Just in case you were wavering..

So just in case you are not a parent here is reason number 2,658 for why you should become one. (If you are a parent then count this as another blessing to your everyday life.)

Today while sitting in our office catching up on Desperate Housewives on ABC.com my 3 year old daughter came in holding up her index finger. Here is the conversation that ensued.

The Girl: “Mommy! This is on my finger and I DON’T LIKE IT!”

Me: (looking at her index finger) “Um, what exactly is that?”

The Girl: “It came from my nose!”

Me: (looking a bit closer) “A, is that a booger on your finger?”

The Girl: “Yes! And I don’t like it so please take it off!”

(Upon further inspection, said booger takes up the whole top of her finger tip.)

Me: “Yeah, I don’t think so. Why don’t you go get a tissue and take it off yourself?”

The Girl: (Thinks for a moment,) “Oh, that’s a good idea Mommy! You’re smart!”

(Off she runs)

So, now you are wondering what exactly is reason 2,658.. Well duh! In what other profession could you dodge bullets of having to wipe off boogers the size of a pencil eraser?? There is no greater satisfaction really.. 🙂
