Don't Put That ________in Your________!

This is something I've had to say several times in my life. J made it official today that I have now said that to each of my children at least once. We were enjoying a nice quiet evening when all of sudden J started crying. I asked what was wrong and S answered, "She put that thing from the end of a pen up her nose." Luckily I've had experience in this department. I got some toilet paper, plugged the nostril that did not have a foreign object stuffed up it, and told her to blow hard. She did and the little pen end started to poke through. Then, we got tweezers and pulled it out. What a relief for poor little J. Then I told her "Don't put things in your nose!"

We've also had peanuts, erasers, and candy up noses. Candy & rhinestones in ears. The rhinestones ended in a trip to an ear, nose, and throat specialist where they had to flush her ear out. I now own a nice long syringe so that I can flush ears out all on my own (I could be a dr.)!

Our worse incident was when we had a marble in a place that would not be appropriate to mention. I was sooo mad. I told the sweet little angel to, "SIT ON THAT TOILET AND POOP THAT MARBLE OUT AND DON'T GET UP UNTIL IT COMES OUT!!!" Thankfully we have never had a repeat of that incident and hopefully we never will.

oh my goodness! That is hilarious. I'm just waiting for the day that I have to use that phrase. Right now all Jaxon does is stick his finger up his nose!

Too funny! So far, KNOCK ON WOOD, we haven't had any of these issues. Fingers are the only things in noses around here. (ugh!)

LOL! That was so funny. Those are the things we never thought about when we dreamed of being parents! Maybe that is a good thing. ;)

Wahahahaha!! Thanks so much for teh laugh. I've not ever had to have that talk, but I was a kid who wanted a nose ring back in the day and put Barbie's ring in my nose *sigh* ;)

Oh that is too much! Thankfully, my children haven't put things in their orifices much. Although Elsie has been eating ornaments off the tree all morning!
