While I was cleaning up the kitchen after dinner and Noelle was still in her booster seat finishing up her peach flavored apple sauce (mmmm...BIG smiles!), I started hearing weird sounds that strongly resembled gagging. I called to Noelle with concern, and she just looked over her shoulder at me and grinned. Okay, my kid wasn't choking or about to vomit. Whew!
Well, I continue loading the dishwasher and hear the sound again. Once more I call to Noelle, and she smiles back at me. Hmmm...
Then the third time Noelle gags, I go over to investigate. I notice that she is in the process of gagging herself with her spoon - literally!! I watch fascinated as my smirking 19 month old shoves her plastic toddler spoon back into her throat and makes an awful retching sound. I promptly pull the offensive utensil from her hand, and Noelle bursts out laughing. Crazy kid!
The Eighties and "Valley-Girl" comes to mind -- like, totally.
