The First Nose Pick

I noticed Bubber Boo with his left pointer finger in his left nostril and was astonished. First, he truly is a leftie (so cool!) and second, babies don't pick their noses, toddlers do. And then, get this, his finger slowly dragged down toward his mouth and viola! right in the mouth. To sum up, the kid picked his nose and then put it in his mouth.

And then it occurred to me to ask him where he learned such a thing. "You must have learned that from the bad kids, the ones from the broken homes." I know it was the wrong thing to say, and SK was horrified, but I figured I'd tackle the heavy social issues before Abe turns three in hopes that he exhausts all of the hard questions and we can deal with the easy stuff like how many sodas a child may injest in a 24 hour period thereafter.

My kid does not eat his boogers! He may pick them; he likes to discover new things, but his finger just happened to slip towards his lips. He didn't intentionally eat it.

I feel like my husband says "get your finger out of your nose" to our toddler 10x a day. The little sweet'ums likes to suck his thumb while putting the index finger in the nose. I think it is sorta cute. Husbie, not so much.

It's amazing the things we find cute about our children. I once said that I would never take the "messy eater/spagetti eater" picture of my child because they always made my stomach turn, now I really want to but evil aunt Laura reminds me of my promise.
