You can pick your nose, but don't shove stuff up it!
Yup. We got to go have a bead removed from Katherine's nostril last night. What a way to top off the day. About 8:30 I noticed that she had been walking around blowing her nose for quite a while. I asked her if she needed help. She said, "It stuck." I thought she meant the boogers were stuck. After helping her blow her nose, she says, "No mom, it got stuck in there." I asked her what got stuck to which she replied, "I don't know." We got out the flashlight and sure enough there was something stuck up her nose. It was too far up for me to reasonably pull it out, so we got to go to the InstaCare. Fun stuff! It took the doctor, a nurse and me holding her down, and really long tweezers, to pull it out. And sure enough, out comes a white bead. I'm hopeful that she's learned her lesson and won't be sticking anything else up her nose anytime soon!
