Raising Boys - The Disgusting and the Even More Disgusting


Boys are gross. And dirty. And usually, the stuff that they think is hysterical is beyond me.

Their jokes revolve around bodily functions, they like to look at the baby’s dirty diapers, and while they refuse to eat a vegetable, they will put a cracker that they dropped in a mud puddle into their mouths without a second thought.

I am constantly shaking my head in wonder. And often in disgust as well.

Lately, the big boys have been passing gas like it’s their job. They’ve made it a contest to see who can toot the loudest and the longest. I am completely bewildered by it.

Thankfully, though, in the past few months they’ve moved away from what I considered to be the most offensive and disgusting “game” they’d come up with. You can read about it on my personal blog if you’re so inclined. I’m not sure if they stopped because they realized how gross it really was, or if they got tired of my shrieking at them when I caught them doing it. Honestly, I don’t really care, I’m just happy they stopped.

And yes, I realize that boys don’t have a corner on the gross market. Girls can be pretty nasty, too.

So tell me, what’s the most disgusting thing your kid has ever done?
