Little vampire

Warning! Hey Mom, yes, I'm talking to you Mother...skip over this post!

Ugh, Monkey had an unexplained vampire moment. Chris, Monkey and I were out trying to take care of some of the last wedding errands. In order to keep Monkey happy, I was giving her Chex to snack on. I would hand her a piece and wait for her to "ask" for more. A few pieces into the routine, she was making a different sound unlike her "more" sound. I turned around and looked at her and coming out of both sides of her mouth was blood. I swear she looked like a little vampire after a feeding! I quickly threw my seat belt off and told Chris to pull over. I grabbed a wipe to clean off Monkey's hand and face and did a thorough search of both. I even told Monkey to open her mouth - which she did - so that I could examine all possible body parts. NOTHING. Hmmm. I'm not sure if she bit her cheek or if maybe a corner of the Chex caught on her gums, but there was quite a bit of blood.

I'm going to have to keep an extra eye on her during daylight hours...just to make sure she doesn't start having sensitivity to sunlight!
