objects in nose are closer than they appear
After Addelyn's nap yesterday (or should I say, no nap, don't ask) I had set her up on the table and was talking to her face to face. She leaned back her head and I noticed something white up in her nostril. And when I say UP, I mean UP there. Come to find out that during Addelyn's time in her room (the supposed nap time) she had rolled up paper and stuck it up her nose. We worked on getting it out for about fifteen minutes- blowing, pushing from the outside, trying to pull it out- but there was no way! So off to the doctor we headed. Three instruments later, he finally got the little ball of paper out of her little nose (don't worry it was just a page she had ripped out of a book, ahhh!). He at one point during the ordeal mentioned that he thought we may have to put her out to get the item out of her nose. THANKFULLY it didn't end up having to go that way. Her poor little nose was sore but he got it out. I can only HOPE she has learned her lesson! You just never know with toddlers though, especially my toddler!
