Kids Sticking Things Up Their Noses

Lil Community: Secret Life of the Preschooler

Motherhood can be a mind-boggler! Tiffany Carboni shared her family's latest adventure in The Mommy Club.

Once upon a time, there was a beautiful little girl who liked to stick things up her nose. From the tender age of one, she attempted to find new homes for whatever candy, marbles, rocks, erasers (attached to pencils or not), surprisingly large pasta, Christmas lights, keys, even the TV remote control inside her sinus cavities. The family had to change pediatricians a number of times to keep their daughter’s problem a secret.

Her mother and father were quite concerned for the obvious reasons, not least of which was Child Protective Services knocking on their door. Their concerns were further compounded when, during a routine doctor appointment, the doctor found a plastic bead shoved snugly inside the little girl’s right nostril. It had likely been there for two days.


Mother was shocked; but not the little girl who was instead upset because this discovery meant that the bead had to come out.

Mother and daughter were scolded by the doctor. As a result the little girl was not allowed near anything smaller than a refrigerator. This was difficult of course because life, especially with a sibling who is four years older, is full of tempting objects when you are a chronic orifice shover-inner. Furthermore, there aren’t a lot of support groups out there when that urge to insert comes on.
