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!

Your poor daughter! When Joey was very little, he grabbed a hot pepper and ate a chunk then spit it out quickly. With tears in his eyes, he said "When I look at it, it not hot!" I may have to do a blog post about that one!

I can totally relate to your pepper experience. If my little Davey can survive his 3 older brothers it'll be a miracle!! I love the pics of Walker...he is gonna break some hearts some day!! So sad about your little girl's rash...what a nightmare! And totally crazy that your sister-in-law is in my ward. Mindy is so nice and so pretty. I never put the whole "Atkin" thing together before! What a small world! Anyhow...a pile of laundry awaits me! It's fun to keep up with you on here though! Until next time!

And don't you think these kind of things only happen when we get on the phone for 2 seconds? I swear my kids watch and wait... Glad she's ok!!
