You may remember me writing about kissing kids (and fainting mommies) not too long ago. And now, I know what you’re thinking. How could a training bra possibly be linked to eating boogers. Am I right? Of course I am.
I’ll tell you how they’re related. Read on at your own risk.
1:12:00pm Mommy: Driving along innocently last Saturday, happy about how sunny it is in late October, happy about…
1:13:00pm Daughter: “Mom? Can I have a training bra? My friend <Blah Blah> has one and so does <Blah> and <Blah>.”
1:13:30pm Mommy: WHAT?! WHAT?! But! But! You’re just…WHAT?
1:13:50pm Mommy: “Hmmm, really honey? I didn’t know that they had them.”
1:14:00pm Daughter: “They do.”
1:14:10pm Daughter: ”So when can I get one?”
1:14:50 Mommy: “Uhh…errr…let me think about when we have time to shop, ok? We’re really busy.”
1:14:57 Daughter: “ Ok…..Mom?”
1:15:00pm Mommy: Crap. WHAT NOW? “What?”
1:15:05 Daughter: “Did you know that <Blah>, <Blah>, and <Blah> still eat their own boogers?”
And there you have it…presenting the world of a nine-year-old: training bras, and booger eatin’ all rolled into a three minute conversation.
I need a hot fudge sundae dammit.
One quick recommendation while we are on the subject of boogers…as we head into flu season. If your kid is one of those kids with a nosey full of boogies, try out SinuCleanse. It’s a safe and simple way to clear out your kids’ nasal passages with a saline solution (which is what the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends). It has an easy to aim nozzle that does not need to be inserted into the nostril…check it out so they don’t eat ‘em!
