Tia Tales, Part One

Warning…The story I am about to post is gross…really, really gross.

So it was a fairly nice day today – chilly, but the sun was out, so I decided to take the kids on a walk. I got Tia all dressed and ready and sent her outside while I bundled Landon up and put him in the Baby Bjorn. When I came out, Tia was chewing on something and looking at me with that guilty look, which is never a good sign.

Assuming she was eating a piece of dog food (something she is prone to doing), I asked her to spit it out in my hand. When she did, I almost threw up. It was not a piece of dog food, but was, in fact, Landon’s umbilical cord, which must have fallen out of the garbage can.

Ewwwww…I am gagging even typing this out. Sometimes I wonder how children survive childhood!

    Wow. I wish I could’ve taken a picture of my own face when I read that. Wonderfully wrong and sick funny.
    I’m glad you’re blogging. Jerod

  3. Kelli – That is totally disgusting and a little hilarious all at the same time. I’m so glad to get a little peek into your life since you started blogging. I miss you! Hug your kiddos for me. I can’t wait to see you in March (after your wonderful trip to Florida!) Jillian

  4. Oh, Tia. So, so, gross, honey.

  5. Oh my-lanta Kelli,….that is so wrong on so many levels….”I just threw up a little in my mouth.”

    LOVE YOU and glad you are blogging-YAY!
