After dinner, Jet was playing with a B that he'd glued beans to during pre-school. He picked off a bean and then, right in front of John and I, he stuck it in his ear.

I grabbed him, turned him sideways and tried to shake it out. John came over, pulled on Jet's ear and got the bean out.

"You scared the heck out of me!!" I said as Jet cried, rightfully scared and angry about the whole thing. John and I discussed with him the dangers of putting things in ears and noses and he talked with us about it and the consequences, and I was glad that he decided it was a bad idea to put things into ears and noses, especially things that might stay stuck there.

Later, we were going to go downstairs to play a Crash game, and Jet piped up, "Mom! Mom! If we're careful with the game then heck won't scare out of you..."
