Nothing like looking over and seeing that your daughter has spit up on the tile and is now licking/sucking it up. Gross.
Here's my reply:
Yeah. That's gross. Here are some more activities you can look
- Your daughter wandering up to you with a half-eaten hard piece of penne pasta that she clearly picked up the kitchen floor the morning after it was part of her dinner. The half-eaten part has soft ends, so you know the bites are recent.
- Your daughter down on all fours, licking the carpet where there are pieces of popcorn left over from her afternoon snack. Nevermind that the carpet hasn't been vacuumed in a couple days and the dog has been traipsing all over it.
- Your daughter drooling because her mouth is so full-- with the hard, small bites dog food your son fed her that day.
- Your son picking up the dog water dish and tipping it into his mouth, just like you taught him to do with the leftover milk in the breakfast cereal bowl.
- Your child leaned over into the toilet (yes, you read the right), lapping up the water (at least it was post-flushing).
- Your child licking up the dirty, bubble-bathy water as it drains out of the tub.
Licking up spit up is gross, but at least it's not full-blown vomit, right?
I must admit, though, I've had four years to collect these stories. So it's not as bad as the list may make it look!
