But he doesn't like my cooking???

Well, I hate to call it out in public, but we're working with our little B-man about a very gross problem: nose picking. I'd love to hear if anyone has a solution to that gem. But, this isn't a vent about nose picking. Instead, it's a funny story. About nose picking.

Yay for mommy blogs!

So, the other day, I caught B-man picking his nose again. I told him to stop, and like always, he asked why.

With a distinct tone of frustration in my voice, I said, "First, it's disgusting."

He stopped me and said with that same tone of frustration, "Mom, first, it's delicious."

Yeah, now we're working on not eating our boogers...

I'm of the campt that kids are supposed to eat their boogers - it's part of building up natural immune defenses. We just try to get Murph to do it in the bathroom. :)

Hi. I'm having the same problem with my daughter. She was doing it about a year ago & sticking them on the walls. She just started picking her nose again about a month ago. Now she is eating them too. It really grosses me out. haha. The other night I was putting her to bed & she had her finger up her nose. I told her to not do that. She yelled "I eat boogers". Then said "I put salt on my boogers & eat them". I tried not to laugh, but it was funny. Anyway, I found you on New England bloggers. I'm from MA, but live in NH now.
