Whatever Works

A recent conversation between myself and Kale went a little something like this:

Kale (holding his index finger up in the air): "MOM! I have a booger!"

Me (calling from the other room): "Then get a tissue."

K: "I can't reach them."

M (running toward the box of Kleenex): "I'll get you one"

K: "Never mind. I just wiped it on my shirt."

What's worse? I was totally okay with this.

Posts like this make me thankful I have prissy girly girls.


I did have 2 older brothers and I have 4 brother-in-laws and I don't think ANY of them are past this stage.


Funny stuff!

I have no real problems with such behavior either. There are only reasons I'd make an issue of using a Kleenex. 1)because the kids won't wash their hands afterward. 2) because they are bound to do this out in public some time and it will likely gross everyone out...

that's just me.

I grew out of that sort of behavior. They will too.

I think you've read my own experiences with "boogies"..sans our 3 year old. OH what fun. A few times he's smirked at me while acting like he's going to put the boogie in his mouth. When I holler at thim NO..he asks me WHY? What do I say........I just say YUCK!

Oh what my little one will have in store for me when he grows up....(seeing as he's only 7 months old)

Minnie, I have just infected you with The Indie Virus. Don't worry, it's not harmful! It's just a silly blog virus. Come to my blog to see how to infect others. You MUST infect others!

That is so funny!! I probably grossed so many people out when my babes were little. When they had the runny nose syndrome and tissues were not available I used my fingers to wipe their noses. The inside of my shirt bottom got pretty crusty but it was better than them having the "glazed doughnut face" all the time.

My oldest is 17 and was always good about wiping her nose and washing her hands. My now 14 yods was not and he would gladly still tease about boogers and most every other body function! ;) My other 3 are milder versions of him.
