Giving a Whole New Meaning to Green Boogers

Lucy has been supremely interested in the contents of her nose lately. Any time she isn't 100% otherwise occupied she has a finger in her nose. And sometimes it doesn't matter what else she has to hold her attention, she only wants to probe the inside of her face.

After dinner, she likes to relax with a nice picking session. She was still at the table the other night when she began. On her plate were the remnants of her dinner. A small puddle of ketchup, some chicken nugget breading and the last of her peas. I was in and out, clearing dishes and whatnot. A few minutes later I wiped her down and set her free.

Half an hour or so later in the living room, I caught her eating peas. Perplexed, I asked her where she got them, and she informed me that they came from her nose. I immediately grabbed her and peered up her nostrils. I couldn't see anything, so I assumed she had already gotten them all out and eaten them.

Until this morning, when the ladies at the Y informed me that Lucy sneezed out some peas during my workout.

Guess who's getting a flashlight stuck up her nose as soon as Dr. Dad gets home?

My son did that with chicken. Amazing how much can fit up those little noses, isn't it? Never a dull moment when kids are in our lives. That'll be a good story to share with her future spouse.

Amazing. I used to just keep the food (that I had to finish before leaving the table) in my mouth no matter how awful it tasted.

During a brief stint of working in a school office, a little girl got several hair beads stuck up her nose. Those big plastic ones. They had to call the paramedics, who did not have the proper tools, so they had to take her to the hospital. It was sooooo hard not to laugh at that poor little girl.
I bet the Y ladies felt the same way.
