Little pepper girl
I wanted to have this in writing, so I wouldn't forget it. I just finished making dinner and was on the phone with my sister in Az. And all of a sudden I heard a scream from Ella that I didn't recognize. I know which screams to ignore and which to pay immediate attention to. This one needed immediate attention. While I was on the phone with my sister, Lilly poured a whole cup full of pepper in Ella's high chair. Ella, who is at the age where she puts EVERYTHING in her mouth was eating pepper, and lots of it! There were black specks all over Ella's face and in her mouth. Poor baby! I noticed Lilly was no where to be found and was hiding.I quickly washed Ella's mouth and eyes out with a cold rag and then gave her a bath. I don't think Lilly was doing anything to be mean, she just thought it wold be fun to give the baby pepper. Ella was fine. I gave her a bath and there was a million little pepper pieces floating in the water.Lilly felt bad and we had a talk that we don't give Ella ANYTHING until we ask mom!
