I need to tell you something

So SE came up to me last week with a completely crestfallen face.

I have something to tell you

SE:  Mummy, I need to tell you something
Me:  What?  *feeling uneasy at her body language

SE:  I think I need to go to the hospital
Me:  Hmm?  Why?  *uneasiness getting worse

SE:   Because, because I ate booger today *her face crumples and she starts to cry
Me:  Err eat what? ("booger" or that stuff from the nose is not a word we normally use)

SE:  Eat booger... waahhhhh
Me:  Who told you eat booger need to go to the hospital??

Aiyo hahaha.  I'm so relieved and tickled at the same time, and quickly snapped this photo.

From later conversations, this must have came from my maid telling her that if she eats dirty things, worms will grow in her stomach.  Hence she thought she had a serious problem after eating booger.


  1. aiyo, this mommy still have the heart to snap a photo when the poor little girl thought she needs to go to the hospital. she is so smart to know the word booger. i just call those stuffs bei si, hahahaha!

    1. Haha must capture the moment! I was relieved already and laughing at that point.

      Ya I didn't know 'booger' until much later in life hehe.

  2. erh but why did she eat them? did you ask her?

    1. Well she was thinking have to go hospital so how to ask?? Hahaha. Guess she was curious.

  3. So the main question - why did she eat it in the first place? ;-)

    1. Must be curiosity. I made sure to ask her whether it tasted nice and she shook her head, so hopefully no more eating of this!

  4. ya I was also wondering why did she eat it?? hahaha..
