Soap and Holes

"Mommy?" Joseph comes walking down the hallway towards me.

"Mom?" I could tell something was wrong with him, but he was so calm.

He stops in front of me, tears flowing from his eyes, but he's not crying. He's grinding his teeth and acting like its hard for him to swallow. I start to feel worried.

"What is it Joseph, what wrong?"

"Mommy, my mouth hurts." That's all he would say.

Knowing that he and Savannah had just been playing in the bathroom, suspicion starts to set in. I notice the little green flecks by his mouth.

"Joseph, did you eat some soap?" He shakes his head and keeps repeating that his mouth hurts. I ask him over and over again if he ate soap and still he denied it. Finally, after asking Savannah, she gets this huge smile on her face and says, "Yea, he ate the soap!"

I check his breath... oh ya, very soapy. I make him open his mouth and I see the green embedded in his teeth. Well, time to go brush and get a drink! As we go into the bathroom to get his toothbrush I see this!

I felt sorry for the little guy but it was kind of funny to see this little bite taken out of the bar of soap.

Here's Joseph after we got him all fixed up. He's trying to show me his mouth but I wanted to get that little tear still by his eye. It was just so cute!

It always fun to watch these little people discover things. Especially when its their eyes, ears, cheeks, things like that. But I have to say, I'm not too fond of them discovering the nose.

Once they figure out that they have a nose, they start to investigate.

Once they find that the nose contains holes, is undergoes massive research. Food, utensils, toys, and fingers, all seem to find their way into that research at some point. Jacob, decided to try double duty tonight, strictly research you understand.

I had an EFY teacher tell a story about his (or his friend's) little girl who wanted to see how many peas would go in her nose. When parents finally noticed that she was feeling, oh, not that great, they eventually ended up at the hospital where they found she'd put 17 peas up her nose! Good luck! :-)
