I enjoy reading The Naughty Corner and the discussion I read today is on things that kids stuff up their noses.
Seriously weird, people. And I can say that as a confirmed nose stuffer as a kid. I put peas up my nose on a regular basis. Thank goodness Poppa knew how to get them out. Also things in my ears. Now the only things that will go in my ears are earrings through my earlobes. That’s it! I’m traumatized enough!
DD put a purple fluffy craft ball up her nose in kindergarten. I have no idea why. She claimed that it had fallen out when she was playing in the playground but I couldn’t see it on the softfall and I was rather suspicious. Increased snot flow (yuck!), funny snores, and since I had to take her to the GP the next day, I asked him to look up her nostrils. Sure enough, there was a small purple ball which he was able to retrieve with tweezers. He’s a dad, too, so he kindly provided us with a small specimen jar to keep the offending craft ball. I’d include a photo just to prove it, but DD chucks a wobbly every time I pull it out of the cupboard, citing shame and embarrassment. Obviously I’ll have to keep that for her 18th birthday party!
