Saving Lives...One Booger at a Time

Tomorrow is Justin's national EMT Registry exam. It is the final step for him to become an official Firefighter/EMT. Between feedings, diaper changes, and the other really interesting things that go on at our house, he tried to study a little bit tonight. At one point his text book was sitting out and open to a picture of a man administering CPR to another man. Jonah was very intrigued by this. He studied the picture carefully and then began to ask questions. "Who is that?" "Why are they laying down?" "What is the other man doing?" "Why?" "Why?" "Why?" Justin's explanation was that the EMT man was trying to help the other man because he was having a hard time breathing. Jonah, thinking of the only reason he has ever had trouble breathing, thoughtfully asked, "Daddy, does he have boogers?"
Thank God for the beautiful mind of a three-year-old.
