.....a little green button could cause so much trouble. After a somewhat stressful day of doctors appointments we had a bit of a situation last night.
I thought it would be a good idea to take the girls for their first walk together. Daddy guided S on her bike and I pushed B in the stroller. It was a good walk. I'm thinking yes, S will go down pretty easy because we've worn her out. This was not to be. S found a little green button and proceeded to put it in her nose. Yes, we caught her the first time and now we realize we should have taken it away, but we didn't. The second time she put it in her nose and when she couldn't get it out she proceeded to panic and pushed it further up. And so started our evening of a trip to Urgent Care and then to the Emergency Room. We thought Urgent Care could take care of it, but they didn't have the tools needed, because our girl had shoved the button so far up her nose they just couldn't get to it.
So off to the Emergency Room we go. Thank goodness they were not busy and we were seen to right away. After strapping her down and more screaming, a very good group of nurses and a doctor removed the button.
We had a long talk about how we don't put anything in our noses, including fingers and buttons are for shirts, pants and pj's only.
