Raindrops on Roses and Boogers on Bedsheets

The night after Christmas, as I was toweling off Baby from his bath, Hubby yelled in to me from the boyz' bedroom.

"Uh, Sarah?  I think you need to change the sheets on the beds."

Crap, I thought.  Someone had probably either peed or puked.

I entered the bedroom.  "Why?  What's up?"

Hubby pointed.  To the side of Middle's bed.

Where lined up in a row were boogers of all shapes (and colors).

Dried, crusty, crunchy boogers.

That Middle had been depositing there for quiiiiite some time.  (Let's just say there were more than 10.)

(You can thank me for sparing you a visual image.)

Seems we discovered his booger collection.

Um, how often do you change your childrens' bedsheets? 

Because I'm not doing it often enough.  Apparently.

That's so gross...and funny at the same time.

Vodka Logic said...

very gross.. I was a once a week bed changer but now they are old enough to change them on their own.. I can't say as I know tbh.

Jenn@ The Crazies said...

Yea... funny and gross... I obviously dont change my kids beds enough... once every 2 weeks really, think I should maybe increase that to once a week???

Michelle said...

Ewwww. But yeah, my 4yr old likes to do the same thing on his sheets (why oh why?). I try to wash them every 2 weeks, unless of course he is sick or has an accident.

Mrs. Fabulous said...

HAAAAA!!! My little brother used to do that when I was growing up. Of course, he's 27 now. I hope he has moved on to collecting something different now a days! :)

Jen said...

Now that's funny. And trust me when I say that I don't change my kid's sheets enough either.

marlynn said...

oh gross!!! funny, but eww :) I am now going to go look at my kids' bedsheets...I admittedly do not change them as much as I probably should!

Ms. Wanda said...

Wow, mine leaves splashes of dried saliva everywhere, but buggers, wow! LOL:)

I posted my top 5 events over the last decade, I'd love to hear yours:)

Happy New Years!!!

Yowzah! Gee, I'm speechless here.
Happy New Year to the Trenches, boogies and all.

And this is why we're soul sisters.

If it makes you feel better, we found a booger collection of sorts on the wall beside the bed. And if you think I change my boys' sheets often enough, you obviously don't know me as well as I think you do. Many times the boys just rip off their sheets and sleep without them. Don't ask me why.

Thanks for keeping it real, girl! (And BlissDom, baby, can't wait!!!)

This is why I have to clean my kid's sheets once per week. Otherwise who knows what'll be growing on them?

Happy New Year!

Judy said...

ew. Yucko!

I aim for every other week, right before the housekeeper (YAY) shows up, but many times it is once a week or more frequent, largely due to the sleepover influx we seem to have around here.

I will not incriminate myself by sharing how often children's sheets are changed. I will let you know I found my son's booger collection behind the couch cushion today....

Putting the FUN in DysFUNctional said...

Um. You're s'posed to change those things?

Maureen said...

Oh, ick.

They get changed every other week - more if needed. My daughter's crib sheet is usually dirtier than my son's, although I haven't seen any collections of late.

Now, I gotta get that image out of my head!

Now I understand why Aaymee raves about you - you are hilarious!
Visiting from Serintyville; drop by my place to see my son's first drum set.

Angella said...

Oh, NO. Thank you for not taking a photo. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Stopping by from SITS and wishing you a happy monday!!!!

Mary K Brennan said...

I'm sure if I looked hard enough, I would find the same thing.
Once I threatened to throw the children in the washer with their sheets. Things seemed to calm down after that.

I'm all into the visual - wish you took a visual! Stopping by from SITS - great to connect! I, too, have 3 boys -- and 1 girl! I'm laughing b/c you call your youngest (still) the baby... and he's 4. I am certain I'll do the same (call him the baby), regardless of how old he is!

Really enjoy your blog! I just started one, and it's been a ride!
Please visit me!

Cheers! Kat
