March 31, 2002 - Sunday
Day five of Harry's fever and Jeremy's cold. Jeremy's clearly recovering, but doesn't know how to cough and get the phlegm out of his nose and throat and that makes him gag. Harry has taken to picking his nose, although he doesn't really have a cold.

"What's that?" he says, extending his finger toward me with a small piece of light brown gel on it.
What does one say? "Why, that's a booger, son." Or "oh, it's snot. Just rub it on your pants like all the other kids." Somehow phlegm, mucus, and discharge don't really seem like terms that a two-year old is going to hang on to for all that long. I guess we have to figure this one out. Any suggestions?
