It's All Fun and Games Until Somebody Eats a Booger

All of my children have the unfortunate habit of being nose-pickers. The oldest has been known to wipe them on the wall next to his bed, as we discovered when we painted his room. I'm not sure what the four year old does with hers. I try not to ask.

Yesterday, the two year old ran up, finger protruding with a newly discovered treasure. "Look Mommy! I found a booger!"

"That's great. Can I wipe it off onto a Kleenex for you?"

"No. I'll just eat it. [lick]"

"Um. We don't eat our boogers."

"I do. I like them."

Who needs tasty, nutritious and delicious meals any way?


Glad to hear mine is not alone.

Side note: Paul has taught Jay to say "Mmmmm, tasty!" whenever he's asked how he likes his food. He's been known to over-apply his training. ("Do you like Guess[ the Wonder Pony]?" "Mmmm! Tasty!")
