Yesterday a friend of mine was over and we were sitting at the kitchen table talking and Ana Claire was sitting with us doing some of her crafts. A bead craft to be exact. Do you know where I am going with this? She plays with beads all the time and never once has she stuck one where she shouldn't. Well yesterday she did. Out of the blue she announced she stuck one up her nose. I asked her to repeat herself and she just burst into tears and started freaking out. I laid her down and shined a flashlight up her nose and sure enough there was a bead lodged snuggly in her nostril. Well we immediately left for the pediatrician's office. Clay did this when he was younger but he stuck a rock up his nose. I tried to explain to her that she had to calm down, not to sniff etc.... I tried to explain to her that there would be NO SHOTS! The dr would just put a little tool up her nose pull the bead out and we would be on our way home. She was scary calm in the car until we reached the doctors office. Then she totally freaked out screaming and crying. All eyes were on us when we went into the doctors office. I was signing in and the nurse was about to escort us back and she said oh no her nose is starting to bleed. I looked and I said no, that is the bead. I pushed down on her nostril and out popped the bead in a glob of snot. Thank God for snot. ;) I was so relieved that it came out and we didn't have to hold her down to get it out. That would have been traumatizing for all of us.
