Good use for safety device

In the same line as the shot glass photo, I came into the kitchen today to find my 18 month old carefully putting marbles into the little stupid thing that everyone gets given to figure out which toys are too small for babies. See it here at the bottom....

and carefully using it to tip the marbles into his mouth. And then spitting them onto the floor and watching them roll in all directions (old house, crooked floors).

I think it's the first time anyone in our house has used that safety gadget for anything... clearly it's dangerous. I should get rid of it. :)

I think the fact that your child was drinking marbles out of the safety gage for choking items is absolutely hilarious in a sick kind of way. Obviously, I am glad she didn't choke, but really you should have taken a picture.

1 pt for you for your toddler doing marble shots.

Yes, marble shots are absolutely worth a WMP! If we ever had that gadget, it's probably living with Chris' shot glass collection. Heaven knows I did not use it to pack lunches for daycare...

OK now all my colleagues want to know why I'm laughing so hard. My LO is 15 months and I can so see this happening in our house.
