what to do with a used tissue

Pin It

This is a tale of what to do with a used tissue, as demonstrated by Elizabeth (with some background):

Jude has been working with Elizabeth on blowing her nose, as she's had a stuffy/runny nose for a few days. She has been moderately successful at this. Today, she was sitting on Jude's lap, playing with his cell phone. Suddenly, she brought the phone to her face, and blew her nose. On the phone. Nice.

So, Jude gets a tissue and cleans up phone and baby. We then give Elizabeth a clean tissue to play with. Low, and Behold, she holds it up to her face, and blows her nose, several times in a row! (I didn't know that a 12 month old could learn this. Astonishing!)

Jude gives her several tissues over the next few minutes, some she uses by her self, some with assistance. The tissues collect on the sidetable near where she was sitting.

Later, Elizabeth is wandering the house while I am on the phone with my Mom. Jude is doing something else, too. He walks into the room with *part* of a used tissue and says, " I think she ate the rest of it!" Gross.

On further exploration, he finds that no, you're not supposed to EAT the tissue (according to Elizabeth) but you are supposed to rip it to small pieces, and then shove said small pieces into various shoes that are placed by the door. Maybe used tissues help with shoe odor?
