I Will Not Pick My Nose Today

Call me crazy or weird or strange, but just because all kids do it doesn't mean I have to like it. . . or accept it!

Just before bed this evening, as I was laying with Th talking about the upcoming week, he casually mentioned to me that every morning, upon entering his class, he tells his teacher he will not pick his nose. He said he didn't like telling her that because he wanted to pick his nose. I tried my best to not even hint at a smile because he was very serious as he told me this. In a controlled voice I simply explained that nose picking is not socially acceptable nor appropriate, and more importantly, germs live in noses; he could get sick from picking his nose and then doing what most kids do (I'll refrain from continuing, but if you don't know to what I am referring, spend a few minutes kidwatching and you'll quickly figure it out!) He agreed and said he'd try his best not to pick his nose tomorrow at school.

I hope he's able to control himself and his pickin' finger.
