Recently, a mom found a dandelion growing out of her toddler's ear. And let's get real: That's crazy. But since the dawn of time, parents have been finding weird crap stuck inside their small children's ears, because, well, kids are idiots. Just kidding.
I conducted a little poll of my own to find out the strange objects moms and dads have pulled from their children's ears, and while the dandelion growth is hard to top, let's just say this: A live, fluttering moth is a close second.
Here are 9 crazy things parents have found in their children's ears.

Two moms found crayons in their sons' ears. One melted, another ... not so melted. As she tells it:
"My son stuck a crayon in his ear when he was 6 and the tip broke off and got lodged in his ear canal. He was at school when it happened and said he was doing a magic trick to have the crayon go in one ear and out the other. He ended up having to go to the hospital to have it removed under sedation!"
