It's hard not to laugh

Ethan always keeps me on my toes. Almost daily there are times I have to squelch a smile about something he says or does. The icky sick bug has hit at our house and Ethan has a very stuffy nose. Our conversation at bedtime Monday night went a little like this:

E: “So, Sinus’ are where my boogers life?”

Me: “yes”

E: “How medicine get up there?”

Me: “It goes down to your tummy then travels up to your sinus’ to help get rid of the boogers.”

E: “Its like a broom and sweep the boogers out?”

Me: “Uh . . . yeah”

E: “Drink water help get boogers out too?”

Me: “Yes, drinking a lot of water helps you get better and get the boogers out”

E: “Drink water flood the boogers out?”

Me: “Getting lots of sleep helps a whole lot, so let’s get you tucked in so you can sleep and feel better tomorrow.”

Sometimes you just have to change the subject a little so you don’t laugh out loud.

I’m am very thankful for two munchkins who keep me laughing as we work our way through life.
