Cleaning Tip

You'll be happy to know Jack valiantly squooooshed his first bug. See the little smudge between ring finger and baby finger? Look out spiders, I have me an exterminator!

Later he passed on an important cleaning tip. "Jack, don't pick your nose." Surprised once again at the many rules attached to this favorite finger pocket, he freezes. "Just leave the boogers in there, buddy."

"Oh." He lowers the offending finger trying hard not to look at a booger stuck to his fingernail. What to do with the green bumble? He sees I've noticed.

"Put back," he blurts. Yes, turns out even boogers can be put back. So, there you have it, weather Leggos, laundry - or boogers - when it doubt, put it back. Finger and booger exchange goods before a better answer comes to mind.

Oh My!! Well, I guess that's better than sticking it under the table!! What is it with kids and boogers anyway?! :)

HAHAHAHAHA I don't know, once it has been dislodged, it could come loose again at any moment...

Ok, I read this one to your Uncle Jim and his response to the better answer was "eat it." hahaha There were two things I never understood growing up. One was the continual admonition for me not to pick my nose, but then hearing "if you keep your nose clean. . ." ( I mean keeping your nose clean must be important, right?), and the admonition to not use too much toilet paper on one day, but "learn to wipe better!" on laundry day.(Said with a not very pleasant voice.) So the rules with my kids were "pick when no one is looking and just don't stick it on the wall." And "you go ahead and use as much toilet paper as you think you need, honey. Just try to remember to flush halfway in between." (said with plunger in hand)

Hilarious! Reminds me of a conversation I had with one of my kids recently:

"Mommy, I don't understand. I can't breathe through this side of my nose even though there aren't any boogers in there."

" do you know there aren't any boogers in there?"

"Well, I stuck my finger in there to check!"

Like, no-duh!

Kids and their noses...what a strange fascination :)

Oh, I love your stories! Haha, the eat-it factor. I have to admit the children periodically confess, "Boogers are yummy!" Then I think, well, if they snuff really hard the boogers just go down their throats and into their tummies any way. :)
