I was desperate.
Our two-week-old daughter, Ruby, was horribly congested and hardly sleeping. I had refused to try the NoseFrida— a contraption that sucks snot from your child’s nose using the suction from your own mouth— because it was so gross. But the bulb syringe from the hospital was useless and we were exhausted. So I sucked. And Ruby calmed down. The thing worked, and I was stupidly good at it, even better than my wife. Suddenly I had this weird skill that could contribute to parenting in this meaningful way, and yes it’s a gross skill of sucking snot out of my kid’s nose, but still, I felt awesome about it. And here we are.
