My 3 yo who has a nut allergy was eating "safe" popcorn,well,he started crying,face red,water eyes...so I grabbed the bag,and sure enough it was safe,he was screaming "it's in there",well,you guessed it,he put a kernal up his nose,the Ped almost couldn't get it because it was so far up,so she gave it one more shot before going to the ER,and there it was. Aggghhh,if it weren't for my highlights I would be grey!! tongue

I was lucky with my 2 kids, they didn't shove anything up their nose like most do, but when my daughter was a baby, we had those fuzzy dice with the round black felt dots on them and they were in her room, well sure enough I noticed one day not a single felt dot was anywhere to be found on the dice or anywhere eles for that matter, so we're pretty sure to this day she simply ate them...never noticed anything in her poops the following days or anything but I'm sure she ate them, maybe they're still lining her colon LOL!

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

I will never under stand why kids do those things. My neighbors kids are always putting mud in their mouths even though they have no idea where the dog pees. They just don't get it.

Oh, you gotta love those kids and their "foreign body" insertions. I have seen quite a few of those go through surgery for removal. Ears, noses, and yes other areas with, how do i put it delicately, holes. Seen leggos, quarters, dimes, cigar holders, beads, bugs, jellybeans...
Watch out for when they remove the thing, some kid will just turn around and put it right back in!
Glad it is ok and you WILL laugh(one day :))

Ten kernels of cooked corn found their way up my eldest daughter's nose. Took 3 trips to the doctor to get them out. she was a handful and still is, just in just a different way at 30. Mind you a very bright, articulate, well-educated young woman that makes me proud ~~ but high maintenance!

Thank God my girls never put anything up anywhere, but they sure did stick alot of stuff down the toilet to see what would happen. I remember their Dad having to completely take up the toilet to get out a Weeble that was stuck in there. Weebles wobble but they don't flush down. Kids will be kids won't they??? LOL
