Ewwwww, New Skills

Micah has learned (yet another) new skill. He can blow his nose.

Kind of.

Since he is currently sporting a cold, he has a lot of material to practice with. His newfound skill involves blowing. (Of course.) But he lacks a tissue. Or anything, really. He just blows. And let me tell you, he is incredibly proud of himself for learning this awesome life skill. If he produces something on a particularly hard blow, his grin just stretches from sea to shining sea. As I run for a kleenex, his river of snot slides down his upper lip like a yellow mudslide. (Yeh, I KNOW it's gross. It's even more gross to actually see it happen.) By the time I get back to him, armed with a tissue, he is literally giggling with pride.

I won't tell you about the time both nostrils produced a hefty bounty, and in the fifteen seconds it took for me to get a tissue his tongue decided to take a lick. I just wanted to wretch.

Boys are really, really gross. And they're so proud of it.

I have no pictures. YOU'RE WELCOME.

I really wouldn't worry until he discovers he can blow bubbles with it. Or until he figures out how to block one side when he blows... and it all ends up all over your wall. Or the TV screen.

Nice! Max learned to blow his nose in a Kleenex... but here lately he's pretty sure the Kleenex is optional! So no need for a picture...I can ask Max to blow his nose and see the same thing. gross, I know.

Oh I always get a few Kleenex- one just won't cut it.
