Philip is constantly busting his nose. The poor child has a Mayhew (my mom's side of the family) nose to begin with and with all the falls, running into walls, getting hit by base ball bats, etc. his poor nose keeps getting wider and wider! :-) He has a scab on his nose right now because he hurt it somehow this past weekend. On Tuesday at school he picked the scab and it started to bleed so the gym teacher put a big band aid across his nose. Philip refused to take off the band aid.

On Wednesday night one of the Tiny Tracker leaders asked Philip what happened to his nose, he replied "I picked it!" This response allowed all the leaders to have a nice laugh!

Thankfully on Thursday after being hosed down by his big brother Sam and being pushed over into mud and pine needles by the dog I had to throw him into the shower, taking the opportunity to RIP off the band aid. He cried and cried not because it hurt (which it did a little) but because he had planned on leaving the band aid on indefinitely.
