Yesterday I put Nathan in timeout for chasing the cats. He’s getting over a mild cold, so his nose is a little icky. So while he was in time out, I heard the sound of him blowing his nose (with no tissue, mind you). Then? Then I hear the telltale sound splat! as a snot ball hit the floor. Then…. silence. Nathan got really quiet, and I then heard odd little wet, slimy noises.
He was playing with the snot he blew on the floor.
I can’t wait until I can finally get through to him that YOU DON’T PLAY WITH YOUR BOOGERS. Oh wait, I still have years to go, don’t I?
