We've been fighting a stomach bug in our house.  As with most illnesses we share, it seems to have been brought home by the youngest member.

This exchange happened recently:

Me: Trying to explain to child various acts of hygiene she can perform to help everybody in the family stay healthy.
Child: Picking and eating boogers while nodding.
Me: Freaking out.

In reality, the conversation ended up having some positive benefit.  The child has been more diligent about washing her hands and not picking her nose.
