Levi: I have a sore on my nostroll.
Me: It's not a sore, it's a zit.
Levi: It hurts.
Me: Stop picking at it. Leave it alone.
Levi: Cuz it will get worse?
Me: Yes, it will get worse.
Levi: Iz a sore.
Me: It's a zit.
Levi: Wuz a zit?
Levi is covered in scars. Anytime he gets a sore of any kind, a mosquito bite, etc. he picks. Won't leave it alone. Takes forever to heal. I have been dreading the day he hits puberty and acne begins. The day when his face is covered in 'sores' and he won't leave them alone as he picks at them and scars his angelic face.
Levi has a zit on his nose. He's obsessed with it. I keep trying to get him to leave it alone. Gross moment. Maybe if I pop it and show him what's inside he'll leave it alone?
Me: Hold still.
Levi: Ow! Dat hurts!
Me: Look! This is what comes out of a zit. See? Don't pick. It's a zit, not a sore. Leave it alone.
Levi: You made me bleed. Iz a sore.
Oh puberty, please be kind to my son............
