FRIDAY FUNNY: Nose Picking

“Fingers out of your nose, please!”… “Don’t eat it!” …. “Hands out of your mouth, please!

If I got a dollar for every time I begged my toddler to stop picking his nose and eating it, I would be very, very wealthy.

For the past few months, nose picking (and oftentimes booger eating) has been my son’s guilty pleasure. It’s disgusting. It’s a bit embarassing. And it is one of the EASIEST ways to for him to get sick (hello, pin worms!) or spread germs to others.  On the flipside, many articles floating around out there insist that eating ones own mucus is GOOD for the immune system! Fingers crossed that that is true, because no matter how hard I try to get him to stop this typical-but-yucky habit, I don’t think he plans to stop any time soon. Those salty treats are just TOO GOOD.

Since it’s Friday, I thought we could all channel our inner child, and remember how much fun nose picking can be. Check out our pin board:
