Tonight I got some great laughs. First, I went to tuck the kids in and found them both on my daughter's bed. She was holding a book, reading, and her older brother was in the 'audience' with Puppy and various Webkinz. He said, "She won't let me read her book so she is reading it to me..." I sat and listened for a while, and then decided I should capture this moment!
Then, as I really was tucking them in, my daughter, 7, said, "I can't breathe through my nose!" So I talked her into trying the neti pot. I've been using it for a few weeks and it works WONDERS! It took a lot of prep, but she finally settled in to taking on the task. Then I heard her whisper to herself, "I can't believe I have to do all the water...I'm just a kid..." I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants. It's funny how they are "just kids" when it comes to their suffering, but any other time, they want to be so grown up! Here is my brave little girl giving the neti pot a go. If you need this picture to convince your little one to try it, have at it!
