I read this article in on parenting.com titled ‘ How gross is it? Your germiest situations analyzed’ that involved asking the experts about the gross things that your kids do and how scientifically gross they really are.
I was a little surprised if I’m honest. Up there on the dirtiest things were:
- Public sand pits, which have been likened to dirty cat litter trays
- Restaurant high chairs
- And using your own mouth to clean your babies yummy.
Apparently these are all much dirtier than poopey in the bath, a dog licking a childs face (apparently dog lick is not as bad as human lick – although we don’t lick or own balls or bums).
I am suitably relieved because babe has pooped in the bath quite a few times over the last year and she loves having her hands licked by dogs. In fact every time she seems a dog she holds her hands out under their mouth and nose, hoping to be slobbered upon – I’d deny that she’s her mothers daughter, but I got myself quite a bad little reputation when I was small.
