Unfortunate Occasions When Toddlers Will Always Pick Their Noses

Maybe you don't spend much time around small children. Or maybe your oldest child is still a baby and you haven't yet witnessed him doing something really disgusting that wasn't involuntary. Or maybe your kids are grown, and you've completely blocked out their nose-picking phase.

In any case, I hate to be the bearer of bad news if you didn't already know this, but toddlers pick their noses at really unfortunate times.

I don't mean to imply that there's a really great time for toddlers to pick their noses, but let's face it - it's going to happen, and there are certain times when it's more gross, less convenient and more aggravating than usual. Such as...

21 times when kids will always pick their noses by Robyn Welling @RobynHTV

  1. In group photos
  2. While using a touch-screen device
  3. While sharing a touch-screen device with you
  4. Formal occasions
  5. Really, any time they're dressed up
  6. At a playdate with a new friend
  7. At a playdate with a new friend whose mom you're trying to impress
  8. When you see it happening across the library but it's too late to stop them and you can't yell because it's the library
  9. When they're (FINALLY) sharing their toys (FOR ONCE)
  10. Immediately after washing their hands
  11. Immediately before offering you a handful of Goldfish
  12. During an introduction to your new boss
  13. When there's nowhere to wipe their fingers off
  14. When that makes you the only place to wipe their fingers off
  15. Right before a meal
  16. Right in the middle of a meal
  17. In the car, when you can see them wiping it on their car seat but they just pretend like they can't hear you telling them to stop
  18. During a lecture about nose picking
  19. In bed
  20. Secretly in bed, so you don't find out about it until it's time to change the sheets
  21. While they're ignoring the fact that you're currently in the process of trying to hand them a tissue
Luckily, the nose-picking phase doesn't last forever.

Well, that's a lie - for some people it does last forever. So then, I guess the good news is that, if your child ends up being a forever-nose-picker, at least you won't always be the one he uses as a tissue.
