This boy is TROUBLE........

Just some random up close shots I took of the kids, I thought I would share, along with a fun little story of my mastermind child. Talmadge is well just say a pain in the A*#!!!!!!! For about the last month he has been putting things up his nose. Well on Thursday afternoon he managed to do it again, so just like before he gets in trouble.......then proceed with the steps to try and retrieve the object, this is never a pretty sight. First we try blowing it out........doesn't work, sneezing it out.....doesn't work, showering to get his nose really snotty and runny so it would loosen up, doesn't come out. When dad gets home it's tweezer time, he loves this one. I restrain him while Scott uses long skinny tweezers.....after some serious screaming, yelling, crying, and blood.........still doesn't come out.


He has had it by the end of the day so I let him sleep on it to see what happens, keep in mind all the while he is shoving his finger up his nose and it just get further and further with him saying "out nose mom". If he would just listen I just don't get it. Friday called the doctor has an appt. at 11, Scott takes him, I had to take Lucy to school even if I didn't I'm not so sure I wanted to go to the appt. knowing what was to transpire.
Midway through I get a call from my sister who happened to be at the doctors with her son Drake who was getting a cast on his broken foot, she was in the room next to them. She said it was horrible, they wrapped him in a blanket, and our Doctor came in looking like an alien with her light on her head and other contraptions in hand to get the object out. My sister had to leave the room, and go to the waiting room she couldn't listen to him crying, I could hear him through the phone, while she was telling me all this, it was horrible. I get a call from Scott a while later, still no luck..........After my doctor was done, she told Scott "he looks like a prize fighter", his face was covered in blood, and he was coughing it up from swallowing it and it was splattered all over his cloths and running out his nostril........... We then have a doctor appt. at 4 pm, with the specialist, go figure a small bead is going to cost us a crapload of money, and no I did not attend that appt. either, after some numbing jell, and a vaccuum suction we have our object, a bead from a broken braclet of the girls, this by no means was small, it actually consisted of 3 stuck together, and was very far up there. It took 3 people to restrain him, and the doctor they were surprised at how strong he was, I'm thinking well when was the last time you wrestled with at 2 year old........
Do you think he learned his lesson after this whole ordeal and terrible day NO..........later that night 2 more objects were up his nose, luckily I caught them soon enough before they were lodged...........and I vacuum a million times a day, I dont' know where he finds these things, he makes me insane, but he is so stinking cute, I love it. It must be a boy thing the girls never would have done this.
This is his "say cheese face", lovely with the beef jerky all over his teeth isn't it.
I have lots of fun stories about him similar to this, I'm sure they will just continue through the years.............

Oh, Amber! I WISH it was just a boy thing, because if that were the case, I wouldn't have to be dealing with similar crap from my little girl!!! Granted, she tends to keep her nose clear of foreign objects. Her mouth, however is a different story. She somehow manages to find a plethera of non-edible objects to suck on and swallow. I can't even tell you the worst one, because I feel like throwing up every time I think about it :P (<-- that's me throwing up).

On a much better, less gag-inducing note, I love your close-ups of the kids. They're so stinkin cute :)

It sounds like you need to put a mask on him that he can't remove!! Muzzle?? How scary! Believe it or not, Scott never did that. Actually, NONE of the kids did. They also never put anything down the toilet. (At least not that I knew about!) You sure do have your challenge, don't you? Let's hope the next boy is not so adventuresome!

I love the pictures, they are so darn cute!!! I'm thinking maybe we can come up the end of April? After tax season is over? Our Exchange schedule gets crazy after that....

I miss you all,

Mom
