We Don't Put Things In Our Nose!

Gross. Weird. Downright freaky.
This morning Critter woke up early at 6:47 crying. I mean the really upset kind: the hiccupy-multiple-intake-of-breath, hyperventilating king of crying. All of a sudden. Something must be REALLY wrong. A little background. We have been blessed with two sons who are GREAT sleepers...each of them slept a solid 9 hours at night starting at 10 weeks, and have never looked back (barring the occasional fever/congestion/illness stirrings). I mean these kids LOVE their rest, and will TELL you when they are ready for bedtime or a nap. Usually I leave them in their room until 7:30 (no matter what time they wake), but since C. was SOOOO upset, I went to get him. He couldn't tell me what was wrong other than that he needed a tissue. He calmed down after drinking some milk, and kisses and cuddles. So the morning commenced- coffee, getting breakfast ready, getting the paper, etc. We sat down to breakfast, began eating, and C. asks for a tissue again. I look at him and notice he's dripping a bit, so I get him one and help him blow his nose. I take the tissue away, and it feels like there's something hard in it (I had recently read MrsDof's account of her clot, and curiosity got the better of me)......so I looked.

And there nestled in the tissue (among other..um....stuff) was.....a button! Not a big one, but about 1/2 inch in diameter. The funny thing is, I have NO IDEA where it came from. I mean, before it got into his nose. He doesn't even have any clothes that have that kind of button, much less was he wearing them recently. Weird. He did seem in a much better mood after it was free.
For your viewing pleasure.....cleaned up, of course.


...this is the way WE blow our nose......
