Gentlemen Start Your Engines Noses

OK...I know....only I would follow up a beautiful tribute to our Veterans with a tribute to SNOT! Well I guess it's not really a tribute per se...it's more a complaint session.

From Daddy on down we are all a bunch of sniffling, sneezing, nose blowing, snot rockets! I am telling you guys we are swimming in it over here (and thank God I don't mean literally..although it does get sneezed into a bathtub from time to time...I know, too much info.) We just can't seem to kick the colds this fall....I think there are just so many of us that we keep passing it around...I actually blame it on my husband....he's in and out of pediatricians offices all day and brings that junk home to us.... Gotta love cold and flu season! We need a hard freeze here in Oklahoma and fast....

By the way, so sorry about the picture.......this was actually the *cute* Shot of the Snot (what a great title for this picture--glad I thought of it!).....He was eating lunch at the time I snapped this photographic gem; you should see some of the others! I spared you of the one where the flow of snot is actually touching the food in his smiling mouth....YUMM-O!
I also decided to spare you from snot pictures of the rest of us.....because pictures of snot aren't nearly as cute when they aren't on a baby! Just trying to keep ya'll's best interest in mind..what can I say...I'm very thoughtful.. :)

Oh my!!!I remember getting everything the kids got too! One time we had three of us hanging our heads over the same toilet at the same time! ( great mental image huh?)

Keep up the rest and fluids and hopefully it will freeze soon!

You could have done a Wordless Wednesday post, and just titled it "Shot of the Snot". It would have been a big hit! :o)

Man, that is going on at our house too. I am thinking of starting a meme for snotty kids!!! LOL. Even if he is not at 100% he is still adorable.

Hey let me tell you....the snots an everyday thing around here. As soon as I think it's over and the last kid has gotten it we start all over again!!!!

Where do you live in Ok? My dad is from there and my grandmother and aunt still live there. My grandmother is in Anadarko and my aunt in Yukon...any of those ring a bell?

I can handle that...it is the hugging of the toilet that I cannot deal with. But thank the good Lord, that we have avoided it all...so far. May it freeze by you soon:)

Kimber said...

That is actually quite funny. At least he feels well enough to smile

Baseballs and Tutu's said...

Tag...you're it! Come check it out :)

My dad was born and raised in Binger...don't know where that is in location to you. We always fly into Okc when we do visit...not so much anymore though.

Thanks for all your comments! For some reason, I assumed "Liz" from my comments was one of my friends and it turns out it was you, a new blog friend! So, I've only read this one post, but I can tell I'm going to enjoy your blog. I will have to take some time to catch up. Cute kiddo's too!

At least he's not feeling too bad with that big smile! He's cute, snot or not!! The snot is always flowing at our house too...it's the worst when your yelling "Let me wipe your nose" and right before you get to it..there it goes on their shirt or mama's (even worse!!) I bet you know what I'm talking about!
