Green M&Ms

I will never look at green M&Ms the same...
why don't I start at the beginning?
Remember this?
Well our due dates have come & gone
& as a result we both have precious little babes. 
Kit & Kendall
As you can tell they love each other very much.
I took these pictures back in January.
I'll never forget that day.
I had Angie & Kendall over for lunch.  After lunch I was taking pictures of the babes & Rocco started crying.
"It hurts!  My nose."
It took me much longer than it should have, to figure out he had shoved an M&M up his nose.
I couldn't see it up there but I knew it was there
because a little bit of green dye ran out.
No worries, not a big deal.
Kinda funny.
I tried to get him to blow out,
he sucked in.
I tried to get him to sneeze by looking
at the sun & even tried to get him to sniff pepper.
So I called the doctor office for suggestions.
They told me to call an ambulance.
I'm not really the ambulance type but I won't lie,
that got me worried!
So, poor Angie was stuck with my kids, until
my mom could get there to relieve her, &
I tossed him in the car & drove him to the ER.
They had me put my mouth on his,
close the other side of his nose with my finger
 & blow forcefully.
No M&M came out.
Not ever.
So I learned a few lessons I thought I would pass onto you.
1) How to get things out of kids' noses.
2) When you give little boys candy, tell
them not to stick it in their nose.
3)  M&Ms melt in your nose,
not in your hand.
It'll save you this pain.
Lessons learned.
By Rocco too
He thinks it is still in there.

Tears of joy welled up when I looked at those two precious ones...my goodness poor Rocco and you..wanting you to call an ambulance..my goodness...yes, definitely a teachable moment of 122 dollars that will last you a life time and him..and he may end up teaching the wee one also what NOT to do with M and M's...((hugs))

I am sorry, but that is hyserically funny. From my end, worth every penny of your $122 smackeroos. I think mom's in Africa blow their kids' noses that way (makes me gag just thinking of it...)

Don't worry, next time Rocco's over here, I won't give him any green m&m's.

Maybe some brown ones though.

It's me said...

Poor Rocco......o my what a story !!...love from me...xxx..

Okay, for a second when I saw the photo of you holding the "due" "dec 19" signs, I kind of freaked out! Lol, you mean LAST year!

Beautiful babes! :)

Too too funny

soo... did it come out? My son did that with a corner of a small raisin box one time. According to him, 'it fell up his nose.' Anyway, we closed one side of his nose and covered his mouth with our hand...he had to either blow out or breathe in...thankfully, he blew it out. LOL Glad your little Rocco is ok!

That was some expensive advice from the hospital... And to think you passed it onto us for free. You're so nice! I will put this in the back of my mind for when, I'm sure, one day one of my boys gets this bright idea... just like their father did, back in the day. *sigh*

Never a dull moment at your place. :) I may never look at m&m's the same again. Ha! Best wishes, Tammy

OMG - BOYS! We once had the very same thing with a tiny plastic boat stuck in the nose of my son - or not ;) LOL! Cheers to a happy easter - new life, hope and LOVE!
