Re-post – 8 Month Old Does CPR; Saves Gloworm

My 4 year old and I were rooting around in the baby toys today to pick something out for the baby to play with and he came across his old Gloworm, “Glowie.”  (I know, very unique and creative)

He was pretty delighted to see it, but not because he remembered it.  He just though it was a neat toy.  It made me think of the comic that I made of him saving her after he carelessly crushed her head under his foot.

Unfortunately, in moving the blog to wordpress, apparently the comic was lost in the shuffle.  The post is there but the comic is not.  So I found it again and decided to repost because it’s just so darn cute.  The big shame is that the original pictures are all gone, lost in the Great Hard Drive Crash of 2007.  I wasn’t even thinking about making such a comic at the time; I was just snapping pictures of him with his toy.  Later when looking at them I realized they resembled the graphics that I have seen oh-so-many times in CPR recert class.  Enjoy!

Wow! CPR on Glowie. Now there’s a future nurse!

Hi Gina,

Thanks for sharing your comic its really cute. Your kid is really intelligent

Love this! So glad you reposted!! So clever.

Hi Gina,

My first time here, a really nice blog. That baby is so precocious! Did you teach him CPR or is he a natural born nursing star?
