Mommy Confessions: Totally Gross

There are just certain things my kids do that totally gross me out, no matter how much I love them!

#17 Boogers and snot make me gag every time. I wipe butts all day, I've cleaned up plenty of puke, I've gone to work with spit-up in my hair, but I just can not handle boogers. Peanut must know this because he loves to bring me nasty green boogs and announce, "Here, Mommy. I don't have anywhere to put my booger." Bleck.

#18 Two words: Raisin poop. When Peanut was an infant, a friend warned me that raisins do not come out the way they go in. At the time I thought it was a weird thing to warn a new mom. But, ewwww! He was right! It's just not fair that I give my kids healthy organic raisins as a snack and am paid back with diaper grapes.

#19 I have a high threshold for the grossness of my own children. However, I have a very active gag reflex with the grossness of other children. I have a friend (you know who you are) that has a thing with vomit. When it happens she has to tell me about it...in detail. I'm starting to gag just thinking about it. Please...if your child grosses you out, it's going to gross me out times ten.

What do your kids do that gross you out?

  1. Oh Katie I am with ya on the Boogers. Wyatt says "ohh look a boogie" and then EATS it. What the heck? How do they learn these things? I swear there is a deficiency in his diet that must be lacking if he feels the need to do that. My husband thinks its the reaction Wyatt gets from me that he LOVES. Me: "Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Wyatt DONT DO THAT! EWWWWWWWWWWW GROSSSSSSSSSS" and he giggles and walks off.


  2. I am so in agreement with the gross kid that is not ur own. I have to make people stop while i gag...ugghh! Visiting for the first time, following now!

  3. I hate watching my two year old eat certain foods like anything with ketchup on it. He gets it all over his face and it totally grosses me out.
