This morning Colt was making the strangest noise in the living room after he ate his breakfast. He’s got a touch of a cold and is a little stuffy in the mornings, so I assumed the strange noises had something to do nose blowing, however, when I went to investigate there was not a tissue to be found. I asked him what he was doing and he answered:
“My spitting stuff got into my ears but then I snarled it hard and it was gone and I could hear again!”
Amazingly, I understood that perfectly. Colt has a difficult time describing things in ways that other people might understand (his imagery seems to be shape/landscape based) so this was an extraordinary effort for him, using words like “spitting stuff” (saliva – or more likely mucus congestion in his sinuses) and “snarled” (*giggles* what an awesome word he used. Makes me think of Dr. Seuss!)
I sent a text to his dad, sharing the fun this morning, and he responded with “What is spitting stuff and how did it get into his ears???”
lol. Ahhhh my boys. Never a dull moment, I tell ya.
