If you have read this blog over the past few days, you should be well aware that my son has been dealing with a cold. He has been sneezing quite a bit as a result, and of course, he has a runny nose. We try to limit the damage as much as possible by wiping his nose often, but like all children I have ever met, my son hates having his face wiped. Thus, my son's nose looks a little like a leaky faucet these days.
This morning, as my son was playing quietly with some toys, I heard him sneeze. As has been the case lately, I got up to get a tissue to wipe his face. However, as I turned to wipe it, I looked at my son, and he had about six bubbles hanging around his nose. Gross! (and that's coming from a man!) My son's face looked like a bubbling cauldron.
Of course, I cleaned my son up, and the remainder of the day was rather uneventful. Still, twelve hours later, the image of his bubbling nose is haunting me. I really do hope I can someday forget that image. So the lesson for today is: Soap bubbles are cool, nose bubbles are not.
