Lapse in Judgement
I had a scary experience with this kid last week.
I had a brief lapse in judgement and gave him a piece of hard candy that was not a good size for toddlers.
Then he threw a tantrum with the candy in his mouth.
Then he choked.
Then he stopped screaming...and breathing.
Then he started gurgling.
Then I panicked & called 911.
Then he finally got the candy down.
Then I hugged him and sobbed for about an hour.
