There's someTHING in my 3 yr olds throat- Update!

Hi! I posted a question this afternoon because while check my daughters throat with a flashlight I saw what looks like cartilage down her throat. I took her in and apparently 1 in every 100 kids or so can stick their tongue out so far and flatten it just right, that you can SEE their Epiglottis! Pretty weird looking! I thought I'd post this update in hopes that in case any other moms see this in their childs throat they wont be scared like I was. =)
