Both kids are all runny-nose, coughing right now, but nothing more serious than that. I wish I had a nickel for every time I heard, "SNOT!" today. Near the end of the day Art was just saying, "I need a tissue!" But I imagine I will wake to the snot call at least once tonight. It was really cute when Art was talking to Ben on the phone tonight one of the first things he said was, "I have a cold, Papa. I had to ask Mama for a tissue and a tissue and a tissue and a tissue! And just now Art called me into his room for some unknown reason, but when I got there he said, "The snot is not coming down! I wonder why I had a snotty nose." I told him, while I took him to the bathroom to pee, that when your body is sick it makes more snot so the bad germs can sail away in the snot. (Something like that, right?) While I was helping him into the dark bathroom he said, "Does pee turn into snot?" "No," I said calmly, as if it was a totally normal question. "Pee is just pee."
