Was uploading a few photos in the office when I heard TubaDad yell "M, could you come in here -- we've got a Nerd in the nose!" Um, sure? Ran into the kitchen and saw some Halloween candies sitting on the table, Ree crying frantically, and Ro jumping up and down gleefully saying "She put a Nowd in her nose, a Nowd!!"
You might think I panicked, but you know what? I had read about this a whole bunch of times on friends' blogs, and knew just what to do. I asked her which side the Nerd was on, plugged the other side, and told her to blow HARD through her nose. That little candy shot out of there like a tiny, slimy, orange rocket and bounced a few times on the ground before coming to a stop in the middle of the carpet. Yessss!
And do you know what I thought while I was hugging poor Ree and consoling her afterwards? I thought "Ha HA, see, you can learn anything on blogs!!!"
