T has been feeling a little under the weather for the last couple of days.
Runny nose. The right side of his neck (throat) hurts when he swallows. A headache. Pain in the sinus area.
Like all moms I have been harassing him non-stop to blow his nose. He refuses because ‘Mom it never helps!’ It does if you do it more than once.
Yesterday morning there were tears. T was feeling the stuffy nose, the sore throat, he did not want to go for his eye appointment.
I was sitting on the couch having my coffee when he comes out into the living room and plops down on the couch next to me. He looks over at me and says:
‘Mom I can smell now! My nose is okay.’
‘Wow what happened? Did you blow it?’
He looks at me all squinty eyed not impressed with me in the least.
‘Are you being sarcastic mom?’
‘You know you really are not funny.’ I was standing in front of him laughing away.
‘Maybe not to you but all the other moms out there are going to find this hilarious. Just blow your nose when I tell you to and this will not be a problem.’
Needless to say as I chortled away T sat with his arms crossed staring at me with that look. Which only made me laugh more.
