Flash forward to yesterday. While cleaning the bathroom I saw a piece of pink sitting on the floor. It was the missing ear bud!! He didn't eat it after all! My son was going to be fine. I had been having nightmares about that for days and then found that piece. How did it get there? Did he spit it out and it fell off me? Did I actually succeed in getting it out? Who knows. But what I do know is I am greatful for finding it and it has been put up and away.
I know babies do stuff like this, but I was not ready for it.
