We finally found something that Metta is terrified of.
The snot sucker.
She woke up at five this morning with a face covered in snot- and a bit congested and coughing. I got out the saline and the sucker to clean her out and you would have thought I was removing her brains through her nose. I took her downstairs for the procedure and Kent could hear her screaming: "owie! owie! owie! owie!" from upstairs.
These pictures are from this evening. She has a little PTSD and now screams if I even hold the thing closer to her.
Besides torturing our kids- we've been trying to come up with some good ideas for Christmas gifts for them. We don't really want more STUFF to move- so we've got to come up with some other great ideas for aunts and uncles and g-parents to give them. I'm not completely against small things - but they really don't need any more toys!!
thoughts? ideas? for a family gift we are considering something fun like a trip to great wolf lodge- or other activity to do. But what can extended family get them? I'm open to any and all suggestions!!
