Breakfast of Champions

This morning was like any other morning. Ethan had just finished up his breakfast and was more than ready to get down on the floor and play.

Fridays are normally cleaning day around here so I was buzzing around the kitchen trying to get things cleaned up and was trying to extend his highchair time as long as I could.

No dice though.

So I put him on the floor in the living room so he could go explore. I hear him clomping (yes, my son crawls like a horse) around the dining room on the hardwood floors that have yet to be swept.

With a dog I could sweep one day and you would never know it the next. The dining room is hardly ever used so let's just say not a lot of attention is paid to it.

I hear him coughing which is pretty normal (he loves to cough, not sure why). This cough isn't his normal "talky cough" if you know what I mean so I go in there to check.

He's drooling like CRAZY which is odd.

I pick him up and guess what I find.

An unidentified, long, black bug leg hanging from his lips!

I gag and as I'm about to do the finger swipe I remember that I haven't washed my hands from cleaning the sink so I run to the kitchen and grab a paper towel.

He clamps his mouth.

No one is getting in.

Or out for that matter.

I finally pry his mouth open and get the paper towel in to do some swipes.

I got a few bug pieces out, but I'm pretty sure he'd already eaten most of it by this point.

I hope it was dead although the coughing makes me thing otherwise.


Now, please excuse me while I go sweep, vacuum, and mop all my floors.


  1. A little protein...never hurts. Here was my first gag nutritional value here!

  2. OH my! He's probably gonna eat a few more in the next few years.

    My brothers had a worm eating contest when they were 3 & 4.

    Oh yuck.

  3. Too funny, yet not funny at the time! You will always have this memory to hang over his head when he starts dating!

    It's so funny what they find and what they will put in their mouths. My 1 year old picked up dog poop the first time we went outside right after he started walking! You talk about gagging!! You can bet that a scoop poop every time before I let him outside!!

  4. Oh my goodness - that is too wild!! Looks like you've got some blackmail(sp?)...

    Happy Friday!!

  5. Oh wow! Harlan has tried to eat some crazy things before too, but never a bug. Maybe its a boy thing? ;)

  6. Welcome to the wonderful world of having a boy. (Though I'm guessing girls do it too) Yesterday Jamie got poop on his hand while I was changing him and then attempted to but said hand in his mouth. Gross.

  7. Hahahaha. You poor thing.

    Although, he IS a boy, so that was probably just the first bug of many....

  8. spider...poopy diaper wipes...boys love the grossest least mine does!


Comments make my day! Go ahead...get to typing. I want to hear from you.
