it’s always funny at first

it’s always funny at first

May 10, 2007

This morning Miles stood on my case of diet coke and got into the junk drawer. The drawer that is a black hole sucking everything that has no permanent home in a 5 mile radius into it’s dark abyss. Broken crayons, lost buttons, plastic things that people swear belong to some game I don’t think we have ever owned, small notepads with most of the pages used up, bits of string… all of these things call this drawer home.

Way in the back was one of those blue bulb baby snot suckers.

Miles pulled it out and used it on himself a few times. He threw it down to floor and laughed after every time. A far different reaction than I got from him when I would try to use it. Let’s just say there was never any laughing involved. On his part.

After a couple of minutes he decided to share the fun. He slowly went around the house and stuck it into the noses of his unsuspecting siblings. Who all loudly screamed their displeasure.

I laughed from the other room.

That is until I heard Miles exclaim, “Yummy!”

Then I threw up a little in my mouth.

    And I just got a visual of my favorite cartoon of two squirrels roasting their acorns over an open campfire, and one acorn falls in, “It’s always fun and games, until someone loses a nut.”

    Unhappily, boogers are on our daily menu these days.

  5. Mrs. Schmitty says:

    OMG, I’m peeing my pants right now. That was hilarious!

  12. Jennifer says:

    You know they say they taste sweet! EWWW.

  13. peepnroosmon says:

    Gross! But, Roo has just started picking his nose the other day. I know it’s just a matter of time until he pops one in his mouth.

  14. Holli Smith says:

    OOOOO!! Better your kid than mine!! HAHAHAHA

  15. obabe says:

    I found my 18 month old, who had been rummaging through one of the small drawers on his changing table this morning, sucking on our last remaining (hospital grade green- best ones ever). It promptly got tossed into the garbage, but I too, threw up in my mouth a little.

  16. meritt says:


    Vomit discolors carpet and mine is white.

  17. Fold My Laundry Please says:

    As my three year old would say, “Ewwww! ‘Gusting!”

  18. julie says:

    “Nummy!!” is one of those words that bring me running from the other room faster than “oops” or “uh-oh.” Very very rarely does “Nummy” even remotely apply.

  19. Nicki says:

    fighting the vomit back down!!!

  20. Carrie says:

    So Gross, but OMG so funny!

  21. becky says:

    HA HA HA HA!!!!!! LOVE THIS!

  23. Sheen the "Cheeriobutt" says:

    Ha ha ha! I guess there’s always the reason to be thankful that he didn’t come and stick it in your mouth after his rounds! Oh, I wanted to tell you that I have moved into an older house now that I will be renovating also. Perhaps I can get some ideas from you. Stop by and check it out!

  24. liz says:

    Hilarious. And nauseating.

  25. Tonya says:

    Is it bad that I was only mildly disgusted by this post? After being a mother to a 3 and a 1 year old, almost nothing turns my stomach anymore :)

  26. emilyhope says:

    Oh, I remember the days of the booger sucker. Nothing about it can gross me out! LOL!

  27. theotherbear says:

    Oh wow. I really DID have vomit come up in my mouth. I also laughed at the same time so now I feel totally confused at myself.

  28. Heather B. says:

    Ok ewww, I just threw up in my mouth a bit as well.

  29. fidget says:

    Should I be embarrassed that this didnt even make me wince?

    I’m raising a flock of booger eaters and it just doesnt bother me anymore. Mostly i think because ive caught them eating EACH OTHERS boogers before..

  30. Tara says:

    Just too funny.

    My ds is a nose picker.

    Once while in the car he announce “Boogie!! A BIG one”

    Picture mum frantically looking for a tissue… til… “YUM!”

  31. elizabeth says:

    LMAO - oh I needed that. To hear it, not experience it - HAHA!

  32. Tara says:

    Oh my word! That is hilarious. I loved the part about him taking care of his siblings. Just hilarious! LOL LOL LOL. We are in the “baby snot sucker” phase here since Avery is 11 weeks old. Her older brother likes to chew on the end. Since I’m too cheap to go buy a new one, she gets one that has teeth marks on it. Poor 4th child.

  33. Jenny says:

    That is too funny. I can’t even think of anything witty to say in reply…all I can do is continue to chuckle. Thanks for sharing.

  34. CathyC says:

    Oh My Goodness!!! You’ll have to “remind” him of this story every year at every holiday dinner. You know, so he won’t forget.

  35. Darren McLikeshimself says:

    He’s so funny!

  36. Melanie says:

    Oh, eeeewwww, why are kids so gross? Mine will pick his nose, look at you, then stuff his finger into his mouth and laugh. And he’s 5. He can READ. How can you be so smart and so gross all at once?

  37. Christine says:

    OMG!!! hahahahahahahahaha!!
