Noses and Hair Elastics don't go together!

+ = Annalise's Nostril!!

Yes, you guessed it, I had my first "nose incident" with Annalise. At night sometimes she'll pull the elastic ties out of her hair and throw them on the floor. Well, she was being really naughty the other day so I sent her to her room and went to play the piano for some stress relief. Well, not 2 pages into my music and I hear frantic screaming. It's the kind of scream when there is a hideous spider or something, so I go running ....expecting to kill a bug of some kind. NOPE! Annalise is freaking out, screaming there is something in her nose, "A HAIR BAND" she's screaming and sobbing at the same time. And boy was I mad. Not only did I have to take her to the doctor, but I had just put Ava down for a much needed nap. So we tear Ava out of bed and head out the door. I probably should have comforted her more, but why the heck did she shove a hair tie up her nose? So on the way to the doctor she's crying saying things like, "Is the doctor gonna cut my nose off and give me a new one?" At least I told her THAT wouldn't happen. They took us right back and it took 4 adults to hold her down. She was crying so hard and was begging me to make them stop. I was crying too. Poor kid. The doctor (after LOTS of trying) was finally able to reach it. She said we were lucky because it was almost out of reach. Whew was I glad it was over and Annalise was ecstatic to get two stickers on the way out! :-)

Yikes! Hopefully we have passed the "up the nose stage". Poor kiddo, poor mommy.

What a nightmare! We haven't had any nose incidents...just choking scares. I can see Jadyn doing something like that just to see what would happen. I pray that she doesn't. At least everything turned out OK.

I can't believe you are having more medical drama in your house! You have definately got to be on a first name basis with all their staff! I'm glad everything turned out okay and it sounds like the scared straight tactic worked and she probably won't be doing that again any time soon! What would they have done if it was out of reach?? You probably don't want to know.
