Does anybody else hold the hair elastic(s) between their teeth while using both hands to comb little girls' hair into a ponytail, so that you can just grab the elastic out of your mouth and wrap the ponytail once it's combed into place? And did that description even make any sense at all?
I'm here to warn you. I almost died this morning. Okay that may be a small exaggeration. But I really did nearly choke - like for reals choke.
I was combing Monkey's hair - we were running a little behind schedule, and Hubby and the other girls were already out in the car waiting for Monkey to join them so they could head to school. I had the elastic between my teeth. I had opened the cupboard beneath the sink to grab a spray bottle with one hand, while holding Monkey's hair in place with the other. I was in a hurry and sort of slammed the cupboard back shut.
It smacked Monkey's knee, and she gave a little yelp of pain. I instinctively gasped, and literally inhaled the elastic from between my teeth and it went halfway down my throat!!
I gagged for a second and coughed it up, so I was okay...but seriously - who does that?
Most of you probably aren't special enough to have something like that happen to you - but I thought I'd warn you just in case!
Have a great Wednesday.
