A Day Not to be Remembered

My husband and I have 5 children. When each was born, my husband liked to gently push on their little noses. Somehow, he determined that we have three squishy-nosed children and two hard-nosed children. He also thinks that I have a hard nose. I have no idea what that means except that this distinction came to mind today as text messages were exchanged.

It seems that the three of us hard-nosed persons were feeling especially trapped by current circumstances (weather and COVID19) and were exhibiting similar unhealthy behaviors. I’m not proud of this, but merely stating the reality. Here is evidence from a day not to be remembered:

    That conversation made me giggle. My daughters have been fairly tame in comparison. But then again, neither is coming home because “the Internet sucks at our house”.


    Thanks for sharing this with us today! It is memorable! 🙂

    I am intrigued by the hard and squishy noses, what exactly does he mean? Are you saying hard-nosed people are less able to sit and relax?? This is definitely an interesting slice!

      We are flexible in what attributes apply:) But interestingly, my squishy-nosed children have darker hair and 2 of them have brown eyes, rather than blue. Hard-nosed children kept their blonde hair longer and have blue eyes and maybe a little more temper.

    Funny text exchange. I really want to know if you found the jelly beans. Does that mean I have a hard nose or a squishy nose? Love the peek into your family’s inside jokes.

    Loved this conversation…never heard of the hard nose, squishy nose test…with toes. Curious as to how you do the test?
