...Nose's aren't just for blowing

... While I sat at my computer this morning watching the Season Finale of Top Chef, Sweet Pea came into me and had a face full of boogers. I wiped her nose and told her I was almost done and we would get in the shower soon. Not 2 seconds later she was telling me again, "Mommy, nose boogers!". I wiped again and sent her on her way. I could hear her in the living room having a sneezing fit. She sneezed 1, 2, 3...6 times in a row. I didn't think too much of it, because we have had dusty boxes with Christmas decorations around the house lately. So time for the shower! (Yes, Sweet Pea takes showers with me. It saves water, time and my energy and well she loves it!) While we are in the shower her nose was getting more and more nasty. I just figured it was the hot water letting loose all those boogers.
I am shampooing my hair and rinsing it out when I open my eyes I notice a HUGE booger sticking out of Sweet Pea's nose. So of course the mother in me, grabs it. This is no ordinary booger. It was very plasticy feeling?! So I rinse it off and find...



...It is a piece from a Wal-mart/ Target sack. Lesson learned today... Noses aren't just for blowing, they are also putting foreign objects in?!

Oh Sweet Pea!



*****Melanie, Thank you for bringing that up! I was that Whipple child! I swallowed a quarter when I was 8 years old! So of course I knew better! But after talking to my mom, when she was little, she stuck a button up her nose! So I guess it does run in the family!"******

Oh, wow, it's good thing you got that out! And hey, my girls sometimes shower with me, too. In fact, I sometimes have to fight Jenna off to keep her out of the shower!

Seems like I remember one of the Whipple girls putting money up their nose and having to be taken to the emergency room! Does it run in the family genes?

Glad it came out! Boogers have been the topic of discussion with my kids for the past week...they wanna know what they are, why they have them, why it's not okay for them to pick their noses, but it's okay for me to do it to them...

One time my cousin shoved 3 trix cereal pieces up her nose and sneezed them out in the tub.

Oh! I just remembered one time when Erica was really little she was behind her moms couch and there was a little hole in it where she could pull out couch stuffing. She put a bunch up her nose and nobody knew until it rotted and she had to go to the dr for a BAD sinus infection.

Why do kids stick stuff up their noses? I can't imagine it feels very good.

Oh just lovely! I hate dealing with boogies. I would rather change and dirty diaper...I am not kidding either.

But on another note, I totally stuck different objects up my nose when I was a kid all the time. The hardest to get out for my parents (or so I am told) was the frozen pea's. Ha.
