My 9mo baby was on her tummy on her big sister’s bed and wiping her nose – which had a few crusty boogers inside – on the sheets, so I said, “Sweetie, don’t wipe your boogers on your sister’s bed!” (As if she’s going to listen, I know.)
Hilariously, the following conversation ensued:
3yo: “I always put my boogers in my mouth at nighttime.”
3yo: “Yeah, when I’m sitting at night I always put them in my mouth.”
3yo: “Because I like to! Do you want to see?” Then she proceeds to fake pick her nose and wipe her finger on her tongue … calmly, as only a toddler can.
You can be sure we had a manners conversation – after I stopped laughing!
