A few nights ago V found his way in to our bed in the middle of the night. Yes, we’re still dealing with that issue, although not nearly as often thank goodness! It wasn’t until the next day that I was having dinner with my girlfriends that I remembered something that occurred in the middle of the night.

At some point, V woke me up from a hard sleep to inform me that he had “nose picky” on his finger. That finger, pointed about two inches from my face, displayed quite a large booger on it. I took it from him, disposed of it in a Kleenex next to my bed, and less than 30 seconds later we were both fast asleep again.

Remembering this incident over dinner caused a discussion to break out regarding kids and boogers. One girlfriend shared that her son had a habit of waking up in the middle of the night, picking his nose, and wiping the boogers on the wall. Another friend chimed in that her son did the same thing. Both commented on how difficult it was to remove dried nose boogies from a wall … practically requiring a putty knife and sometimes removing paint in the process. I laughed and quietly thank God that I’ve yet to experience that.

Did I mention that this conversation with the girls took place LAST NIGHT?

So guess what V proudly pointed out to me this morning when I went in to his bedroom. That’s right … “nose pickies on the wall”. The kid’s timing is un.be.lieve.able.
