Thea: "OK, hold on!" Thea runs by me announcing what her plan is.
Zoe: "I can't get it out!"
Thea: "Just blow really hard!"
Zoe: "Fea help!"
At this point I was already on my way to help Zoe with her obstinate obstruction.
I put the handkerchief in front of her nose and say "blow!" Zoe says "I can't, it won't come out!"
I take a moment to look in her nose to see exactly what the problem is and I'm faced with a black object that looks nothing like the stuff we normally blow out. I squeeze from the top of her nose and move forward and out pops part of a crayon, that had been shoved all the way up into her nose!
Zoe: Nonchalantly says, "Fanks mommy"
Me: "Fanks mommy!?!?" (Thea, on the other hand is horrified that we are: #1. doing a nose extraction and #2. that it's not what normally comes out. I kid you not she was backed away at least 3 feet so as not to get slimed in case it truly was as big as it seemed.)
Me: "Zoe, honey, please do not put things in your nose ever again!!!"
Zoe: "Sure mommy."
Yes, this one keeps me praying.
