Beware Of the Pencil Lead...


I can't remember if I posted about this already.  It is from May.  I just came across these pix as I was catching up on my picture ordering.  I haven't had any pictures printed since February.  I know.  It's horrible. 
Anyhow, like I said, this happened in May and I apologize if you have already read about this.  I suffer from severe "Mom Brain".


B had some mechanical pencils that were given to her as a gift.  Well, this piece of lead fell out of one of the pencils and got stuck in our carpet....
 This injury is a result of the lead getting stuck in the carpet...
Mel stepped on it.  It punctured her skin and came out the other side.  It reminded me of a sewing needle and her foot was the fabric.

She started screaming and I didn't know what was wrong.  I just assumed B did something to make her mad so I picked her up and tried to soothe her, but that didn't work.  Finally, she pointed at her foot and I saw the lead stuck in it.  I carefully pulled it out and it all came out in one piece, thank goodness.

Mechanical pencils are no longer allowed in our house!!!
