Ah, the joys of parenthood. When you're not busy catching that much-needed shuteye, you're spending almost every waking minute making sure your little ones aren't getting into any trouble. Unfortunately for one mother, that's exactly what happened. Or so she thought...
It all started when British mom Becky Stiles was changing her 10-month-old son, Harvey's diaper. "I tried to see if I could get to it, but he just screamed," Becky revealed, as she quickly noticed something strange perched on the roof of his mouth. What was it? Well, we guess that really depends on who we ask.
"I'm shaking, sweating, and holding back the tears. We put a torch on it, and his dad said, 'What the heck is that?'" Stiles explained of the 'hole' in little Harvey's mouth. After immediately calling a doctor, the panicked mother decided to rush her son to the hospital. Only what followed was nothing but… a whole lot of embarrassment.
Well, what was it exactly? "After about 30 seconds of looking, she said, 'That's a sticker,'" Stiles confessed of her not-so-smooth exchange with one of the nurses. "She put her finger in his mouth and hooked it out." Yikes, talk about a sticky situation.
But while Becky may have been left slightly red-faced, the mistaken mother can't help but laugh at the entire ordeal today. And she's not the only one: "Harvey found it funny too!" Stiles confessed. "We all carried on laughing as we made the walk of shame back to the car."
Of course, they're not the only ones left amused by the hilarious exchange. "I only uploaded it to a girls group for some giggles," the mom explained. But it wasn't long before her story went viral, and tons of users laughed about the documented exchange.
Safe to say, we've got a feeling Becky won't be living this one down anytime soon. But hey, at least her son doesn't have a gaping hole in the back of his mouth. Though we can't help but wonder what's going to be once the little troublemaker starts walking...
