Snot Nosed Kid

Friday I enjoyed having my niece for the afternoon. She came complete with her own amusement, as I'll show you momentarily. This newly three year old redhead is a bundle of energy, out-of-the-box fun. Every time she comes I discover new things about Dora and friends, even thought the Burgh Baby's Mom has done her best to keep me updated. Thanks so much.

This time, however, the little redhead brought something entirely different. I'm sure all of you have seen these? We gave one as a birthday gift recently, simply because they're fun for children of all ages! What I was not aware of was the potential for ick. As in the child blowing her nose into one. Ew!!!



Isn't that how it looks? Yuck and double yuck. Just looking at it I wondered what the germ potential is for these things, multiple children plastering their faces against the plastic pins, particularly during cold and flu season. Didn't keep me from doing it myself. Just, if you own one, Lysol yours occasionally, okay? You'll make Hallie happy if you do.

Until I write again ...

EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW. I love those things, but the ick factor never ever crossed my mind. Thaaaaaaaanx...

Melissa said...

LOL! I never would have even thought about that looking at it!

You truly have an interesting way of looking at things.

No, I have the trumping ICK-- my boys have learned how to--from the little Darth Maul guy-- how to make farting noises come from their noses! Now THAT's ewwwww!
Actually, this is a pretty gross thought here, but since I don't deal with snot very well, I am choosing not to really think about it.

Cute but yeah a little ick on the snot thing. LOL

Y'all know that's not really snot, right? I just loved the splatter effect. I can talk snot all day long, pick up snot rags after sick kids, but I couldn't handle a snotty pet, like a Persian or Dane. Colds come and colds go. Snotty pets are forever.

Wow - what a picture. Yes, clean it good with lysol! I love the pix of the storm from your house.
Have a great day. Ruthie

Great pic!!!

Burgh Baby's Mom said...

You are so very welcome. I like to share my pain, you know.

If they ever make that thing with Dora's face printed on it, I'm sure we'll own it. Mr. Husband never met a Dora anything he could resist. Uh huh. He's the one buying all the crap.

That reminds me of the time one of my friend's kids blew out his diaper in the ball thing at Chuck E. Cheese.
