The toddler adventures continue. Iris was enjoying a fine slice of deli ham, and her nose started to run, as it had been pretty much all day. Sitting in another room, I hear Kathryn in the kitchen saying “Iris, wipe your nose. Iris, wipe your nose!” A few moments pass, and then Kathryn yells:
“NO, NOT WITH HAM!!”
These are things you never expect to say. Ever. But I’m willing to bet that a million other parents have repeated the same words at one time or another.
