A Quick Recovery

Elizabeth was playing with a water bottle with a little bit of water left in it.  She flopped backwards on to the kitchen rug (don’t you recline on your kitchen rug when you need a break?) and tried to take a drink.  Well, gravity prevailed and she ended up coughing and choking on the water.

I flew across the room and had her vertical and flipped over immediately.  She coughed and coughed- the cough of a baby who has water down the wrong tube.  I suspected that she might throw up.

Then suddenly, she stopped coughing and walked out of the room, saying “shoes on!”

I collapsed on to the floor, laughing hysterically.
