Milton Bradley The Original Hi Ho Cherry-O Game
In our living room, we have a cabinet full of board games—it’s nice having 3 girls since they have built-in playmates (uh, sometimes) for games. One of the games we have always owned is Hi-Ho Cherry-O—it’s a total classic, great for learning to count and has plenty of ways to customize the rules. You know, for when you’re running low on cherries.

Because sometimes, they get swallowed.

Last night, right after bedtime, we hear an ear-piercing scream from Lorelai. As I’m dashing up the stairs, Stacia yells, “Mom! Lorelai’s choking!” Even as I rushed to her, I know that’s not true, or she couldn’t scream. But, clearly something was very wrong. It doesn’t feel good to swallow a plastic cherry, you know.

Now, I have to check the toilet every time the kid goes to the potty. Gross. I’m wondering if I’ll even notice it anyway. Although, it’s not like those cherries are super tiny. Why was she out of bed to get to it in the first place? And, what in the heck would possess her to put it in her mouth? This is not a toddler. She is a savvy, too-big-for-her-britches 4-year-old. Who is precocious as they come.

Thus, I am checking poop this week.
