So I a sitting in the Living Room talking to my husband when my 3 year old came up to me and said so calmly and matter of factly "Mommy, can you help me get the bead out my nose?" I slowly turn my head to her in absolute disbelief and say "What?" And she again just as calmly says "Can you get the bead out my nose?" My husband and I look at eachother. I tell her to come close. In her right nostril is a bead. I try to press it out from posteriorly with no success. I tell my husban to get something - anything to help me get it out. She starts to fuss and cry. I tell her to stay calm and I find something similar to tweezers and, like magic, I get it out. I comfort her and am glad that I avoided an ER visit. Doctor skills or mommy skills? Maybe both.
Oh, and I started a new blog. I just found out last week that I am pregnant! So I have a blog completely dedicated to that journey at http://secondpeanutexpecting.blogspot.com/.
