Popcorn

Today I made a trip to the doctor's office with all three kids.  They each had an appointment for checkups.  Even though it wasn't to bad, I do not want to go to another appointment with all three kids again.  Jude and Elise were ok, but Avery kept on getting into the cabinet, trash, and drawers.  She actually hit her head on one drawer and now has a scratch under her left eye.  Avery received one shot, the other kids did not.  During Elise's checkup, at the point the doctor checks up her nose, he says that it looks like there some kind of object in her nose.  I took a look and yep, there was an object up her nose.  The doctor said it looked like it might be a bean.  He wanted her to blow her nose to try and eject the object, but Elise wouldn't do it.  So, the doctor said I would need to take her to the hospital to have it sucked out since they didn't have the right equipment in the office for such a procedure.   I'm thinking "Oh, great.  Another trip to the hospital, just what we need right now."  Well, we get home and I had Elise blow her nose about four times to get this object out of her nose.  It finally came out and it was a popcorn kernel.  We had popcorn last week.  The kernel was split and looked like it had germinated.  How crazy is that, Elise was trying to grow corn in her nose.  Earlier at the doctor's office I asked if she put a bean in her nose, she said "no."  So this time I asked if she put popcorn in her nose, she said "yes."  She didn't have an explanation for it.  What gives?

I can't believe it was sprouting!

Lydia was about the same age when she put the bead up her nose. We ended up in the ER for that one...

Mom always told me not to eat the watermelon seeds because I might grow a watermelon in my stomach, she never warned me about popcorn kernels sprouting in my nose.
