The Case of the Disappearing Penny


1 Blood curdling Darling scream

1 mad dash to the playroom


1 swallowed penny

1 "THIS IS WHY WE DON'T PUT THINGS IN OUR MOUTH!!!!"

1 "You are in SO much trouble!"


1 phone call to Nurse MIL

1 familial freak out after she described blocked esophoguses and little intestines


1 trip to the ER

1 xray

1 XRAY THAT SHOWS NO CONSUMED PENNY

1 dirty look from Nurse Practioner for wasting their time


1 hundred dollar Blue Cross Blue Shield co-pay

1 conflicted Moxie (relieved/pissed)

1 more day in parenting paradise

Priceless.

First person who says "penny for your thoughts" will probably get punched.
