Scrambled eggs and nose cheese

Ladybug has recently developed a habit of picking her nose. And if you happen to let her get close enough, she’ll pick your nose too.

She does this despite my best efforts to stop her. I’ve tried saying, “Eww! Gross!” but that only makes her laugh and do it more. I’ve tried ignoring her but then she sticks a finger up each nostril and growls to get my attention.

Now she’s discovered that she can stick other things than fingers up her nose, like scrambled eggs. In a recent nose-plugging incident, I thought I had pulled all of the egg out at the time she shoved it up there. But chunks were falling out throughout the day, like fat raindrops plopping on her upper lip.

Who knows how far up all that egg went. I just hope that gravity will eventually do the trick on getting it out.

On the bright, side didn't a doctor come out with a study recently that said eating your boogers will boost your immune system?

well at least if she shoves edibles up there you wont have to worry much about a trip to the ER...if you KNOW its just food, you can always have her make a hissy face to try & dislodge anything that gets stuck!!! good luck with that one- you might want to watch the play-do for now though!!!

Hey, that's good news about the boogers boosting your immune system considering her fingers go right in her mouth after they've been scavenging! And yeah, we haven't done any more Play-Do. It's not so much that I'm worried about her sticking it up her nose; it's what my mom said about my recent incident of having to pick up brown chunks of Play-Doh throughout the house. I said I hoped it was Play-Doh I was picking up and not something else, and my mom said, "Honey, that's why you don't buy brown Play-Do." In my defense, it came with the Beauty and the Beast Play-Do kit we bought!

I love it Michelle! I'm sure glad I'm not the only mom that is in constant fear of the wrong thing going up their noses. Just wait. You'll get a phone call from school one day saying that there is an eraser stuck in her nose. I once got a phone call from a daycare saying that a rock was stuck in my son's ear and another one in his nose. They were about to call 911. LOL! I told them to sit tight and I'd be there in a minute. Luckily, the ENT had a tool just for these kinds of emergencies.

I'm glad to see that other kids put things up their nose. My 18 month old puts just about anything in his nose, like dog food, lint, paper, whatever he can find. He was pointing to his nose one night and saying "momma", I notice that his nostril looked a little bigger. He had a piece of dry dog food stuck in his nose. We thought that we were going to have to make a trip to the ER but we finally got it out. So we have to watch him closely because we have had to remove something stuck in his nose about three times. This is something new to us because neither one of our daughters done this. Oh, and he likes to pick his nose as well as mine.

What's the tool the ENT had? Sounds like we all need to invest in one! We have to watch Ladybug around the cat food, too. She hasn't stuck it up her nose yet, but she has eaten a couple nuggets. At least they're not as big as dog food if they do go up her nose!
