I’m sitting next to a Squdge, feeding the hungry 5-month-old a bottle. I look down at his smiling face as he gurgles a happy “thank you” and smile a “you’re welcome” his direction. One of the other children asks me a question so I turn and talk to them for a moment. I look back down at Squdge and notice something that wasn’t there before – something on the bottle. It’s on the ring right next to the nipple, right next to my infant’s mouth. Wait a second, did it just MOVE?!
…time to perform an immediate close-up inspection…
Foreign object identified.
My exact words, “Are you kidding me?! There is a slug on my baby’s bottle! Right next to his mouth!”
In my house. It wasn’t there five seconds ago. What is this, the Twilight Zone?
