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.
