Really, is it THAT different from him drinking milk my body produced?

I'm going to warn you. This post is really gross. If you are easily disgusted, stop now.

I was sitting on the couch last night holding Zoodle; I'd just nursed him. I saw a little piece of food on him and figured it was a crumb from the pita chip I'd eaten a few minutes before. Too lazy to throw it away, I put it in my mouth.

"Hmm," I thought, "That's pretty salty for such a small piece."

A second later my food radar told me something was wrong. The little bite didn't taste bad; it was just very salty, with an un-pita-like texture. I took the morsel out of my mouth.

I looked at it more closely.

And I quickly identified a baby booger.

Hey, I did warn you.

Do you think it would've been good with hummus?

Trace said...

Beth, that is hilarious! (Not much grosses me out, being in a house full of boys, you know!)

Rebecca said...

I thought that you were going to say that it was dried up breast milk! I guess you learned your lesson, huh? :o)

C. Beth said...

Ares--Ha, and EW!

Rosewood--Yeah, with little ones we do cut corners to save time, don't we? Congrats on your newborn!

Embee--Pretty much sums up what I thought of it!

ee'sphotoboy--Wise words!

Kerri--No problem; it's worth it to share my unglamorous mommy moments if it makes other moms laugh. :)

Jonno--Yeah, pretty awful, huh?

Mike--If you search online you can still find lots of info of people who recommend urine to help with all sorts of ills. I don't remember why I know this....

Becki--Ewww!

Trace--Hey, great to see you! Yeah, you must have a high threshold for gross-ness in your house. :)

Rebecca--Oh, dried up breast milk would have been FAR better!

Sam said...

You wrote in my blog that you have a grumpy baby. No wonder Zoodle was grumpy, having to eat that stuff recycled!

Dad

I don't know, Dad, if he's a typical kid he may consider boogers a delicacy. :)

And, really, I was surprised how un-gross it tasted. Though I'm feeling a little nauseous remembering it....

The joys of being a Mom!

Monica said...

That was awesome. Booger isn't so bad when you consider what it could have been. As a mother of four boys, I know. *shudder*

Been there and done that!

James Baker said...

Lol oh dear. No, I haven't done that cuz I don't have a baby, just a cat haha. But Gee... I am a bit germ phobic hahahah.

Anyways hello =)

My name is J.R. Baker and I am a student (and a teacher) currently working on my PhD in Australia. I'm doing research on blogging and social networking, and was wondering if you could use your blog to alert people to my research? I've done previous research in the area which can be seen on my blogspot page. I'm trying to get a number of bloggers with varied interests and content on their pages to participate in the research.

I need a fair number of participants for the study, and so far I haven't had an easy time getting participants. My final thesis length should be around 400 pages so I'm desperate to get participants now so I don't have to cram writing up the thesis into the last few months of the degree.

I would really appreciate it if you could share my research with your readers, or even better participate in it yourself. I found your blog because it is one of the noteworthy blogs at the minute which is most excellent.

The link to the study for bloggers is http://onlinesocialresearch.com/ and the survey takes 15-20 minutes to fill out.

Don't worry if you don't want to pass it on or participate, but thanks very much if you do!

Cheers,

J.R.

*snort* Thanks for the laugh!

That was gross!

But yes, it was a great read!

Reading this I actually felt like throwing out whatever nothingness existed in my mouth. But with a sister with an infant, I have seen first hand that this is far from the other disgusting things that people around kids consider quite normal.

Great post!:)
