Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

Picking Your Nose

O.k. first of all I am not even sure if I should be blogging about this because I don't want to embarrasses my 9 year old but it was so cute that it is something I want to remember and share with her when she is an adult.

So this is what happened. The other day it was quiet time and my two older ones were playing Wheel of Fortune. I sat on the couch and watched them play this game and laugh and act like they were the best of friends. My husband and I have really been trying to focus on having the siblings be each others best friends because we have told them that they will always have each other no matter what. And who doesn't desire to have a friend who loves you unconditionally. So as they were playing the game the nine year old kept picking her nose. I told her, "You need to quit picking your nose or you will never find a husband and you won't have any friends."

This was her response and it was very matter of fact:
Nine year old: "Mom I already have friends."

Mom: "Oh, well who are they?

Nine Year old: " E of course, and she doesn't care because she picks her nose too."
By the way E is the 11 year old.

I sat there with nothing to say but thought to myself I am so glad that these two have become each others friends, and also nose picking buddies. We must be doing something right because they definitely love each other for their good and bad qualities. I guess I better start praying harder for that man out their to be a nose picking man.

Gee, I was under the impression that all men pick their I know mine does, and I have definately seen YOURS pick his in the I think M is safe and will find the nose-picking man of her dreams someday.

That is really good. I am glad that they are so close that they feel comfortable to pick their noses in front of each other. Ha Ha. Love Tanya

HAHAHA! I love this story and your take on it! When my brother and I lived at home, he would lay in bed and pick his nose and wipe it on the wall. The wall next to his bed was bumpy with dried boogers. Hopefully he outgrew it, although I'm sure your daughters will outgrow it at a younger age than he did!
