Digging for Gold

As most 3 year olds and any child for that matter, Addison is constantly picking her nose. She does it a lot when she is getting embarrassed or trying to avoid doing something. Like, picking her nose is the hardest thing to do in the world and she couldn’t possibly be bothered with picking up her toys because she is doing important work by digging for gold. 

She has been having a really hard time taking naps lately, and is fighting them with all her will. So, I expected no less when I picked her up from pre-school on Monday. Only, she fights them there, by taking our her rubber bands and chewing on them until one of her teachers takes them away. When she got in the car, she told me that she stuck a rubber band up her nose. I told her that we do not stick things up our noses and and she nodded like she totally got it. 
The next day John was putting her down for her nap while I was blog stalking, and he called me into her room. “What does this look like to you? It looks like a rubber band” 
Me: “Well, she told me yesterday that she put a rubber band up there, but I assumed she got it out.”
John: ” Go get me some tweezers, please.”
On my way to get tweezers, I grabbed my camera( what? this was totally a blogging moment!) When Addison realized kinda how serious this was, she started getting scared. And crying, just because she was scared.

John was able to get it out, but I informed Addison the next time we might not be able to get it out ourselves and it would involve a trip to the ER with lots of needles and poking.

I think she understood, but now she has some strange freak out around anyone with a white coat. I don’t know what that is about.

  1. What is it with kids & their noses? I've never understood it.

  2. I had to dig corn out of Mason's nose….and after I retrieve 1 piece…he sneezed and out shot piece #2.

  3. Sounds just like a story about my baby sister. When she was about 2 we thought she had a really bad sinus infection, so she stayed on abx's for a week or so and it never got better. While Ashley and I were playing with her one day we noticed something in her nose and tried to get it out. We couldn't get it out so they took her to the dr. When they pulled it our in was a wadded up piece of coloring book paper that had been up there for God knows how long. Needless to say we know what cause the horrific sinus infections. Glad to know Dr. Dad came to the rescue of the lost rubber band

  4. Okay, thats freakin scary! Poor thing.

  5. Poor baby! Maybe she'll think twice before she sticks anything up there :). Glad you got it out.

  6. Poor baby! Maybe she'll think twice before she sticks anything up there :). Glad you got it out.

  7. Oh my gosh, I LOVE that you were like "Wait honey, let me get the camera!" Ahahaha! Save these pictures forever… they are going to make great, "Clean your room or I'm showing your boyfriend those pictures" pictures :)

    & thanks for the sweet comment on my video blog! I use the crap out of all 3 of my little lip glosses! It will be a sad sad day when I run out! Why is is that when I buy $10 lip glosses I hate them & when I'm given free ones I'm in love? Crazy bones!

  8. Hilarious story that I'm so glad happened to your kids & not mine! ;> James used to stick pretzel sticks out is mouth and nose when he was supposed to be sleeping. Then when I'd go in his room to fuss at him there'd be this 3 year old walrus boy staring back at me! Yep, these shenanigans must run in the family!!!
    God's blessings sis,
    Love you!
    Sarah :D
