If you don't know the Heimlich.....



Learn fast! The kids were sitting down eating lunch (bread, lunchmeat, cheese, corn, and a fruit of their choice). Noah and I grabbed a pear while the girls grabbed tangerines. Noah and I finished ours and the girls were finishing up. I was logging my food in to sparks when I heard Katharine coughing. I looked at her for a 2nd (it almost sounded like that asthmatic cough...and yep...you get a winner!) and then she turned and looked at me pushing herself away from the table. I asked if she was ok and she didn't answer me..she just kept gagging. I ran over and flipped her onto the table and before I knew it my hands were on her stomach and the little piece of tangerine came sputtering out of her mouth. Point being...you never know when or where you may need it....it is best to KNOW it and NEVER need it...than to NEED it and never KNOW it!
