Lessons of the Day

I learned a few things today. Interesting things. Things you don't really consider before having kids.

1) My child is NOT smart enough to know not to shove a jelly bean up her nose.
2) Jelly beans can go extraordinarily far up one's nostril.
3) Seeing a Jelly bean protruding out the side of your child's nose near her eye is freaky.
4) Being that entirely freaked out will make one momentarily forget that they are currently dying from the flu.
5) Jelly beans will dissolve that far up one's nostril from the temperature and moisture and can eventually (say in about 25-30 minutes) be blown out.
6) Even Pediatricians can be amazed at how far up a nostril a jelly bean can fit.

OMG. I'm both freaking out in horror and giggling at the same time. You poor poor mama.

OMG - seeing it bulge out under her skin must have been horrible. I hope she wasn't in pain.
Several years ago one of my friend's little tykes put a couple of dried beans in his ear. After a few days they began to rot and he started to smell wretched, but no one could figure out where the smell was coming from. (Yes, I was there and it was gross beyond words.)
Finally, after a trip to the doc, the offending culprit was removed. And Lukas had had enough baths to last a lifetime.

Ewwwwww! Jelly bean boogers. That's hysterical and disgusting, all at the same time.
