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.
