Grateful For... A Special 'Kiss'

This week, Master Magoo decided that a week of no medical attention whatsoever just wouldn't do.
Without a single appointment planned for the first time in a while, he took matters into his own hands... or nose.

In a bid to entertain a beautiful young girl, Magoo put a piece of popcorn up his nose.

I have a feeling this won't be the last time he opts to do something pretty dumb to impress the ladies.

That kernel was well and truly lodged though, so off to a nearby medical centre we did go.

After an hour of the doctor trying in vain to extract that salty goodness with suction tools and various instruments, then threatening anaesthetic intervention - Mummy stepped up to the plate.

Showing his gratitude the next day.
What self-respecting blogger doesn't
photograph the actual kernel extraction??
If you happen to find yourself in a similar position - which Magoo now assures me I won't - I can vouch for the following technique :
  • Block the unaffected nostril with one hand.
  • Place your mouth over your child's mouth - CPR style.
  • Blow, blow and bloooow again.
  • Catch that sucker as it flies out.

Master Magoo later told his Daddy that the whole thing was "easy, peasy, Japanesey".
Mummy just had to do "special kissing".

I'm grateful that we avoided that dreaded children's hospital and any more drama than necessary.

What are you grateful for this week / day / moment?

What is it with kids and noses? I once stuck a beanbag ball up my nostril and it got stuck. Trip to the hospital for me. I set a trend as my sister then did it with a piece of lego and my cousin with a pebble. Eeek! Good thinking by you though and glad Magoo wasn't too stressed by it all! xx

I wish you had that on video!! Glad it all turned out ok :)

Anna @ green tea n toast said...

Oh this had me laughing out loud! How funny. I would have loved to have seen that doctors face! X

Seana said...

Well done that practical Mum, that was such a funny post. Son1 once put a little stone up his nose and it cost $300 in total to get it out - horrors!!!

Lee said...

OMG! DId you think of that yourself or did the doctor think of it?? My brother stuck a cowboys head up his nose as a youngster which had to be medically removed. We still jibe him about it now (he's 39). xx

Mama of 2 boys said...

Haha what a scallywag! This did make me laugh HARD Shar. Angus stuck a sultana up his nose when he was about two. That was quite the ordeal and we were *this* close to a trip up to the hospital, when it finally 'dis-lodged'. Ewww, kids! Gorgeous pic of the Magoo though xoxo

Elisa {with grace and eve} said...

Oh my goodness I am actually laughing out loud! Hilarious! Glad all is now well! x

Mandy Ferry said...

Posie Patchwork said...

Love it, the kiss of life, popcorn style!! Oh Shar my darling, whatever will you get up to with twice as many Magooes in your world??!! Love Posie

See, my kid swallows coins and Christmas bells, your kid sticks things up his nose. See, we are mirror twins!

Kate Sins said...

Oh dear, what a little lad! I'm so scared of those sorts of events...with two boys I'm sure they're going to happen!

Glad all's okay and mummy's special kiss saved the day!
