The things that nobody tells you...

There really should be a class you can(and should) take to prepare you for Motherhood. I really wasn't prepared for all of the hats I would have to wear. Driver, negotiator, chef,psychologist ,maid ,teacher,playmate, social coordinator, the list goes on. Well, today, I had to add "Doctor" to the list. Cameron came to me and said, Mommy, I put something in my nose and I can't get it out". You did what??? So I have to lay him down, pin his hands and dig out a small piece of rubber, about the size of a button, out of his nose! There was no way I was going to wake Gracie from her nap, when it was the first time I had sat down all day, to take him to the doctor...The things nobody tells you...

Be sure to add *that* to your resume, Dr Mom!

When my son was three, I dug a bandaide wrapper out of the back of his throat with two fingers.

You do desperate things when your child is standing in front of you and he's not breathing!

So far, (knock on wood) there's nothing to dig out of anyone's nose!

On second thought.....

You know, with this horrible weather, I'm pretty bored. Maybe digging something out of someone's nose would add some excitement to my otherwise boring day?
