Ira's Nose

Tonight, while dropping Ira off, his dad told me that the little guy had been pretty fragile, crying a lot and complaining that his nose hurt and that there was something in it. Something pink. His dad asked how it got there, and Ira said it "grew little legs and crawled up and got stuck." Dad assumed at that point that it was just stuffed and Ira was making up a story to go along with it, but also told me about it just in case he was wrong and there really was something up there. Fast forward an hour or so... Ira suddenly hands me a little pink bead-like thing (I'm not really sure what it is) and told me it came out of his nose. No, it didn't have legs. When asked why it was in there, he said "I put it in to see what would happen.... I'm NEVER going to do that again... it hurts!" We talked about it a little more, especially about not putting anything in any other parts, but I think he learned his lesson.

In other news, the kids had a bath together tonight for the first time. Much cuteness. Nonny really is a chubby little thing. This was her first bath not in the baby tub. She loved it. She's a very enthusiastic splasher, and everyone was wet by the end.

Can't argue with his logic.

Poor Ira at least he has common sense not to do something like that again.

Ok, nothing out of the ordinary. If you like you can tell him I did the same thing when I was his age. Except mine was a lead sinker from tackle box.....boy - so many unanswered questions all answered in one fell swoop.

"It grew little legs..."! Uh-huh. :-} Glad the story has a relatively harmless ending! (And now he has his first Words of Wisdom from the Voice of Experience story...)

I'm glad he managed to get the thing out. (Aside: Which is better than the son of some of our other friends did; he needed to go to the ER for it to be extracted.) And even gladder that he realizes never to do it again.

Slight of hand

I said it last night and I'll say it again, I will go over the fact that I do not actually have magical powers and that the penny I pull out of his nose never actually leaves my hand.

Lesson from the Tempest, Do not teach you children that you have magical powers, unless you do.

I never felt the need to stick things up my nose as a child. That phase didn't set in until college.

I have a vivid memory of sticking american cheese up my nose at that age, which I'm sure hurt less than the bead. Problem is I have no memory of it coming out again and was convinced when I was 4 or so that it was still there, very weird nightmares from that.

OT: Friday

Hi Bess -- my email is screwed up. Friday playdate sounds good. Will try to send real email when John gets home and can fix it.
