I Have A Booger...

As a mother, there have been many phrases that I've said or heard that I never thought I would. Before I was a mom I would have probably been completely grossed out by many tasks that I've had to face - now they don't even phase me. Of course, when I take a minute to sit back and evaluate what just happened-like I am right now-I can't help but laugh.

On the way to drop Evan off at preschool this morning, I hear a little 2 year-old voice proudly announce, "Here Mommy, I have a booger!" as she reached her little arm up as far as she could. I keep a box of tissues up front specifically for issues such as this and the problem was solved as I passed a tissue to the backseat, but it made me think of all the "gross" things that I've conquered.

A mom's life is filled with boogers, poop, pee, dirt, bodily functions, and even the mystery nasty goop. No, its not glorious - at all - but it is by far the best job I've ever had!

What have your kids done lately that had you sitting back wondering what the "you 10 years ago" would have thought.

  Pin It!

My shirt being used as a tissue for my boys is so gross, yet happens on an almost daily basis. The me of 10 years ago would have been reaching for some serious sanitizer.

My boys can be so gross sometimes! Especially right now when everyone has snotty noses...I feel like I am constantly cleaning the snot off of somebody's face:)

I use to be a germ freak until my son turned 2. The wailing of his crys as his lollipop or cracker hits the ground broke me of that. I use the 5 second dust of rule and it solves many problems. And thankfully he has survived to the ripe "old" age of 6.

Everything! I used to wonder how my friends could share everything they owned with their children, and I thought, Never! I wondered how they could deal with extremely icky noses and not having any time. Now, I would NEVER give it up! (My daughter hands me boogers, too)

It's so true, and we don't even blink! We wouldn't get through a day if we got all squeamish about everything.

Isaak's handed me many boogers. He also lays in his bed at night and says, "Mommy my butt itches!"

I ready in a article once about a list of things that make us "officially" a mommy. One of the items was that you've picked your child's nose. Guilty! **shamefaced**

Two stories:
While ago my son was sitting on the couch squirming and looks at me and says "Mommy I got issues" I Said what kind? He says "butt issues, I need to be wiped" LOL
Just recently I went to lunch with a friend, son was with us. In the middle of eating my son announces (loudly) "I gotta poop, I gotta poop". I without hesitation told him ok, lets go. My poor friend's face was redder than her hair! LOL

Oh, the boogers, poop, snot and more! I think more than the things I've done, it's the things I've said!
