Little Mother is grubby. She loves purses, accessorizing, brand name clothes, beautiful fabrics and style, but she is a little dirt ball. Because she sucks her sticky dirty thumb, she is usually the first to bring an illness for all of us to share and enjoy.
I had the after school snack ready to go in 3 Styrofoam bowls. The timer was set for 8 minutes to bring focus to little ones who want to snack till dinner time. "Oh we've GOT to wash our hands. Have you washed your hands Sunshine?" They proceeded into the bathroom as I watched in amazement. "Have you heard of tapeworms?" she quietly asked her sister. "They are THIS big and LIVE in your intestines! I learned about them in school today. This guy keeps a whole bunch of them in a bottle and brought them in." They scrubbed under their fingernails and up their arms.
I for one go on record as fully supporting the study and examination of tapeworms. I look forward to a healthier new year. Please accept this humble post as my contribution to the cleanliness of children everywhere. Love You!!!
