You gonna eat that?

I was changing the baby’s diaper, and my 2-year-old was sitting next to me. After the diaper was changed, I saw that the baby had an enormous booger blocking one of her nostrils, so, like any mother, I pulled it out of her little nose.

My 2-year-old said, “Mommy, you gonna eat that?”

“No,” I said, laughing, “I was just helping her breathe better.”

“Can I eat it? I like tasty boogers!”

(In my defense: a) I did not let her eat the booger, b) when I stopped laughing/crying because I was laughing so hard, I did try to tell her again that boogers are germy and we shouldn’t eat them, c) I debated about whether this was too gross to post, but funny trumped gross.) :)

    ROFL!!! :-) What a cutie! And actually, there’s a theory that eating boogers is actually a form of self-immunization, since the germs are less likely to do harm in an acid bath, LOL… there’s *my* gross-out contribution for the day! ;-) Love you!!! :-)
