I squirted saline up his nose.
And then I used my mouth to suck snot out and up through a plastic tube.
After changing him into a swim diaper, I carried him on my hip to the pool.
Less than halfway there, I felt the warm liquid flowing down my side.
I flew him high up in the air above my head.
As he flashed me a big grin, drool and partially digested milk dripped down into my mouth.
I held his body across my lap as he took a break from eating to overfill his diaper.
My hand caught the excess.
All in a day’s work.
