I called my Mom last night after this funny story happened, as she needs to take some credit since she's always stocking our house with peanuts to snack on when she comes to visit...here's what happened, I was on the computer and Madeline was watching cartoons out front snacking on peanuts, this was our conversation:
Madeline: (walks slowly in the computer room sniffling) "Mommy, I got a peanut stuck up my nose."
Me: "What!?" "How did it get there and is it still stuck!?"
Madeline: "I put it there mommy. No it's not there because I did this... (she sniffs in really hard)"
Me: "Now you know Madeline you're not supposed to stick anything up your nose. Don't do it again, okay?"
Madeline: "Okay mommy, I promise I won't." (She goes back out front to watch her cartoons)
*In the mean time I keep hearing her sniffle. 5 minutes later she comes back to the computer room.
Me: "No more peanuts up our nose I hope!?"
Madeline: (starts tearing up with a really sad, fearful face) "Mommy the peanut is still stuck in my nose!" (she starts crying)
Me: "What, I thought it was out?" (I proceed to turn on a bright light) "It's okay, calm down and let mommy see." (I go get a tissue from the bathroom) "Okay now mommy wants you to blow really hard into the tissue, just like you do when you're sick and have yuckies in your nose." "1, 2, 3, blow!"
*Out comes the peanut - a whole peanut!
Madeline: (stops crying and starts giggling) "Oh so all I had to do is get a wipe and blow the peanut out, I'm so silly!"
I guess it's just the beginning as a mother to deal with these childhood "happenings"...first constipation, then pinworms, and now in adamant objects shoved up the nostrils. Sigh. What's next? LOL
