And baby goat and I had fun. He's so much more mobile now that he takes all your energy to keep him contained and occupied. We just got a bunch more baby-proofing stuff but we are still figuring out what and where he can get into and haven't put it all to use yet.
So baby goat was being a handful and heading towards the side table where I realize I've left a few diet coke cans, a kleenex and a purell bottle. I take the cans and the kleenex to recycle/throw them away and moved the purell bottle to the back.
You see where this has going. Apparently his arms have grown like 20 million inches since yesterday and when I got back 10 seconds later he was gumming the top of the purell bottle. (BIG red checkmark on the Mom Test)
A call to poison control later I was reassured that with the bottle closed any residue wouldn't be enough to hurt him. Apparently several teaspoons would be needed to get a babe of baby goat's size seriously ill. She said to watch him for an hour to be safe but really there was nothing to worry about.
I guess I'll need to remember to put it back as soon as I use it now. And I am glad it wasn't the pump bottle types but the type that is closed!
Later, after our hour of observation we get ready for bed. At that point I realize that I have no PJs clean that fit him. So we improvised. Thankfully the 9 months still fit in the torso!
(Aside #1: the rig that he is in is a Kerry Kuddler or Danny Sling. It enables him to sleep at an incline due to reflux. He's slept this way since we discovered he had reflux issues and it works wonders for us. We are going to start reducing the incline pretty soon though as he is outgrowing the reflux. Yay!)
(Aside #2: Baby wrinkles! So cute!)
Back to business, I certainly wasn't in top form tonight but I'm glad that it wasn't more serious than it might have been. I take comfort in the fact that I can't be the only one with embarrassing mom (almost) fails. Right? Please right?
So please consider my cautionary tale of the evening.
Oh, and baby goat... he seems no worse for the wear:
