Would you like Parm with that?

Phoenix is eating a slice of kraft cheese off the kitchen floor and sprinkling parm on it. I can't remember the last time I actually washed the floor...I know it was in the last two weeks...but this might put me up for "Mother of the Year". Not.

I'm picking my battles. He doesn't want a plate, and I figure nothing on the floor will actually kill him. So, rock on my child. Rock on.

What kinds of things do your children do that some others would frown upon? I can't be the only one.

You know, I let the kids outside barefoot in the rain. Don't you remember when you were a kid and did that? It was so great. Now, parents are so overprotective they forget to let kids be kids. I hear you!

Let's see...also I don't make the kids wash their hands like I should...there are time's it's really gross!

I let them eat raw dough. It's good. No tapeworms so far!

Eating cheese on the floor is not that bad. Now, if you were doing it, I'd wonder! ;)

For his naptime, I let my 1.5 year old take his sippy cup to bed..shock..with milk!! Ohhh the hooorrroorrr! And? Most of the time? My kids don't eat with a spoon or fork (even tho it is offered at every meal) and I could really care less!

Hmmm, so far I do/don't do all the things that you and the previous commenters said (other than the sippy cup at nap time but that's only because my girls don't take naps anymore). My kids eat off the floor all the time sometimes I try to stop them but usually it just isn't worth the battle to keep them from eating the candy they had dropped 2 days ago. I also let them eat raw hot dogs which some say is a big no-no.

My kids seems to like boogers and no matter how much I try to tell them how gross that is they won't stop. Brianna has also put her dinner plate on the floor for the dog to finish (I know some of you think that is gross enough) but then as the dog is eating she'll start eating food off the plate with the dog. I've tried stopping that also with no luck. Oh well!

My two year old decided this week he will not use his hands to eat food. I mean AT ALL. No spoon, no fork, no fingers. Instead he just leans forward and takes bites like a horse delicately munching on a fallen apple (my muffins) or a pig eating slops (my stew). I know next stop is a trough...

I let Alex pull each and everything out of my cupboards while I sit on my butt. Momma's tired.
