    I think I remember this one, Is the one where April goes to the hospital and gets her stomach pumped, or am I thinking of some other story?

    Kids are swallowing button batteries!!! If you have kids keep them locked up. Magnets are another nasty.

    Yep normal toddler behavior, everything goes into the mouth, except vegetables which would be good for her.

    This family is horrible with kids. I have two-year-old granddaughter and I know way better than that.

    Yep… kids swallow all kinds of things. Just ask any ER physician.

    There are several ways this can end, none of them particularly good.

    The first thing I thought of when seeing this strip was Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Blume, in particular the final chapter.

    This is the storyline where Farley arrives just as April swallows the button. He quickly performs the Heimlich maneuver on her, saving her life. Unfortunately, the effort is just too much for Ol’ Farl and he tragically passes away.

    A good standing operating procedure when dealing with people of any age, but especially children, is THINK: What happens next?

    Anything smaller than the kid’s entire head should not be in her possession.
