What happens when trains are hurled down the steps?
What does the living room look like from the top of the book case?
What will happen if I put a green bead up my nose?
The answers may seem obvious to us grown-ups, but little boys don't want to take our word for it. Some things must be experienced.
One little boy came home from preschool slightly upset. He said he had a green thing in his nose.
Seeing snot, I quickly wiped it, asked if someone had made fun of him for the snot and dismissed the incident.
But little boy was still not happy. Until 15 minutes later when he proudly told me he got the green thing out of his nose.
Apparently there was more than snot up there.
That was when little boy number 2 suddenly got upset. Remember, how little boys are curious creatures...
I guess having a green bead stuck up your nose looked like fun. Little boy #2 could not be denied. His brother had experienced it, he had to try it.
Only he couldn't get it out by himself. 10 minutes and a pair of tweezers later...
We had that nasty green bead.
Then we sat down and had a little talk about the importance of not shoving items up your nose.
Let's hope it sticks.
