My Darling Niece

 |  Parenting, Personal

I didn’t go into work today because I wasn’t feeling great and instead, spent most of the day munching on dry toast to get over the sicky feeling in my tummy. Anyway, come this afternoon I was feeling a bit better so decided to pop to the shop and drop some CDs in for my sister-in-law on the way..

As I entered her front room my niece chucked her arms in the air so I could give her a big hug (nothing new there) and then proceeded to wipe her snotty nose on my t-shirt. She patted me on the back as if to reassure me that it didn’t matter I was now covered in snot, and promptly fell asleep on my shoulder.

Nice to know I’m good for something…

    Welcome to the world of todderhood…I’m so glad those days are past for me…unless I decided to have more (which isn’t an annoucement and is in fact highly unlikely). Heh.

    Mmm, snot-covered Jem. And don’t worry, I’m sure you’re more than a snot-rag, eventually you’ll be the spit-up rag, too! And then you’ll be living the high life, ;)

    Mmm, snot. My favorite delicacy. It’s best when seasoned properly, and you have to heat it to just the right temperature. Serve it with a cup of chunky milk and have a dishing of vomit on the side, it’s great.

    *Schnirf* *Wipes nose on Jem’s snotty t-shirt* You can collect people’s snot on your clothes! :D Woo! :P (Yes I’m up at random o’clock again. Can’t sleep due to recent events and stuff :/ )

    I thought you knew that what she did, give you her snot, is a special gift. Not many are blessed enough for a child to feel comfortable to make such an emotional transaction… ;-) But, super “Aw” about the falling asleep on the shoulder bit… that is the cutest. They are always so peaceful when they doze off…
