Sniffle, Sniffle, Sniffle, BLOW!
I am constantly baffled by the amount of drippy noses in my classroom. Have the nerves surrounding their noses not developed yet? Do they like the feeling of the oozing liquid dripping down their upper lip? Do they keep it there for a little extra snack?
I don’t understand it.
For me, the rule is two sniffles and I am off to get a tissue! If there is no tissue to be found, I use whatever I can scrounge up from my purse. If there is nothing in my purse, I use my handy dandy sleeve (come on you have done it too), but I never let nose goop run out my nose!
I sincerely hope that they will soon learn that it is much more pleasant to have a clean nose. If that isn’t possible, I hope that cold season ends soon. Maybe tomorrow?
