How do you break kids of that habit? It's so gross. I keep telling DS to get a tissue, get out what needs to come out and then wash his hands. Next thing I know, in goes the finger and then straight to his mouth. Eeeewww!!

I think kids just eat boggers! LOL! I am guessing they grow out of it when their friends start making fun of them! My oldest never did it.

Trinity just gets her boogies out and tries to hand it to me. That's when I go get a tissue. Hopefully she will catch on soon.

The other night when I went to say goodnight to my 3 y/o, he was handing me something. When I stuck my hand out he gave me a booger! LOL! Gross!

My 2 1/2 sticks that little finger up there when he gets really nervous.  No idea why but that's his thing.  He did pick his first boogie the other day and it totally freaked him out.  We tell him that the little green things on the Mucinex commercial are boogies so I guess he thought one of those was on his finger.  It didn't last long because the next one he got out he was rolling on the floor laughing.

Sometimes I don't think there is anything in DS's nose. It really is just a habit. When I say, "Don't pick!" He very quickly touches his finger to his tongue--like he's hiding evidence or something. Ugh.
