Snot here and there

This is the second time in about a week I have heard the following from the youngest boy – “A-A-A-CCHHOOO, sorry mommy I got some of it (snot that is) on your phone”. Casey J is obsessed with a simple little jigsaw puzzle game that I put on my iPhone to help entertain him at all the various times he gets bored. Which is often. It’s allergy/cold season in our house and if they have even a tinsy amount of snot in their noses they will be sure to sneeze near me, on me, or on something that belongs to me and shoot that lovely stuff right out of their noses. I must be insane not to have tissues everywhere (must create secret pouch to carry tissues in). The little ones we have in the van are almost pointless, especially the way the boys use them. They wipe up (sending some fluids into their hair I’m sure) then semi-wad it up and hand it to me. Like I want to grab that nasty tissue from them…. Ugh. Will the grossness ever end? Every winter I swear I should have invested in Kleenex stocks, but at least the boys are happy because the more tissues we use the more Box Tops they get for their school…. That puts it all in perspective. I’m still suffering from a nasty cold so that’s all for me tonight. Off to dream of clean bathrooms, and boys with good table manners – hey I said it was a dream. 🙂
