Sean, Hannah and Lydia are consumed this week with Music Man rehearsals. So it's me and the younger five fending for ourselves here. I'm always amazed at how family dynamics change when there is a different mix of kids.
Tonight at the dinner table our discussion revolved about noses- who has put what up their nose and how Mom managed to get it out. I'm proud to report that all but Baby John (though I know he was taking notes from his high chair) had their own story to tell.
Miriam put an Altoid up her nose and kept sucking it in instead blowing it out. The thing was melting and the peppermint was making her eyes water profusely. It looked painful!
Elizabeth wedged a polly pocket shoe in her nostril in the spot that goes around the curve that is really hard to reach even with tweezers. That was a scare. After that incident I vacuumed up those shoes whenever they were laying on the floor.
Joseph got a pencil eraser stuck sideways in his nose. His nose started to run and made the thing so slippery I could barely get a hold of it. He kept sucking it in, too.
Rebekah shoved a rather large Lego up her nose. Thankfully, it didn't stretch her nostril out permanently. Now that would be a new trend!
How about your kids? What weird things have they stuck up their noses and how ever did you get it out?
