About this blog

If you're looking for me to brag about how cute my kids are (which they are) or talk about how much weight I did or didn't lose this week, you are in the wrong place! I have a Facebook account for that. This blog is about the blunt truths of parenting, tips and tricks of the trade, some addicting mommy junk and all the other disgusting hilarity that ensues when you have kids...especially two kids only 12 months apart like myself.

Bubbi's nose fetish

Bubbi has a track record of shoving things in her nose.

Several months ago I was changing her Huggies Overnites Diapers, Size 5, Big Pack, 56-Count and I thought I saw something in her nose. I grabbed the tweezers and carefully dug in. I pulled out what was once a grape, then a raisin and now almost a grape again! Again, this was first thing in the morning! How long was that replumped raisin flipping in there? Yuck!

That was my first ever nose experience as Boo isn't a nose shover, or whatever the hell it should be called. Insert several months since then of telling Bubbi "NO" as she shoves pretzels, toys, her fingers and whatever else appeals to her nose cavity in there....

Today I'm driving merrily from the gym to the drive-thru Starbucks to reward the kids with food (bad mommy!). I look back at Bubbi and she has her snack, Gerber Graduates Sweet Potato Puffs, 1.48-Ounce Canisters (Pack of 6), shoved in both nostrils. I see that one side is bleeding!!!

What do I do? Take a quick photo at the next red light of course!

Quick note: she wasn't crying until I told her it was bleeding (a scare tactic to try and prevent this from happening all the flipping time).

Back to the story....light turns green and we zoom into the Starbucks drive-thru line. I tell her to blow and now the blood is really going. Lovely. I get her to blow again and bloody food is all over her mouth and chin...and yes, she licks it off and eats it before I can fly back there and wipe it off. 

Moral of the story? Well, all kids are different...Boo never did this kind of crap! And, as always, KIDS ARE NASTY!

That photo is priceless. You must keep that for future teenage negotiation years.
