The Sucker

I've found a sure-fire way to make my son scream - get out 'the sucker.'

Poor Kicker has a cold (for that matter, so does Mommy). Every now and then, Mommy has to suction his little stuffy nose out. It doesn't matter that he's upset that he can't breathe while eating, that he's got something running out of his nose - nope, doesn't matter. He doesn't want the nose sucker anywhere near his face.

Arms start flailing, Kicker starts hollering, legs start kicking. Still, Mommy persists. A few moments later, Kicker sticks out a lip at me, and I pick him up. Suddenly, all is forgotten, and I have my smiling, happy boy back.

Until the next time, that is.
