Choking Scare

Little kids make me laugh. They want so badly to be "in the know", so they try to act like they know what you are talking about.


Curly: Coughing and acting like she is choking.

Mom: "What's wrong honey? Are you alright?" in my reassuring Mother voice that tells her it's not a big deal.

Curly: "Yeah. I'm okay Mom. I was just choking on my gums."

She proceeds to point to her teeth and her actual gums...as opposed to chewing gum that she must have heard someone refer to choking on. We aren't really chewing gum people.

And check out those rosy "post-nap" cheeks! Aren't they pink!

THAT IS SO FUNNY!

I was a bit worried when I saw the title, so I'm glad she was just pretending.

She's so cute!

That is hilarious! You could write a book about that girl! All the funny and clever things she comes up with. Love it!

I was thinking and had to come comment again. you should give her her own weekly topic, called something like "Curly Says".

I was alarmed too when I saw the title of this post! I know some days are rough, but to have the daily topic be my daughter choking!? Quite humorous indeed. Silly kid.
