Nose bleed diariesBB’s had one of her nose bleeds. Again. They always happen at night and are usually discovered when one of us checks on her before we go to bed. It’s always a shock – once again there was blood everywhere: all over her face, the pillow and the sheets, and this time there was even an eerie hand print for good measure (pictured).

Despite having to get her out of bed to clean her down, strip the sheets and remake the bed she usually has no memory of what happened in the morning. I’ve got no idea what’s causing them, and am unsure whether to go to the doctor or not. People say they’re quite common place – there was always someone as school having nose bleeds, wasn’t there?

I just don’t want BB to become one of those kids at school always remembered for having nose bleeds/a snotty nose/accidents/some other foible….
