Amazing, and amusing, what we'll do as moms that we used to find utterly disgusting. We'll get poop on our hands while changing a diaper. And we'll talk about bowel movements with other moms more than we EVER thought possible. We'll get peed on by baby boys. We'll wipe off eye boogers with our knuckle. We'll bandage their gaping wounds without passing out from the sight of blood. We'll use our spit to wipe away crusted milk from the corners of their mouths. Nothing seems too nasty to us now. Fortunately, this stuff still freaks out younger folks.
My 8 year old daughter was holding Munchkin's arms down while I used my bare fingers to pull long, thick mucous from Munchkin's nose. The kind of boogers that resemble rubber cement.
My 8 year old daughter was totally grossed out.
And I was pleased. I figure I just took one step further in preventing teen pregnancy.
