    Get someone's nose

    Aw, he has the same look
    my little nephew gets when he can't figure out
    how I got his nose.

    What does this expression mean? Oddly enough I couldn't find it.

    Not a teacher only a native.

    The speaker is refering to a common trick played by adults on young children, called 'I've got your nose!' or words along those lines.

    I've got your nose - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    YouTube - ‪Daddy! I want my nose back!‬‏

    The child is often puzzled as they actually think the adult has removed their nose.
