A boy and his booger
Published on January 16, 2005 By Draginol In Home & Family

Only a little boy would think this way..

I caught my son picking his nose and eating it. Disgusting! I don't know why small children are such nasty creatures.

"That's disgusting! Do you realize how disgusting that is? Eating boogers is as bad, if not worse, than eating poop. Do you know that? Boogers are the trapped germs of your body trying to get out. They're absolutely filthy. Poop, amazingly, is actually cleaner than boogers. That's how disgusting that is!"

To which he responds:

"Are you saying I should eat my poop too?"

Sigh.

Yuck, what is it about kids that everything goes into their mouth? They will eat anything. I have caught the six year old I nanny for eating( yes chewing and swallowing) boogers, erasers, paper, wrappers, klennex, glitter, and jewels she picked off her little purse. So apparently little girls are just as nasty!

Hehehe. I've been trying to get Kole to stop picking her nose, too. Sadly, it only makes her pick her nose more.

LMAO...

One has to wonder. Kids, the pickiest eaters, living in horror of green vegatables, unwilling to try anything remotely new or odd looking... somehow, totally unprompted, eat dirt, grass, body fluids; shoving anything they find on the ground in their mouths...

There has to be a genetic reason.

Erm...Link

Makes sense. Poop is grosser anyway.

Exposure to low levels of bugs and germs is generally good for you, it helps the immune system build resistance to the more dangerous stuff, well at least that is the theory as I have heard it. I don't know if it actually true.

Boogers are not actually the germs of your body trying to get out. Boogers are caused by your nasal filtering out chemical that are caused in the air by inpurities. It is still gross though. Wemy as well eat pollution...and thank the Bush's for making booger's more octane per green stickiness.

Remeber the little song from childhood:

Everybody's doin' it, doin' it, doin' it
Pickin' their nose and chewin' it, chewin' it, chewin' it

Yuck!

I had actually heard it in person a couple days ago, that eating boogers helps the immune system. Oddly enough, Google came up with a ton of hits for "eating boogers".

As healthy as it is, remember: You can pick your friends, and you can pick your nose, but you can't pick your friend's nose.

As can I.  Be glad it was only a booger.......


Boys have an inherent need to put their fingers in their noses and then in their mouths, it would seem.  Both my two did it....be assured that he will grow out of it.

Hey, if fingers weren't meant to be in noses, why are nostrils and fingers such a perfect fit? ;~D
