Rant: Feeling No Pain--A Very Improper Math Equation

1 bottle children's chewable grape tylenol /2 (crazy 3 year olds hiding and stuffing their faces behind the couch) + 2 oblivious older siblings in the same room = 5 minute phone call with poison control + Mom's minor heart attack x 10 minutes (1/2 yelling + 1/2 stern lecturing)

Yes laura, you can look forward to your children blogging about poo contractions, just like jess. She's totally fine and normal. ;)

oh my goodness! terrifying! why is that even if you think your house if child proof ....it itsn't. not to scare you, but Tylenol overdoses can be VERY serious. i guess poision control calculated how much each took and their weights? (sorry, as an ER nurse, tylenol OD's are notoriously bad)

Yes--everyone's ok. Apparently based on their weight and the bottle size, each would've had to eat more than the bottle. And there's no way that one of them even got the entire thing. They would've fought to the death to divide them up, plus I knew it wasn't brand new. Still scary, but no problems.
