try it, mommy

here's something interesting that happened today.

as we sat vegging together, me at my computer (where else?) and K watching sesame street, the boy suddenly handed me this:

and said, "try it, mommy." then turned back toward the television, once again mesmerized by a dancing elmo.

i was confused. try it? a computer cord?


i looked to him for explanation but it was clear he was worlds away. i returned my gaze to the cord.

wait, was that moisture i felt on the cord?

the entire thing was sort of wettish, kind of...


"K! did you put this in your mouth?!?!"

no response.

"K! were you sucking on this?!?"

he turned to me with a very bored, two year old couch potato look.

"yep, mommy.... "

it was then that i saw the cord was STILL PLUGGED IN TO THE WALL ON THE OTHER END.

" feel kind of buzzy in my mouth."


how this child remains alive is sometimes a mystery to me.

Hi, you have very nice blog

Every so often, I let my kids lick 9-volt batteries.

They slur their speech after a while, but I don't think it's that harmful.

Your kid should be good.

I'm wondering if this won't result in even curlier hair.

moooooo35 and kone are hilarious!! I'm glad your son is okay, but geez I know you almost had a panic attack. Maybe time to crawl around on all fours and do the "from the perspective of the baby" search!

Good luck! LOL!

Hilarious! My son (only 11 months) has done that same thing, just without words. He has tried eating so many cords that were still plugged in. I hope you don't mind, but I put a link to your blog on mine.
