This is Mimi's new nickname... of course, she doesnt know it, and we wont tell her because we dont want to make her feel bad, but she earned the title today. I was working with something and was really focused. Hubby was taking care of the girls, and Mimi was a bit cranky because she wanted to go to sleep. So, hubby started getting the bath ready, and asked me to hold Mimi while he was getting the bath and milk ready.

I was really focused and really needed to finish something (hence why I wasnt participating of bath time), so I was holding her with one arm and continued working with the other. Minutes before I was cleaning my ears and the Q-Tip box was right there, and Mimi grab it. I didnt pay attention to her because the box was closed and continued to work.

Just a few minutes later there was a SCREAM OF PAIN.... who? me!! Mimi managed to open the box and inserted a Q-Tip ALL THE WAY inside my eardrum. I screamed, cry, and screamed a bit more... I was not able to stand the pain, and I couldnt even hear... I was feeling deaf from that ear. We decided to call my mom, as it was night already and there was no point for us to take the girls out to go to the ER, and I was not going to be able to drive... The pain was sooo much!!

When I got to the ER, I found out that it is so swollen and full of blood that there is not much that she can see (the blood was not dripping, it was just inside). There was no way for her to see the extent of the damage... Anyway, I was sent home with a pain killer and referred to an ENT doctor.

The good thing is that Mimi inserted in my ears and not in hers... I have always been so careful with the Q-Tips being out of reach, and I just cant believe this happened while she was IN MY ARMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There is no such thing as a "boring day" in my house, isnt it?
