You may be asking yourself what does this all mean. Well long story short...I was getting dressed this morning when Cole walked into my bedroom and quickly walked back out. I then asked him if everything was okay. He turned around with the look of extreme panic on his face. He proceeded to tell me that he moved his bed away from the wall and found a bean from the game Don't Spill the Beans (I don't know how it got separated from the others...in the game box high on the shelf). For some reason he could not think of why he placed the bean up his nose. Well at this point we both had the look of extreme panic on our faces. First we tried blowing his nose..didn't work. I then decided to call the doctor. They didn't see the urgency in the situation and offered a 2 o'clock appointment...it was 10 am. I could not just sit around and wait knowing there is a bean up my child's nose. Okay so this is when creative parenting comes into play. I was struck with this bright idea...suck it out with the vacuum. I'm sure you are thinking I'm absolutely crazy but don't worry I tried it out on myself first. I placed the hose 2 inches away (a safe distance) from his nose and thanks to the wonderful power of a shop vac it flew out of his nose straight down the hose never to be seen again.
