It’s Really All Just Snot

all kinds of meds
Combatting the snot machine

With allergies in full bloom at my house, the lovely sound of hacking up stuff is alive and resonating in bathrooms and hallways.  My youngest recently recovered from a cold – hence the picture of all the ammunition that was used to get him through.

This is really just an observation about something that has bothered me since my boys were babies.  Clearly I am not a doctor, but I’ve always wondered why there are so many words for the same thing.

So here is what has bothered me for over 14 years now — If it’s in your throat, it’s drainage (or if you’re really fancy, post-nasal drip.)  If it’s running from your nose, it’s mucus.  In your chest, it’s congestion.  In your eyes, it’s discharge.  In your ears, it’s fluid.  If you cough it up, it’s phlegm.  But when you get right down to it, isn’t it really all just snot?

Thank you – I feel better now.  Plus I just restocked on Zyrtec this week.

Parenting Tip:  Keep yourself healthy.  Use a clean tissue to pick up the dirty ones….

[Psalm 41:3  Whenever we’re sick and in bed, God becomes our nurse, nurses us back to health. ]
