There's nothing like a conspicuous scab right on the tip of your kid's nose to make you feel like a bad parent. Toddlers walk, run, and occasionally fall. And even though it's normal and doesn't mean you're a bad parent, if that scab is on your kid's face it's a constant reminder that somehow you messed up.

So if you see me out and about, and you happen to notice the small scab on the end of Madame's nose that she got from running and falling the other day, DON'T MENTION IT TO ME FOR CHRISSAKES. Do you think I haven't noticed it yet? She might even say "boo boo nose" as she points to her nose, but I don't need to relive it every freaking moment of the day.

And don't ask her "What happened to your noooooose????" What do you think happened? Do you think gnomes sneaked into her room in the middle of the night and roughed her up? Or maybe she intentionally fell down and got a scrape on her nose because that's what all the cool kids are doing these days? Or maybe the goddamn Disney Princesses told her to scratch her nose?

Jesus. Just freaking smile and say hello like you're going to next week after it finally heels.
