That's not the kind of gold we're digging for...


Today at the beginning of the day, my little Maria danced into our room. She's a gorgeous little thing, all decked out in her Sunday-best for picture day. Here's the first thing that came out of her mouth:

"My mom told me I have to stop eating my boogies.


But the crunchy ones are just so good. I don’t eat the gooey ones. No, no, no! Just the crunchy ones."

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! What a great pic too! And all I could think was something about she has to kiss her mom with that mouth...but the joke just wasn't pulling all together, so I can only share this much. What a riot. Thanks for the laugh!

just making my way said...

Oooo. I probably could have done without hearing that one.

Does every school in the country have picture day today or what?

Scary Mommy said...

I just threw up in my mouth. Kids are so fucking nasty.

Midwest Mommy said...

Um that is just plain gross.

Coco said...

Gag. Kids and buggars. Yuck.

Secretia Teller said...

Kids are sooo honest!

Under the Influence said...

Crunch crunch crunch...

Now I cant get THAT sound out of my mind!!!

CatLadyLarew said...

Ah, a booger connoisseur! The discriminating gourmand always chooses the crunchy ones. (But I wouldn't know that from personal experience... it's just the scuttlebutt around the kindergarten.)

blueviolet said...

I feel as if I really missed out on a culinary delicacy as a child. Now it's too late to take a taste.

The Mind of a Mom said...

I read your post to the family as they ate dinner! LoL
Good think we were not having creamed-spinach for dinner. LMBO!

Maggie said...

Spit coke all over my keyboard. Thanks a lot Maria!

Jeanne said...

Went to Kylie's Grandparents' Day today, ate lunch with her class, and I have a question for you:

How in the hell do you listen to 6 of them at once????

Snappy Di said...

I bet all the commenters gagging eat their boogies and are just trying to pull the wool over our eyes... LMAO

Oh My Goddess said...

Ick.
Sorry.
Now you have to bear with this classic:
How do you make a Kleenex dance?
You put a little boogie in it.

shortmama said...

BLECH!!

Vodka Logic said...

Ask her what they taste like.... ewwww

Scobberlotcher said...

Why did I read this while making dinner? :(

kimmirich said...

Eeew and hahhaha!

Lynn said...

I had a student once named Boogerface.
I think his mother named him something else, but to me he was Boogerface.

Mrs. E said...

OK. That grossed me out for today!

Pastor Sharon said...

That is so funny! Kids. . . . you do have yourself a gold mine of little angels there! Everyone of them disguised and little devils and I bet you wouldn't trade them for anything.

Cora said...

Now that's a little TOO honest.

Anne said...

Hmmm... tastes like chicken? Perhaps... nasty anyway. :-)

Hope she picks a winner every time.

WeaselMomma said...

Kids connoisseur!

Sara said...

Well, I guess she has a point...

Sparkless said...

EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!! Well make sure you get that one written down somewhere to torture her with when she's a teenager! LOL

Not The Rockefellers said...

Sneeze Doodles!

Peace - rene

sitting on the mood swing at the playground said...

When I babysat, I told the little girl to stop picking her nose. She said, "No, it's booteeful." I said, "No, it's not--it's ucky. Her response was, "Yes, it is booteeful. My mom does it all the time."

otin said...

If you leave the gooey ones out for about 24 hours, they will be crunchy also!!! haha!

Mrs. D said...

She's a discriminate booger-eater, isn't she? A booger snob.

Jen said...

Ok - am I the only one who remembers doing this, or the only one who would admit to it? :)

Anna See said...

My son tried to convince all of us..."If people only tried boogers they'd realize how great they are!"

This is the kid who wouldn't TOUCH a hot dog, chicken nuggets, or a hamburger.

Jenni Jiggety said...

Why are kids so gross? LOL!

Joanie M said...

I guess my diet is going to start... right about... now. Thanks.

A Mom on Spin said...

I don't think I even have a comment for THAT one!

Ashley.SoItGoes said...

And I was under the impression that the opposite was true!

Char said...

OMG, please, I have a very low gag level. EWWWWWE

Sprite's Keeper said...

I always question just how finicky my daughter's palate claims to be when she digs for treasure in the northern mines.

Prefers Her Fantasy Life said...

Do you think the gooey vs. crunchy is a future predictor of gummy bears vs. Butterfingers?

Midlife Jobhunter said...

Bless the teachers and the boogers!

Captain Dumbass said...

The amount of time they can spend digging...

Zip n Tizzy said...

Mmm...
Thanks Maria!

LadyFi said...

Delicious! And it's food to go... so you're never hungry! ;-)

LegalMist said...

eeeewww!

but you've got to give the kid credit for knowing *exactly* what she likes...

anymommy said...

I think I feel a little ill. Oh, my son does it, but I still feel a bit off.

Irish Chick Soup said...

I knew this was going to be a booger post as soon as I saw the title in my roll.

I read somewhere that kids eating their buggers is actually a good thing, because it helps build their immune systems by ingesting all the dust particles that the nasal cavity blocked from going up into the brain.

...Doesn't stop the involuntary scrunch my face made when I read this post, though.

Twenty Four At Heart said...

Ewwww! But thank you for killing my appetite for the evening. I need all the help I can get!

flutter said...

good protein

Ekanthapadhikan said...

Kids could be so unassumingly funny.

And the pic. is really cool!

Irish Gumbo said...

...ack...ewww...

Rick Daley said...

You know how to make a kleenex dance?

Put a little boogie in it.

Alix said...

The child has excellent "taste." I prefer the crunchy ones myself.

Tammy Howard said...

Well, sure. Who doesn't like a crunchy one?

Maureen@IslandRoar said...

I shudder to think what my kids used to share with their teachers...

Eternally Distracted said...

I think I was just a little sick ... ;0)

Keyona said...

Gag!

Angie Ledbetter said...

Gotta love a girl who knows her own tastes! :D

Real Live Lesbian said...

AND...they're FREE! ;)

Again, glad I have dogs.

Brian Miller said...

mmm...may have to skip lunch now...you know i can reach my nose with my tongue...just saying...

adrienne said...

Snot cool at all. :P

Shana said...

She is probably right

Fragrant Liar said...

Ha! When I first saw that picture, I thought you'd caught an image of me in my rearview mirror. No one can see you when you're driving, you know.

Cute kid.

*Akilah Sakai* said...

I call timeout! Nast! Just nast! (But still funny as hell.)

staceyjwarner said...

at least she has discerning taste...

Pop and Ice said...

Oh God, my tea and Apple Blossom are coming back up....

ModernMom said...

Eeeek. Well, that's honest anyway!

McSass said...

hahahaha I think I just threw up in my mouth a little!

Roshni Mitra Chintalapati said...

Uuuugh!! She didn't actually say that...did she?!!?

Suzy said...

Oh great, a year of gross children's personal behavior. When does the plane leave for Samoa?

Joanie said...

Somewhere there's a little kid who only likes the gooey boogers. Maria's soulmate. The yin to her yang.
