Bedazzled by Little E

Have you heard of the BeDazzler?  You may remember it from the onslaught of infomercials.  This little miracle machine attached rhinestones to all sorts of fun stuff like shirts, socks, and jeans.

This machine has probably seen its time.  But, back in the 1980s, these things were in high demand.

This past week, Big E made an art project which included the adhesion of rhinestones to a plastic cup.  His new cup was proudly on display in his room.

This morning, we were rushing to get ready to leave for a book fair.  The Yoys were in Big E's room reading books and playing.

I looked at Little E and he had that look I know so well. He was storing something in his mouth.

With the help of Grandma Yoy, we pried his jaws open and there on his tongue were two little rhinestones, sparkling away, begging to be eaten.


I reached in there and fished them both out.  Little E put up a good fight.  At one point, I thought I had lost part of my finger.

I always comment on how different the Yoys are.  And this is another example.  Big E rarely ate random objects. Little E puts everything in his mouth.  The good news is, he doesn't like to chew.  He is more of a dissolver.  This gives me some time to extract dangerous and deadly items from his mouth.  I just have to always be on the lookout for that telling Little E face.  Then I know it's time to open his mouth up and receive my surprise.

I do give Little E credit for trying to decorate his tongue. I wish I would have taken a picture.
Sort of what Little E's mouth looked like when we pried it open.
