As a mother, there are many things you end up dealing with that are just gross. Like sucking the snot out of your congested baby, getting poop on your hands when you change a diaper, or cleaning up barf with milk and cheese in it, or almost licking a smear you thought was avocado. I’ve dealt with all those things and never complained.
Today, I’ve experienced something that tops the gross-ness chart!
I was trying to put Joshua down for a nap this afternoon and I ended up falling asleep before him. I woke up a few minutes later because Joshua had his right index finger in my mouth, poking around and picking at my gum. I pulled his hand out of my mouth and turned my head away from his evil deeds. Then I felt something in my mouth, like a small piece of food partical or something. I thought maybe Joshua had stuck some chewed-on food in my mouth. That would have been gross, but not THAT bad on the gross-ness scale.
I used my thumb and index finger to fish out the small partical. When I saw what it was, I almost couldn’t believe my eyes.
It was a giant piece of snot.
Joshua had picked his nose and stuck his snot in my mouth!
I almost died.
