In what could have been a tragically ironic twist of fate, Deena performed the Heimlich maneuver on the Little Sister this afternoon. The girls were out looking for houses with Nana. While they were stopped on the curb waiting for a realtor, Deena happened to look in the back and see Olivia gasping for air: She was choking on a miniature pretzel.
She tore her out of the car seat, performed the Heimlich, and all was well and good.
The Big Sister was busy with something else and didn’t notice; we were lucky.
