Day 5 of #40Days. That smell.

A few years ago, we noticed a foul smell.  We thought Asher had a sinus infection.  His breath was horrible.  Then Kk got the same odor. 

Asher and Kk in 2006.
It was weird.  So, to the doctor we went with both of them.  We have a great pediatrician, Dr. Cameron Blevins.  When he looked in Asher's nose, he laughed and reached for some tweezers.

He pulled out a sponge!!!

Then, he did the same with Kk.

They had apparently played with one of my car-wash sponges and torn off a couple pieces when no one was looking.  Yep, they put the sponges up their noses.  After a while, of course, mucus collected in the sponges and turned sour.

Today a friend told about his child's nasal treasure.  With a sneeze, a raisin flew out.  They had raisins with breakfast a couple days ago.

It's funny what little kids will do.  But remembering funny little stories like this is joy.  The joy of parenthood.

Psalm 127:3
   Don't you see that children are God's best gift?
      the fruit of the womb his generous legacy?
   Like a warrior's fistful of arrows
      are the children of a vigorous youth.
   Oh, how blessed are you parents,
      with your quivers full of children!
   Your enemies don't stand a chance against you;
      you'll sweep them right off your doorstep.

That's day #5 of 40 Days.

God Bless,
Dadofmykids

Sometimes, I still smell it. But it's only in my head.
