In the Nose

We had our first object-up-the-nose experience with Jake today. He had taken a jewelry pin from my dresser and taken off the safety back to it. He was playing with it and Mike saw him put it in his nose and then show it off.


Luckily he didn't push it up very far and it had good gripping edges, so I was able to gently and easily remove it with tweezers.


Not a dull moment being the parent of a 3-year old!

Any chance you'd post a picture of this nose object? I'm not envisioning it well. Glad you got it out!!!

Yikes! Maddy has put a button, a pebble, and a blueberry up her nose. Last week she put a bead that fit exactly in her ear. I had to hold her down so she wouldn't push it further in and managed to get it out without incident. She did the same thing, showed it off. Good thing!

I remember getting a pebble in my nose when I was in daycare and multiple people came to me to figure out what to do about it, and finally someone just told me to blow my nose and that's what got it out.

Here's hoping you don't have to deal with more objects in head-holes! It's scary!
