Boogers are yummy

2 Jan

Me: “Are you picking your nose?”

Hannah: “I have a booger.”  Fair enough, I mean it’s hard to get those hard crusty ones out.  It’s not like you can just grab a tissue and blow.  That won’t help at all.  And admit it or not, but everyone picks their nose sometimes.

She looked at the booger on her finger. I thought maybe she’d try to hand it to me.  She’s done that before (“here Mommy,” as she puts something in my hand.  I have a look and discover, to my horror, that it’s a booger).  No, it wasn’t being thrust towards my hand at all.  Her index finger moved swiftly, purposefully down to her mouth.

Me: “We don’t eat boogers Hannah.”

Hannah: “Boogers are yummy.”

Me (trying not to laugh, but disgusted at the same time): “Boogers are not yummy, boogers are icky.”

Hannah: “Boogers are yummy.”

    My little girl took boogers one step farther. Not only did she wonder why, if we can’t eat them, did God make boogers taste good, but she would scavenge money from the couch cushions and buy the Harry Potter Every Flavor Beans so she could pick out the booger flavored ones. She liked those best. I can’t even believe I’m disclosing this. I’m still embarrassed to this day.

    Too funny! My little one isn’t old enough for the booger thing yet, but I imagine it will go something like this 🙂

    I like this post. Quick and to the point about kids and boogers. I’m a stay home dad and my daughter is 2 1/2yrs. old. I’m constantly paranoid that she’s got boogers on her nose, fingers or wherever, because she keeps showing me. I think she knows it bothers me so she makes it a point to show me. Then when I get up to clean her, she runs into my couch full speed just so she can rub them off real fast, because she knows that bothers me the most. Good stuff. Hope dads are aloud into the club:)

    Boogers are the one taboo thing that people don’t want them to see them doing is picking their nose. Nevertheless, everyone still picks their boogers regardless. Kids get a pass or a slap on the wrist, lol they don’t know any better!
