For a while, Conal has been very good about runny noses. When he’d have one, he’d let us know that it needed to be wiped by pointing to his nose. I’ve been glad that he’s more or less allowed us to wipe his nose with no problem.

Today, he changed. He’s certainly not resisting the nose wipe (this is, after all, a child who really likes to have his hands washed). Instead, he’s doing it by himself. His new thing is to notice his runny nose, trot into the bathroom to grab a tissue, walk over to Owen or me, wipe his nose, smile, and then throw the tissue in the trash.

He is quite proud of his nose-wiping skills.
