Goddammit….it never fails….. Goddammit

Every friggin time we are supposed to get a break something always happens. 🙁

We just got a phone call. A very disturbing phone call.  I don’t even know what to say to this one. 

Apparently, Emmett shoved a small toy up his butt.

There’s no nice way to put this. Right now he’s on his way home and we will be most likely heading to Akron Children’s Hospital to make sure that everything is okay…um…down there.

We had just settled in to watch Supernatural and snuggle when the call came in. 

We believe the toy is a Squinky.

This should be a squishy rubbery toy but the boys have mixed in some non-squishy ones as well.  We aren’t sure which one took the trip.

Please say a prayer for Emmett.  I have no idea what we are supposed to do. I don’t even know what to say to this……. I mean do assume he’s just gonna poop it out? What if it’s one of the hard plastic ones? Could the sharp edges perforate something or even get stuck?

I feel like the only thing we can do is get him checked out. However, that’s going to be traumatizing for everyone, especially Emmett.

Well, he’s not the first kid to do such a thing…I know that’s probably not much comfort, but, well, there’s really no such thing as a “normal” kid, and chances are, he’s physically okay, so maybe it just is one of those things that freaks the grown folks out more than the kid folks. I don’t think he’ll shake up anyone in the medical field. I know you don’t need this incident, especially this kind of incident, but it really *could* just be one of those things. Here’s hoping.

autiesmama That’s well said.  It’s definitely of those things that freak out the parents…..

I f-ing hate squinkies! My daughter has MILLIONS of them and they get everywhere…but she obsesses about them and knows when one is missing from the group. Everything has to stop until it is recovered. Maybe I should send her up there to “retrieve” the one from Emmett! Best of luck. You can get Miralax to soften things up and help him go…and hopefully help the squinkie pass.

Wait for it to come back out, or go fishing for it. Shouldn’t be too far up. Then just monitor for blood. That would be my vote


I don’t mean to be mean but is there a condition were a kids have a urge to stick things up were the sun don’t shine. Or do some kids do it of just wondering, because I never had the urge to that when I was young.


AMDuser you ask a really good question.  However, I don’t know the answer and was actually going to ask the very same question….




Dearest_Nikky that just about sums it up.  🙁


Kids! They do the oddest things! Good luck! 
P.S. my son shoved dog food up his nose for about 3 weeks straight… every day… we were at the er 15 to 17 times during those weeks. When asked WHY he was doing it, his answer was, “Cuz it feels good” Oy Vey!


Hucksgirl13 some day this will be an embarrassing story to tell his girlfriend.  🙂


lostandtired Hucksgirl13 I already have used it for that! LMAO! 😉
