I felt horrible about the whole thing. How many mothers have picked their kids up like this a million times and had nothing go wrong? We hold her by the arms all the time while she practices walking. I know it wasn't really my fault... still felt bad, though.
Fast-forward to that afternoon. I was changing the sheets on my bed when my little one disappeared into the bathroom and within five seconds managed to grab my deodorant and may or may not have taken the cap off and licked it. My oldest claims she saw her lick it. I grabbed the deodorant from her, and I'm pretty sure all the color drained from my face as I read "Call a doctor or poison control immediately if ingested." Seriously? Am I going to have to call the pediatrician again today for another problem with the same kid?!? They're going to take her away from me! I immediately started checking her over, but I could find no traces of it on her face. I had my nose jammed in her mouth, and I didn't smell anything, so I'm pretty sure I got to her before she could do anything. Thankfully, no additional phone calls to the pediatrician were necessary.
So, my youngest is absolutely fine. You would never know that she partially dislocated her elbow. It's crazy that about two minutes after it was popped back into place she was using it like nothing ever happened. Moral of today's
