Two Days ago I was thrown into sudden panic. I had just sat down in my office when I heard Dylan Scream and then start crying. We all know that kids have many different kinds of crying and we as parents have many different types of reactions. Here are mine...
Types of Dylan Crying & My reaction
1. Fake Cry
Is this kid ever going to shut up?
2. Sad Cry
Oh, bummer...I'm sorry you can't have your way...
3. Going Psycho Cry
Do I need to dunk him in water to get his attention?
4. Buy it for me Cry
How did he get so spoiled so fast?
5. Don't leave me Cry
I love my child so so much. Apparently he loves me too!
6. Scream Cry
OH MY HEAVENS ARE YOU GOING TO LIVE?
So as I was seated at my desk I heard #6. I couldn't think of what could have transpired in the two minutes since I left Dylan in the Play Room until I sat down at my desk. His cry was a high pitch shrill and I knew that he was in pain and that something bad had happened.
When I got to him I couldn't believe my eyes...
Dylan had shoved an old spare car key in one side of the electrical outlet, and a metal spoon in the other.
I didn't know what to do so I just started screaming..."Oh my Gosh!!!!!!!!!"
Dylan survived thank heavens. After he calmed down he did mention to me that he did not like playing with the wholes in the wall.
I think that he got quite a SHOCK!!!
It took me a minute to figure out how to get the metal objects out of the outlet without shocking myself. Think, think, think. Plastic! So I grabbed a rubbermaid container and knocked them out.
I guess today I was smarter than a fifth grader. Wish me luck tomorrow!
