabs

W Checking out Crabs

Still on Chincoteague Island until tomorrow. As always, vacations loom long in the beginning, then suddenly, it’s time to start packing.

W had to pull his usual vacation death scare, by taking (or hiding very well) an inordinate amount of his Grandmother’s thyroid medication.

2 useful facts: The National Poison Control Number can’t be dialed from your cell phone.

And: Your body can metabolize a lot of thyroid medication, since it’s a naturally occurring substance. (The poison control person told me this after I ran to a nearby medical clinic and we called them.)

This child will never cease schooling us in the mechanics of panic. He’s like our own little Mini-Emergency response system test. And it’s not like he’s roaming the streets, smoking Camels. It’s that if you don’t have eyes on him for two seconds, he’s painting his eyelids with your blue nail polish.

But here’s some shots of happier moments:

    That W sure does keep you busy. I remember having to call them once - Poison Control, but can't remember why. So glad he is ok! Was just thinking about your "wig" post and trying to decide if I should send you a wig picture of me. It is very funny but very unflattering! Ok, you know me, I'll do just about anything for a laugh, even if it is unflattering. :)

    Oh my gosh, how scary! We had an asthma inhaler issue a while ago. Turns out it was used as air freshner and not as it's intended purpose. Hope you are having a super fab vacay! .-= Brenda-SeriouslyMama´s last blog ..“Men… Can’t live with ‘em, can’t shoot ‘em.” =-.

    Beautiful photos! My oldest son constantly kept me in a state of panic till he reached middle school. The younger one did as well, though not as often. I hope it'll continue to be smooth sailing from here on out. Hope it is smooth sailing for you all with W from here on out!

    Cammie! You should SO send me the wig shot! I once called poison control when my then 13 yr old was 2- because he drank a bottle of maple syrup. "Uuuhhhh... ma'am- you do know that's not poison, right?" Me: "Well, it COULD be!!!" Brenda- OMG. Your littles are like mine, so close in age they can do some serious damage.:) I hope your leg is so much better! Kim- Thanks, Mama! I had so much fun taking pictures this trip- I love the shore. I hope your boys got all their panics out of the way early on, and will make their mama's life easy.:)
