Kids are Kids

I recently had a scary experiencewith Kowi. Four years ago, Kuya had the same experience.

For reasons known only to him, Kuya put a Smint candy up his nose. It got stuck in his nostil and he started to cry. And every time he tried to blow out of his nose, bubbles started to come out, which made him cry harder. Kuya was only three years old then. My mom brought him to the emergency room. I couldn't go becasue I was pregnant with Kowi that time.

I would imagine that getting a Smint up your nose would be a bit painful than a bit because it's mint. But Kowi's pink plastic bead is twice as big as Kuya's Smint.

What is it with kids and stuffing up their noses at three years old?

Kids are kids. I know they will stick more than fingers up their noses. Heaven help me get through this phase!

Re: kids sticking things in their noses-my 3 year old girl, to my chagrin, put an eraser up her nostril. grrr.

this really made me smile. my ate is almost 40 and she did the same thing at 3 years old. it was I think a small plastic flower. my mom also had to bring her to the doctor. my daughter is already 3 so I guess I have to carefully watch her now.
