I have pulled an assortment of things out of his nose, including (but not limited to):
- pencil erasers
- a piece of a rubber shoe
- foam rubber coach cushioning
- a dried pinto bean
- a second pinto bean that was behind the first bean
- a raisin that had the chance to sit overnight and was nearly a grape by the time I pulled it out the next day
- bits of apple
- dirt clods
- dried grass pulp from the underside of the lawn mower
- pocket lint
Of note is the fact that his older sister did the same thing when she was his age. She stuck with soft fluffy things like quilt batting or pillow stuffing. I remember the first time we gave her cotton candy. I handed her a piece and then turned back to the bag to give some to Michael. It struck me too late that cotton candy bears a strong resemblance to quilt batting. It was already a melted, sticky mess oozing out of her nose by the time I turned back to take it from her.
My kids are weird.
Occasionally Jack will put something in his ear, again only the right side, but he usually limits his partiality to putting things in his nose. Once he stuck some mandarin oranges in his ear and I was able to get a nice picture of that.
Yup. Strange, weird, bizarre kids.
