Had to give my 11 year old a stern talking to earlier 'cos when I was making her bed I found a load of bogey's just wiped on the wall - grubby bugger must lie there reading her book and picking her nose!

Told her that she had to clean them off bare handed as that's how they got on there (she requested baby wipes and I refused point blank) and put them all in toilet paper and that if she didn't do it immediately I'd use them as pizza topping in the future and tell her after she'd eaten it. Also added that if I catch ANY snot on the wall in the future I'll do the pizza topping 'thing'.

Inside I was cracking up as she was completely horrified and promising to never EVER do it again.

Walked away after that conversation with a proper swagger - that's parenting Eye-wink

shamefully I remember doing this and getting caught for it when I was about the same age. Bogeys all over the wall behind my bed. Crusted and dry. Truly foul

I heard this was just a myth…. until mine turned two.

There are no tips. Just counting the days until she’s 18.

Having said that, this is the hair she’s working with:

Ubercool barnet that Fudge, I have a two year old and she is an absolute menace but the apple of my eye.

Back on the chipper (not so young) chaps topic, just done 90 mins up at St Georges park in a work football match vs another divison of our company and smashed them. Family aside, nothing comes close to the anticipation in the changing rooms pre big game then the buzz on the pitch. I coach my sons team now so stopped playing 11 a side on a weekend but I can honestly say of all the things I've given up over the years this is the one I miss the most
