Digging for gold

Anna has always had a bit of a fasination with her nose. It was the first body part she learned to idenitfy on her own. It was the first one she said. It's just a cool little thing.
Since the begininng of school we have had a long string of colds. We just barely get well from one, and we are knocked flat again. I lost count somewhere around 5. 5 colds in two months. Let's just say I am sick of being sick.
All of this sickness has brought a new level of fun to Anna's life. Not only is the nose fun to say and touch; you can reach up in there and get stuff out. There is a certain threshold of yuck for every mother. For some it's poo or puke. For me it's removal of things from your nostril with your finger. Anna has me all figured out too. That kid digs and digs up there. And I didn't even realize just how much she does it until I downloaded the pictures from my camera the other day.
I didn't take a single one of purpose. But here they are staring at me. ICK!!!
That look of concentration on her face. What does she think she will find up there anyway?
Just gross. I have to go wash my hands.

eeeewwww! I hate that too. What I find worse are those mothers who wipe their children's noses with their own fingers. Disgusting!

I know you won't do that.
