Someone's Got To Do It

It seems like lately whenever I look over at Big pup he has his finger in his nose. I don't want to embarrass him by yelling, "Stop picking your nose!" so I'll usually say something like, "Do you need a Kleenex?" But he always says no and continues picking his nose. Apparently, 6 year olds don't take hints very well.

So when I caught him doing it the other day I said, "What are you doing?" And he said, "Pickin' boogers. It's my job."

He may not understand the meaning of subtlety, but he has a good work ethic.

    You know Er never really picked her nose (that I saw anyway) but Em she picks and picks and picks all the time. Sometimes she has her finger so far up her nose I am wondering if she is actually touching her brain.

  16. My 17-month old just found the joy of picking her nose, but we made the mistake of laughing the first couple of times. Now, she does it all.the.time. to get a laugh.

    Good times.
