Snot

baby.pngYou really reexamine the things that are important to you when you’re wrist deep into sucking the snot out of your child’s nose. And when you are able to change into unstained clothes and get out of the house for awhile, the air is sweeter and the coffee tastes better and the world doesn’t seem like such a hateful place anymore.

Then, when you come back again, you’re able to kiss your child and pat her head and then hold her down to suck more snot out of her nose with a squeeze bulb. And her screams of fury don’t sound so horrible.
