Before I say anything else, let me first say that I love my daughter.

However, I'm NOT a fan of her fascination with her nose.

She picks it all the time. I know it is normal for kids to dig for gold, but it's constant.

Yesterday, I got a frantic call from my wife telling me that I needed to get home immediately. She said our daughter had shoved something up her nose and we might have to take her to the doctor to get it out.

When I got there, I tried to grab it with some tweezers and was able to yank it out (saving me a doctor bill that would have added a few exclamation points to the title of this post).

It turns out it was just a small piece of something we got for her at the dollar store.

And this wasn't the first time. When she was younger, she managed to lodge a pea up there.

As much as I hate to admit it, I don't think this will be the last. Only a few hours after the latest fiasco, I looked over at her to see her trying to get a Cheerio up there.

As frustrated as I get, I have to remember that she probably just takes after me, her father, who managed to do this three different times.

Perhaps she is having trouble swallowing, and is trying to get nourishment by some other means.
Poor girl is probably starving.

I shoved a bean up my nose and broke a pencil in my ear when I was young. I can blame it on inspector gadget...I don't know what the kids these days can blame nose banking (deposits - get it lol. I crack myself up!) on.

I guess they just blame it on dad.
