After one week at daycare, both of Steve's kids already have runny noses. It's nothing serious and we affectionally call it "daycare crud", but it's the center of this week's Daddy Tips. So, sit back and learn about daycare sickness, how to take care of runny noses, and find out why you should never trust your toddler with a glass of milk.

  1. This week’s first Daddy Tip is for all the parents who are about to send their kid to daycare for the first time. Get ready for some random sicknesses. Charlotte and Izzy just started daycare again last week and they already have runny noses. It’s nothing serious, but it didn’t even take a week for them to catch a cold. So, be ready for your kids to get sick, but it’s OK because this will just build up your kid’s immunity for when they eventually go to school.
  2. The next Daddy Tip is for when your kid gets that runny nose for the first time. Forget those bulb syringes, because the best way to clear your kiddo’s nose passage is sucking it out with your mouth. OK, not actually with your mouth, but with the NoseFrida. It’s like a straw with a filter that lets you suck the snot right out of your kid’s head. It’s seriously the best way to clear out your kid’s nose. It’s called the NoseFrida and you can pick it up at most major stores.
  3. And the final Daddy Tip is for parents of toddlers. Just know that toddlers spill everything always. Charlotte is finally to the point where she likes to use normal glasses instead of sippy cups and we’ve learned quickly that she will spill her glass almost 100% of the time if she isn’t sitting at the table. And even when she is sitting at the table, she will most likely spill it there too. And don’t even think about giving them a bowl of food on the couch because it will get spilled. So, just relax and don’t cry over spilled milk because it will happen quite often.

And now it’s time for an awesome Dad Joke!

My wife told me to put ketchup on the shopping list...
