Today I worked while my family and Mircea got to enjoy the day off at the horse races. Unfortunately it's a really foggy and dreary day, but at least they had the day off. I nannied today, it was a very very busy day. I didn't stop. I usually don't, those of you who have kids know exactly what I mean. They keep you on your toes. I watch a 5 1/2 year old as well as a 9 month old. It's tough. I always have some crazy story or thing happen. Like Tuesday, I was on my way to the park, the baby was seat belted tightly into her car seat and as always I went around to the other side of the car to seat belt the 5 1/2year old in. The car door was open and out of the corner of my eye I saw Zoe (5 1/2yrs) was holding something rather big between her thumb and index finger, I got a closer look and realized it was the nastiest booger I had ever seen so I promptly told her, "Zoe, that is disgusting you need to throw that out of this car at once". Of course she thought this was the funniest thing and started laughing and laughing. All I could think was please do not let this booger land anywhere in my car. This thing is sick. So while laughing she proceeds to flick this monstrous booger out of my car "fling" there it went, it stuck right on the inside of my door panel. I couldn't believe it. So again, Zoe laughing even harder, I told her, "this is so nasty please flick that off my car into the dirt". So she did "flick" and into the dirt it went. Finally, we were able to make our way to the park after a two attempts at flicking 5 1/2 year old boogers. These are the things I get paid for.
