Quick, Think!

We were having a normal conversation on the phone; I’m at work – she’s at home with our twins.

Our infant sons are in their high chairs eating finger food.

Suddenly, in mid-sentence I hear: “Eric’s choking!”

My mind races and I shout: “Pick him up by his feet!”

Seconds later I hear: “He’s fine – it came out.”

Whew!

While it was not the recommended position or procedure – it worked!

I don’t remember if he had crammed too many Cheerios into his mouth or what – I did not think to ask.

Back to work.

P.S. As fathers, we have to be prepared for the unexpected – it is part of the dance of life.
