Rite of passage, or "Hmmmm...does this fit?"

Between toddlerhood and kindergarten there are the preschool years, also known as the sticking-things-in-various-orifices years. Beth is running headlong into this: tonight she stuck a little round noodle (thanks to Google I can tell you the singular of "acini di pepe" is "acino di pepe," but that probably doesn't help anything) in her nose. Utter panic on Beth's part when she realized it was really stuck! Fortunately I got her to blow out her nose — she usually blows in — and I extracted the noodle.

I know, I know — it's my fault for serving her Italian wedding soup. But it's her favorite!

Just wonder what's next....

knock on wood but I have not had that happen yet!! Although Hannah did swallow a pretty purple rock that she got the science museum. We made her drink 4 big cups of water to help it come out!!

I used to have to pull little tissue balls out of Cait's nose with tweezers. It was her way of fighting going to bed.
