:LOL<br><br>
Today while eating lunch Kai says to me "Mommy look, pea in my nose" He lifted up and there it was . I felt like i was in a movie trying to talk someone out of doing something horrific. SO slowly I said "Kai, Dont breathe " LOL Ok that was stupid especially to say to a toddler that loves to do opposites. After that i quickly said "KAI BLOOOOOOW" Good thing the kid can shoot some air outta his lil nostril cause that pea came out so fast with so much force :LOL so as hes eating the rest of his lunch he says "Hmm Mommy peas in your nose HAHA" ARGH! And hes 2yrs <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/luxlove.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="throb"> boy i love him hes to funny!<br><br>
A friend told me today a couple yrs back she had a bad earache and when Dr examined her they found a craft bead in her ear and said it must have been there since she was a toddler ! YIKES :LOL<br><br>

Easter morning when my DS1 was 5 he was eating some M & M's from his Easter basket and was watching cartoons. He was SO INVOLVED in the cartoon he wasn't paying attention to what he was doing and, as his nose was a little bit runny, took a BIG SNIFF! And UP went the M & M he was just holding near his mouth!! Our DD, who was 3 at the time, came running and told me that he had an M & M up his nose! I sat him down in the bathroom, and got the flashlight out and took a look, and sure enough, lodged about 1/2 inch up was the GREEN M & M (I thought the color was appropriate!LOL)! So, what do I do? Hmmmmmm, I better call the nurse hotline...and the first question they asked me was: Is it plain or peanut? I just about died laughing, and my DS got really mad at me! And as I'm talking with the nurse about how to try to get it out my DS says, "I think I swallowed it!" And he had.<br><br>
SO FUNNY!

DS (4 years old) stuck a hotwheel wheel up his nose last summer <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"> (he was 3 at the time). I tried to get him to blow it out...I tried holding the other nostril closed and blowing in his mouth (a trick I learned working in an emergency room). Nothing worked. I took him to the pediatrician but they were unable to remove it, so we were sent to an ENT (Ear/Nose/Throat) doctor. He used all of his tricks but was unable to get it out...that wheel was WAY in there. So, we had to have him put to sleep with anesthesia so they could go up thru his mouth and nasal cavity to push it out from behind!! The entire procedure took all of 5 minutes, but I hope to never have to repeat it. Luckily, DS learned a lesson...

A couple of nights ago I took my daughter (20 months) to the ER so they could remove the RAISIN she'd stuck up her nose!<br><br>
This was after an hour's worth of effort here at home, including the bulb syringe, sucking through a straw, just plain sucking on her nose, putting her in the shower & dumping water on her head in hopes she's sneeze, wiping some pepper under her nose to induce sneeze (looked like she was wearing a little Hitler moustache), and reaching in with tweezers. Poor child probably thought we'd lost our minds!<br><br>
The ER doc had to use a little catheter device, threading it behind the raisin and then inflating the balloon and pulling the raisin out. Sucker had swollen up pretty big! Took 3 paramedics to hold her down while she screamed - boy, was she pissed off! But two minutes later she was fine, giggling b/c they'd given her some stickers and I stuck them on her toes.<br><br>
Ah, kids!

We had a similar experience with a peanut up the nose. I was watching that dd took them one at a time and lifted them carefully towards her mouth, but was too slow to stop her putting one up her nose instead. :LOL<br><br>
It took hours at the doctors then finally waiting for an ENT specialist to get it out. It took him all of ten seconds once we got in to see him, but cost us several hundred dollars for his time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">

:LOL Glad all turned out okay. They have such a sense of humor, dont they?<br><br>
We have been pretty lucky. Jeremy doesnt even usually put non-food items in is mouth. Well, except catfood once or twice. :LOL But he is starting to put weird stuff in his mouth, so...i am now on constant watch!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>

OMG, I'm cringing for you all - as I'm sure this is something that dd will experiment with soon enough.<br><br>
my middle brother was the *expert* at this. he used to be able to stick ball-bearings up his nose, and once a halfpenny coin. I'll be reminding him of this at his wedding next month :LOL

Hey, it's not all bad.<br><br>
At least with these non-life-threatening ER visits a Mommy can get out of the house & ogle the paramedics hanging around the hospital. Hubba, hubba hubba!
