In case anyone needs a good laugh today.

My oldest (he’s only 6) has had a slight cold. I’ve been giving him little Kleenex packets that are decorated to send to school in his backpack.

This morning I went to check his backpack to put more Kleenex in there if needed. I opened up the front compartment and found the above image.

Me: “Why is this in your backpack?”

Oldest: “I needed more tissues yesterday so I found more in the bathroom and put them in my backpack.”

Me: ?

Oldest: “They are so soft on my nose and make it feel better.”

Me: “Please tell me you didn’t open these “tissues” and use them at school??”

Oldest: ” Yes, all day yesterday.”

Editor’s note:  He’s right. They are soft and often scented. And at least it wasn’t used. BAH! LOL.
