to wish my daughter would not pick her nose and wipe the snot on my lip?

you get the jist of it from the subject. she does it and then says "share". this is a very strange sense of generosity. she is 21 months old.

Not at all. My 2.5 year old runs up to me for what I thinks is a hug and wipes her snotty nose on my arm or leg - I hate it but can't seem to get through to her about it!

Nevercan good to hear i'm not the only one. my daughter seems to think she is being really kind and looks really offended by the fact i don't say "Ta" to thank her for her generosity. don't want to hurt her feelings but don't really want her to try this form of "sharing" at nursery either

Both my boys do that. They don't wipe it on me all the time, but enough to be disgusting!

DD gives me the great pleasure of letting me pick her nose, I have to roll it, then flick it, BUT not before she has inspected the contents

i have tbh i used to love picking her nose when she was a newborn and i could get those lovely, thick, sometimes a bit crusty bogies (we all do it and love it!). but i didn't want to practically eat them! plus toddler snot is a different matter!
