No Booger Pizza On The Menu, Please.

Seriously — two year old boys are disgusting.

Dis – Gus – TING.

I think I’ve mentioned before (and I know I have on Facebook) that Mr. Boy is OBSESSED with everything that comes out of his nose.

He wants to see it.  Feel it.  Smell it.  And, his favorite form of sensory exploration, taste it.

Snot.  Boogers.  Crusties.

It’s all “Yummy!“, he proclaims, licking his lips in gastronimcal pleasure.

I argue with him.  The Little Lady argues with him.  The Husband argues with him.  It doesn’t matter.  The boy argues till he is blue in the face… all things mucousy are goooooood in his book.

Which is why he asked for a Booger Pizza.

The gross thing wasn’t joking … he wanted wants a Booger Pizza.

I WUV booger pizza!“, Mr. Boy stated, bobbing his head up and down.  Turning to the Little Lady, he wrinkled his nose and squinted his eyes (as he does every time he asks a question) and asked, “Do you wike booger pizza?

That girl wasted no time to yell (in the car, mind you), “NOOO!”

“Mommy wikes booger pizza,” he assured his big sister.

I quickly glanced in the rear-view mirror: “I do NOT like booger pizza, Mr. Boy.”

Yes, you do, Mommy.  Boogers are yummy.   I want to eat ’em on my pizza…. PWEASE????

No, no, no, no, and NO.  Not this week.  Not this month.  Not Ever.

    Remind me to never join you for pizza night if Mr. Boy is around. LOL

    We’ve drank green smoothies 3 days in a row now and love ’em. My parents came over for dinner last night and my dad even liked it! (I didn’t feed them green smoothies for dinner though..)

    Your chicken link is broken- it threw your blog URL in there too. I have no idea why that happens, but I’ve had it happen too.

      Thanks for the heads up! I had forgotten to put the “http” in the url.

      And, woo hoo for smoothies!
