Get This Off Me!!

I had just slipped into sleep last night when I woke up to Rachel crying. Assuming it was potty time, I dragged my sleepy self out of bed and walked to her room to help her. When I got there, she said, between sobs, "Get this off me!!" I assumed she was just not entirely awake, so I helped her out of bed and into the bathroom. As she sat down, she again sobbed, "Get this off me!" Then I noticed her finger. She had wrapped one of her hair elastics around it, and her finger was in the process of turning a very ugly shade of dark purple! I pulled the elastic off and immediately her finger started looking a little more normal, although a little red. I am so thankful it woke her up because the last thing we need is a little more medical excitement at this house!!

Note to self: take Rachel's elastics out before she goes to bed from now on!
