We were driving down the road on Sunday evening when I looked into the back seat of the car and saw my five year old with his thumb in his nose. Our dysfunctional conversation went something like this...
Mommy: Camden, get your thumb out of your nose. You're supposed to use a tissue!
Camden: This is plan B.
Mommy: What's plan A?
Camden: Plan A is use a tissue, Plan B is pick your nose, Plan C is take a piece
of apple and use it to pick your nose. (huh?)
Mommy: (Hands him a tissue)
Camden: I just need to see if I can feel something up there (inserts bare finger
into nose tissue)
Camden: Yep, there's something up there!
I imagine you're probably questioning my parenting, so let me be clear for the record:
1. I fully support Plan A.
2. I totally believe Plan B is gross but inevitable for a certain short period of a child's life.
3. I must admit I'm actually a little strangely curious to see Plan C in action...
...anyone curious to see what Plan D could be?
