Oh man, there was a time when calling Poison Control felt like an alsmot weekly occurence. Talk about getting my mommy card taken away. I was sure that they keep track of how many times certain families call and then when you reach the limit in a year they come take away your kids. Here's my list of what Julian has gotten into:* Eating Comet while I was cleaning the bathroom (this now happens with the door shut)* Eating birth control pills (that were up high out of reach or so i thought)* Eating his Flouride pills, like 10 of them at once (this was in a cupboard that was literally 4 feet above the ground with nothing below it. How he got in I have no idea)* Drinking his albuterol nebulizer medication that is only to be breathed inSo yeah It makes me feel like I am a terrible mother. We've since gone about 5 months without a call to Poison Control
