Son #1 was sniffling and clearing his throat this afternoon. My husband asked. "Are you getting sick?"
Son #1sniffed again and moved his jaw to clear the stuffiness out of his ears. Then, he said. "No, but my ear is jammed up."
I furrowed my brow and motioned for Son #1 to come to where I was sitting. Son #1 obediently walked over to me and sniffed for the third time. I peered at his nose and ears. Then, I inquired. "What's going on with your ear?"
Son #1 moved his jaw to pop his ear again. He shrugged his shoulders and responded. "I don't know. My ear has a jam."
"He's been complaining about his ear being stuffed for a couple of days." My husband informed me.
"Hmm." I pondered. "Do you have allergies?"
"Maybe." Son #1 replied.
"Do you have a cold?" I asked.
"I don't know." Son #1 said as he moved in closer to me. "Feel my nose. Does it feel cold?"
Does his nose feel cold???
Kids are funny. They take things so literally. However, I felt his nose. It did not feel cold.
