Poison Control

September 11, 2013

Add this to the list of milestone firsts.  We put the kids to bed.  Alice, as she is recently prone to do, laid down on the hallway floor with a pillow (minus case- she removes it every time I put it on), Pinkie Pie, and a Strawberry Shortcake book she’s been reading for about a solid two weeks.  I almost trip on her every time I walk by.

However, discovered that this time she was also holding a half-empty tube of toothpaste in one hand and the cap in the other.

This was a brand new tube tonight.

So…. I called poison control.  First time I’ve done that.  Turns out you need to eat 3-4 oz of it to do any harm (possible she did.  It’s a 7.5 oz tube, half empty).  But if she were going to have any problems, they would have been immediate (if she was asleep, this was a while ago) and would be obvious… she’d be throwing up, not sleeping peacefully on the floor.

All’s well that ends well.  Another point for Alice.
