As I was brushing my teeth last night, my nose started bleeding.
And I was like: what the HECK? My nose hasn't bled since that time when I was six and learned the hard way that there is a limit to nose picking.
I tried to recall the First Aid class I took when Babybel was little-er. What's the current stance on Nose Bleed Cessation? Pinch, but don't tilt. Or else you'll drown your child in their own nose blood.
So, there I am, pinching and not tilting my head back, so I don't drown, my toothbrush hanging out of my mouth. Which is about a 7 on my scale of 1 to 10 of Unpleasant Things. Because I hate toothpaste. It's disgusting and makes me gag. And THAT made me think of being pregnant. Because the two times I've been with child, my already eager gag reflex went into overdrive. Just looking at toothpaste would make me gag. So, I didn't brush my teeth for nine months.
Luckily, I was born with the good kind of teeth. It's something they don't tell you. Some people are just born with good teeth. Yes, brush your teeth, blah, blah, blah. But, those who are going to get cavities, will get them. And those who won't, won't. Brushing the "sugar bugs" off, as we say at home, will certainly reduce the number of cavities you get, but as I said, you'll get them or you won't.
But, that's neither here nor there. We're not talking about dental hygiene today. We're talking about nosebleeds. And nose picking.
