While I was cooking dinner with Marlee tonight, Noah (who was watching a movie) walked into the kitchen whimpering.
"Mom, ouch.", he said and pointing to his nose. I looked over and saw his eyes watering, and his right nostril red and HUGE. I quickly glanced over to the table where he had a cup of roasted peanuts, but it was no longer there.
"Noah, is there a peanut in your nose?" I asked, trying to remain calm.
"Yes Mommy", he answered with the saddest eyes. I reached down, and felt his nose. Sure enough, there was a hard round peanut stuck up his nose. Luckily I pushed it back down his nostril to the point where I could reach it and pull it out. It was a funny moment once the peanut came out and he left the room, but now I worry that he's going to do it again, or that Van will.
Marlee never did anything like this. Why are boys so weird? How does a 2 1/2 year old think to jam a peanut up his nose? I'll never understand. Being a Mom is so fun!?
