Toddler nose picking...gag gag gag

Hey parents I really want to know what you did to convince your child to not pick their nose and eat it... GAG!!!

Funny thing is my husband can handle throw up and dirty diapers but if he sees snot or boogers he is gagging.  It is quite humorous.  Well, as you can imagine with a 3 year old they are going to be curious and pick.  Selah has been picking her nose for a few months now and eating them.

I have explained how they can make you sick, how they are gross, ignored it so she has no attention from it, but she continues to do it.  In fact if I tell her no she hides her face with one hand and uses the other hand to finish the job.


We have read the book "No David" several times and one of the lines in the book says "No David" well I added on the page with him picking his nose is "thats gross."  Selah and I have read that book so much that she can now read it to me.  I was hoping she would realize it was gross, but it seems she keeps doing it.

So parents how did you get your kid to kick this nasty habit in the butt!  Cause I am going crazy with this one... it is really just one of those things that gives me a chill in my back.

I agree that it is gross; we smacked our sons hands whenever we caught his fingers in his nose. We would also make him wash his hands right away. He likes washing his hands, but doesn't always like being interrupted if he is doing something he enjoys. This has all worked for the most part, but our oldest is 5yo now and we still catch him picking boogers, although we'll have him gargle some watered down Listerine if we catch him eating them.
We have smacked her hands too and made her wash them! She also enjoys washing her hands!

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
