Peas in the Nose
We had peas for dinner Wednesday night. Mac enjoyed a nice meal outside on the patio with his buddy, Molly.
After dinner we noticed that he had a pea in his nose. He was able to blow it out. We proceeded with bedtime & everyone slept well.
The next morning I was getting him ready for daycare & I noticed a blockage in his nose… way up there. I honestly thought he was getting a cold & had him blow his nose again & again with no success. After a few attempts, it clicked with me that it wasn’t congestion. That greenish blockage way up high was another PEA from Wednesday’s dinner! I panicked. I tried everything – tweezers, massaged the bridge of his nose, even turned him upside down, hoping gravity would help me out.
Finally after what seemed like an hour, my mom adrenaline kicked in & I remembered from my 1992 YMCA safe sitter class that when there is a nasal blockage (Wednesday night’s peas, marble, bean, etc.) you plug the good/unblocked nostril with your hand & then put your mouth over the child’s mouth & blow. The pea shot out like a rocket. And Mac laughed.
That’s my boy!
