So I never thought I would have the gross boy in class. I mean I know its normal for little kids to pick their noses and eat it but I didn't think MY kid would do it.
Yep, Jax likes to eat boogers. He picks his nose all the time and eats it. Anytime, any place. He will wake up in the morning and the first thing he does is dives in, knuckle deep. I swear he is going to touch his brain one of these days.
Now, at first I ignored it, but the more he did it the more it bugged me. So I decided to call him out on it in front of people, maybe the embarrassment would work, but it didn't, he didn't care.
So then I thought that if I told him boogers are like poop and you don't eat your poop so you shouldn't eat your boogers, but that didn't stop him either.
I told him that he could touch and hurt his brain, but he thought touching his brain would be cool.
So I guess I have to accept the fact that my son picks his nose and likes to eat it. Its just soo gross, if Hudson follows I am going to FREAK!!!!
I really wish there was some sort of health benefit to eating your boogers, like extra protein in your diet but I haven't come up with anything yet. I hope he doesn't do it in school, but I have to believe that he is the gross boy in class!! : (
