The other evening, Gentry swallowed a magnet. One of those small, round magnetic metal balls-they're a part of some toy kit with parts that the kids creatively stick together, and make plastic and magnet sculptures. In Gentry's case, they're usually either guns or swords (proof positive that he is, in fact, all boy), although the other day he DID ask for my advice on how to create a jail (he wanted one large enough to hold ALL of Alexis' Barbie dolls).
Shawna was, understandably, worried (about the magnet, not the jail; apparently Lex's Barbies are all rich and famous, and can afford Michael Vick's and OJ Simpson's attorneys, so the prison stay was short lived). She thought about taking Gentry in for an X-ray or CT scan, to find out where exactly the magnet was in his system, but the cost of those tests is astronomical.
So I installed a metal toilet.
