Hot snot

I don't know... if you look really carefully, can you see the snot glaze on Evan's upper lip?

I don't think I ever appreciated how icky summer colds are. They're definitely worse than winter colds.

Because little boys run around and get hot and sweaty. Sweaty little boys smell like puppy dogs. (Do little girls ever smell like puppies? I have no way of knowing.) And dirt adheres to the sweat. Throw in a friendly virus, and the attendant mucous attracts lots of additional under-the-nose dirt.

So my sweet little baby turns into a puppy-dog-smelling, crusty, grimy, snotty, dirt-moustachioed mess.

I love you, Evan. And I hope you feel better soon.
