It's all about the boogers!


I have a confession to make:
I am OBSESSED with boogers. I cannot stand it when Lily's nose has a booger in it, or if I can tell by the way she is talking that her nose is stuffed up. I MUST get the boogers out of her little nose, no matter what the cost. Now, Lily HATES it when I go after her nose. She screams and cries and says "OUCH, IT HURTS!" (when I know, in fact, it does not hurt.) I try to explain to her that I am doing a good thing. She should THANK me for helping her breathe. Every once in a great while she WILL thank me, but usually she will reply (thru her tears) "All done breathe!"
But, the "booger sucker" is a part of our lives. I use it at least 3 times a week and that is just the way it goes. I have actually used it on her in the middle of the night while she was sleeping -- cuz I just couldn't handle the noises those things were making rattling around in her nostrils. So, this picture was taken a few months ago when Lily found another use for this baking utensil. Just looked like a giant booger sucker to my girl! Her latest retort is "I hode the booder sutter, momma. I do it like a big girl, all by yourself."
*Funny: Lily just came into the room and looked at the picture and said "Oh wook! It's a pitcher of Yiddy and the booder sutter, dats funny!"*

Love this post! You know, in some parts of the world the moms SUCK out the boogers for their kids and spit them on the ground (I've seen it done!) HOW ABOUT THAT FOR NASTINESS? Just don't become THAT obsessed! Ha!

She is soooo funny! There's going to be big excitement around your house when she is big enough to blow her nose (now picking it is another story)!

Ya I also can't stand seeing the boogers in his nose either. I pick them out but he's starting to resist my efforts. How do I teach him not to pick his nose if I'm so interested in doing it to him? Conundrum.
Oh dear I just read the suck boogers out comment. Now that's love man.

I can't tolerate boogers either. I am a constant wiper and I'm not afraid to take out the nose sucker!

Beckyb said...

That cracks me up - but I hear ya - I'm a booger hunter too - can't stand runny noses or boogers either!!! Hey, they'll always have clean noses if we have anything to say about it!!

I am so glad I found a friend that feels the same way I do about boogers. I cannot stand when I can see one in Shayna's nostril(s). Funny, I just got done with bathtime and saw a lovely booger and got it out. I showed Shayna and she replied, "yuckies!" Yup, it is yuckies. I am glad I will see you at BA, boogers annonomys.
