nothing says Sunday like a trip to the ER!

this morning we were woken by big sister running into the room to tell us that little sister had inserted a bead up her nose and couldn't get it out. I dont think Mike and I have EVER got out of bed so fast! After inspection and confirmation of said alien object lodged in nasal passage, we jumped in the car and headed for the ER. It took 4 different methods but the Doctor was finally able to dislodge the 'bead', which turned out to be a freshly shucked navy bean from one of Pipers plants. Paisley wasn't too put out by any of it, she was a little embarassed but didn't cry or squirm in hospital, she just grimaced a little and was back to normal as soon as the eeewy gooey beastie was thrown away.

aaaah, kids.

After Paige did this twice the Pediatrician taught me "the technique". Hold the other nostril shut and blow into her mouth. It worked!

Oh my, and a bean of all things!! We spent the morning at the ER too. Dillon pulled a very heavy shelf down on his poor little fingers. Life with kids, never dull.

Oh my goodness. That is funny, cute, and gross all rolled in one. That poor baby must have wanted to die. Poor thing. I bet she'll never do that again.
