In other news, we had our first choking scare today. Ayden was sitting next to me on the floor at the studio and I had given him a small bite of chicken. I was rounding up everything for the diaper bag so we could head home and all the sudden he leaned forward with his hands on my leg as he made half a cough sound. Then he went silent and started to turn red. It took two finger sweeps to find the chicken and a couple of strong back pats to get him to take a big deep breath. Then he started crying because I'm sure it scared him as much as me. I was shaking and my heart kept pounding for a good 10 minutes afterward. It was the worst thing ever and I am so glad I knew what to do and didn't hesitate to do it.
Have you had any scary parenting moments? What did you do?
