Almost Another Emergency

Tonight, Lila got a popcorn kernel stuck up her nose! As soon as she did it, she at least told me so I was able to start working on it as soon as possible. Micah was out helping someone move so I tried all of the suggestions; pepper, "mother's kiss", baster, but they weren't really working. Finally, I called Micah and he came home to help. I kept up with the things I had been doing to at least be doing something. The "mother's kiss" seemed to at least help move it closer. We were really hoping we wouldn't have to go to the ER again (everything seems to happen to us on Friday nights), but we thought we just might have to. We really didn't want to use tweezers because of how far back it was, but when it got moved a little bit further forward, Micah, with his steady hand, was able to slowly and carefully move it forward bit by bit with the tweezers while I held a flashlight for him to see. Eventually he got it all the way out. Needless to say, Lila was TERRIFIED and I don't think she'll put a kernel up her nose again any time soon. Hopefully it will deter her from any behavior of that kind again.

Oh children… they sure do keep my heart pumping! 


  1. Hahaha oh my gosh! I'm sure she was so happy to have you getting it out! These are the stories you will laugh about when they are teenagers!

  2. Yes Ella once put a pebble up her nose and of course off we went to Emergency as I couldn't see it up her nose but could see the big bump on the outside but once we got there and with all her crying it had come back down enough for me to pinch the top of her nose and pop it right out !!! Needless to say she wont ever put anything up her nose again !!!
