5-cent coin

I have a three year old son who has been super active, super playful and hard headed. I let him play hard with his tito or else I’ll hear his loud wail as if somebody died, LOL! At an early age, we let him handle coins which he usually puts on his pocket or even on his piggy bank. We have trained him not to put anything on his mouth especially coins. But kids will always be kids. Lately, he had an accident that made our world turned almost upside down. He accidentally swallowed a 5-cent coin and he only told us the two days after. Holy cow! We can’t even tell whether he’s telling the truth or not. I even confirm if it was those rare coin he usually sees. Being the worried parents, the husband (I can’t come with them as I am nursing a little girl) immediately rushed him to his pediatrician. Since it was days already after that, we weren’t able to monitor his poop. The pediatrician checked on his lungs and did some tests to make sure that the coin didn’t reach his lungs. Now, he is banned of handling money especially coins. Lesson learned the hard way for the parents. Tsk tsk tsk.
