Finding Treasure

So on Tuesday,Isaac pooped his penny out.If you can't tell by the picture,it is a 1977 copper penny.

Did you know that after 1982,they started making pennies almost entirely out of zinc?The only reason I know this, is because I was getting a little paranoid about Isaac not having pooped his penny out yet,so I did the dumbest thing ever......I googled the subject.

Yeaaaaah.....if you swallow a penny made after 1982,the zinc in the penny will have a chemical reaction to the acids in your stomach and it will become all jagged,threatening tears in the stomach lining.Seriously!I did not need to know that.....DO NOT google stuff that you know you will hate yourself for later...

But I digress......

All is well with my little piggy bank,and I will do my best at keeping the spare change away from him:)

Whew! What a relief!

I can tell you from experience not to google that stuff. There is so much info out there, and much of it isn't correct anyway. You'll just freak yourself out. But I suppose that's part of being a mom, too.
Permanent freak out.

At school yesterday, one of my kiddos was all hunched over - he had swallowed TWENTY marbles. And apparently, as I found out, a green crayon that no one else knew about.

Soooo glad Isaac is okay.
