(Nearly) Wordless Wednesday: Crime Scene Investigation

I was startled by the sound of screaming coming from Nate's bedroom at naptime. Upon entering, I discovered this grisly scene. And almost suffered an anxiety attack.

Who could commit such a heinous act?

Our one clue: a ring of blood around Nate's right nostril.

We phoned the pediatrician and made a hasty trip into the office, fearing the worst. It was at our destination that the perpetrator was confirmed. An abrasion in the nasal cavity. Remedy is Vaseline applied nightly.

Mommy's heart can resume beating.

I freaked out just looking at that picture! I would have totally lost it. I'm glad he's okay!

Wow, I would have totally lost it! That is a lot of blood. I'm so glad it wasn't something worse.

Katie said...

Oh. My. Lord. My heart stopped beating for a second there.

So glad that you went in. That was very similar to the gruesome scene that I happened on a few months back when Will's ear drum ruptured during a nap.

It's so scary, isn't it? I am so glad that he is okay.

Kids! Will we survive them?!?
