A worried mother was overwhelmed with dread when she saw an enormous black mark on her top of her daughter’s lips. When she spotted the huge circular mark, Darian Depreta played with her beautiful little girl Bella. She attempted to wipe it off but when it did not vanish, she began to panic.
She said: “That’s how I’m playing with Bella today and noticing that her mouth’s roof is black. I’m trying to wipe it to see if it’s coming off, and that’s not it. I call Chandler in a panic right away, my mother and best friend. “I’m making her a doctor’s appointment about 30 minutes after I noticed her mouth.”
The nurse also briefly attempted to wash it off when they went to the GP, then she said she never saw anything like it. Doctors then suggested that it might be a birthmark, but Darian, who lives in the US, insisted that it wasn’t because she constantly taps her teeth to wash it.
Darian said: “I’m told now that my daughter’s going to be set up with 2 specialists. After insisting that it wasn’t a birthmark on her mouth’s ceiling, the NP chose to take another look at this medical mystery.” I’m pointing out that it appears a little black on the side and she goes in there attempting to scrape it. “And then they realized what it was…” ONLY TO FIND OUT WAS CARDBOARD FROM THE CARDBOARD.
“In that cabinet, I can never demonstrate my face again. I cried/laughed directly for 5 strong minutes.”
While the scenario is embarrassing to Darian, she appreciates that it might have been much worse. Posting on Facebook, she writes: “Yes, she could have choked it and I’m grateful to God that she didn’t.” The only reason she was posted was that she was okay after crying, panicking and trying to figure out what it was (doctors didn’t even understand).
The laugh was after everything’s tempest. “And I’m not” letting “my child chew on cardboard. She’s teething and she’s trying to chew on EVERYTHING.” She just occurred to discover a cabinet while I loaded the dishwasher, which I took off from her immediately, of course. “I just didn’t know that there was a piece stuck there. I immediately inspected her lips for tiny bits.”
