The Penny...

Disclaimer......... there is potty talking and Riley I am sorry your grandma made me tell it. One day when you have kids you will understand.
 and this little girl have to do with each other your probably asking yourselves. Well here you go...
It all started Tuesday afternoon after picking her up from school and getting the homework done she and the boys asked to watch some cartoons while I fixed dinner. I said sure but they wanted to watch them on my bed. So in they go I was talking to my mom and trying to figure out just what I wanted to make for dinner. When Riley runs into the kitchen screaming I am choking on a penny. I knew then that she wasn't and would be ok but she is our over reactor and proceeded to try and throw up the penny to get it out I told her that wasn't a great idea and so to be safe I call poison control. The man on the phone says she should be fine have her take a drink but knowing she is my daughter I have him ask her and then she does it. He also tells her that if you can eat and drink fine it will just come out in your poo she practically drops the phone and runs to the bathroom. I having no idea what he has said pick up the phone and  say what did you tell her he goes that is will come out in her pooh I go well she is now trying to pooh. We both started to crack up. It took me 45mins to get her to come out of the bathroom for dinner. And after telling her that your body needs food to make poo.  So the next morning as the little worrier woke up she didn't want to get ready for school or eat breakfast so I sent her to the bathroom and told her I would check for the penny. As I walked into the bathroom I grabbed a penny from the extra change and took it with me as I went to flush I threw it in and said look there is a penny in there and now have our Riley back to her old self.
