How's this for gross?
Last night after picking Bill up from work, he asked if I wanted to go out for dinner. He suggested we go out for breakfast since I've been craving pancakes for God knows how long. I was all for it! So we drove to an IHOP by the house.
After we were seated at our table, Logan was coloring & making a mess as usual. I don't know how I saw this, but somehow I noticed something salmon-colored in his left nostril. I tilted his head up & pulled his nose back, looking in to his nasal cavity. And what do you know - there's something in there. Again.
I thought he was out of this stage, but I guess not. As we were sitting at the table in the restaurant, I tried digging it out with a straw. I know from previous experience that you're not supposed to dig anything out, but I could see it & it was late on a Friday night. I had a lot of stuff going on the next morning & going to the Doctor to scoop out whatever it is was not on my to-do list. After figuring out the straw wasn't going to work, I looked around for something else. Bill suggested a toothpick. It was a great idea.
So here I am, holding Logan's head very still as I'm trying to dig into his nose with a toothpick. You can't disagree that this has to be the most disgusting thing anyone has seen while sitting down to eat dinner. The good news was the toothpick worked like a charm & I was able to poke the ERASER HEAD in his nose & pull it right out. Yes, you read that right. An eraser head. Apparently 3 days ago when he was in the computer room ripping the eraser tips off of the pencils I just bought, he stuck one up his nose & we never knew.
I'm about to start taping this boy's nose shut.
***On a side note: Despite giving up naps, we're still having sleep issues here. The first morning he woke up at 7AM. Then this morning he woke up at 5AM! Earlier than before! And he also passed out on the couch after dinner at 7PM, before his bath & brushing his teeth. This sucks.***
