I was hoping to have some pretty pictures up today showing you the cute new felt hair clips I made for Paige, however…I have something even better. A story. Real life. My life…
Yesterday, we were rushing out the door to get to the zoo super early to meet my friends and their babies to beat the heat! As we were literally on our way out the door I noticed that P had a runny nose and was a bit congested. I stopped to check her out because I knew that her cousins were sick. Not wanting to get anyone else potentially sick, we decided to stay home from the zoo. I pulled out my handy NoseFrida, because I am normally the bomb dot com at using it on Paige. Seriously, ask Reagan. (FYI the NoseFrida is a tool to help you suck snot out of your toddler’s nose). I get all set up in my ridiculous stance on the couch with Paige all ready to go and I put that NoseFrida right up there and I SUCK as hard as I can….
And a huge ripping pain rolls through my neck and the right side of my upper shoulder and back!
I lay down. Pain. I try to sit up. HORRIBLE pain. I lay down. Paige crawls on top of me. PAIN. I get kneed in the face and have a toddler crushing my bladder. PAIN. I text my sister, “No joke I just tried to NoseFrida Paige and a sharp pain shot through my neck and shoulders. Someone might have to take both of us to the doctor!”. My sister writes back, “No that is just a pulled muscle or a gas pain or tired nerves. You’ll be ok – from Mom.”
Well, whatever kind of strange spasm/pinched nerve I had, I literally spent the rest of the day on the couch in an awkward position watching Netflix. In pain. Thank goodness for my sister and my mom who were able to watch Paige!
I jacked my back sucking snot…
The things we do as parents, right? Luckily, I am much better today! Just sore! It’s a good thing this kid is cute :)
PS – These photos were taken at my sister’s place in Utopia, TX. One morning, I found a spot where the lighting was seriously money and we took some photos! If you want to see some updated photos of her cute bunch, check them out here – Urban Family!
