Payback Time

You know when your younger, your parents curse you at least once that you will have a kid just like you. When I was little, I had an affinity for sticking things up my nose. (What little kid doesn't?) I can remember at least one time as a kid that my parents actually had to bring me to the ER because they couldn't get whatever I stuck up my nose out. I think that was the last time I did that. So today was my payback. I was in the front room doing something when I heard Kaylee tell my dad, "Grandpa I have a bead in my nose." What??? I go into the playroom to check it out and the poor kid is traumatized. She keeps wiping her nose trying to get it out and is very close to tears. My mom and I try to have her sneeze but instead of sneezing she is breathing in. We get the pepper but that is not working. And I start having visions of the ER and flashbacks to mine own object stuck in the nose experience. My mom finds some tweezers and I hold Kaylee down while my mom extracts. Luckily she got it out. And mind you this was not a small bead. After we got the bead out, we asked Kaylee if she was going to do that again and she said no. Somethings you just have to learn the hard way!!
