Is snottiness just a stage? Will he outgrow it? It hasn’t even been a week and I need to purchase some more tissues and I need to figure out how to dislodge eye boogers. (Advise welcome – they seem to dry into some type of superglue-like concrete).
BMs (you mom’s know – Bow Movements) have been not so frequent. I was waiting for the motherload. Yesterday we went to the new McGross, ah, I mean McDonald’s. They may be gross but they do “play area” very well, especially this new one by our house…great little toddler area. Nicholas has had no issues eating. He seems to really like eating. He ate a cheeseburger and a few fries, some juice and was off to play. It was apparent he is familiar with McDonald’s.
When it was time to go, I noticed a nasty smell; really, really nasty. I thought three kids must be in need of a diaper change but no, it was just him. When I took a peek, I almost gagged from the smell. Hey, this kid is eating regular food so it’s regular poo. It was loose looking so we were off to the bathroom. I’ve already become the “queen of wet wipes”…they are so multi-purpose (although not all that great for the superglue-cement eye boogers). I only had three left. As I am changing him, his legs are in the air and he reaches his hand right behind his little butt into the poop. GROSS. I may have yelled….okay, there was definitely yelling. He just looked at me unphased. He doesn’t talk much yet, but I think one of his first words is going to be “nasty”.
Apparently, not many people blog about snottiness and boogers because the spellchecker doesn’t recognize those words at all. Seriously, someone out there has to be discussing these serious issues related to domestic engineering and childhood development.
Did I mention that this morning, snot and crusty boogers in his hair? He had a bath last night right before bed. Shampooing is an ordeal as it is and I had to do it again this morning.
