Boogers, on my!

12:15 PM

We have a slight booger problem at our house, you see...

A certain nameless 5 year old will not blow her nose. Not only will she not blow her nose, but I can't even get her to pick her nose! Who would've ever thought that a 5 year old would throw a fit with just the mention of putting a certain finger up her nose...

So, where does this leave me? Well, my daughter, who will still remain nameless, walks around with a stuffed up nose and boogers lodged up there...

What's a mom to do?

A couple months ago, I decided that this was enough. So, I got out the tweezers and every other day, I'd dig the fun boogers out. It didn't hurt her, but she didn't like it. It's hard to believe that she'd rather have a sharp tweezers up her nose than her own finger, but whatever...

Now, she has told me that she doesn't like the tweezers at all! I have begun using a q-tip to dig them out. Seriously...have you ever heard of such a thing?

So, today as I look at my 5 year old, who will still remain nameless, and hear her talk all stuffed up, I know what I will have to do today. Yes, I tried to show her this finger she could use to get them out, but no...she won't do it.

Off to go and get my q-tip again...

Do y'all have any other ideas (besides the nose-sucker) as to how to get boogers out of a nameless 5 year old's nose?
**As I read this to her, she said "Of course I'll use my finger, someday!"
