Why hand washing is important


Here's a conversation I just had with Maggie:

Maggie
sniffing her hand and wrinkling her nose
Smell my hand

Me
P.U. Stinky. What is that?

Maggie
Shrugs

Me
Well, let's go wash your hands.

Maggie
No, that's okay. It's just cream cheese that I got off my belly.

Me
What?

Maggie
It's just stinky cause it's old. I wiped it off my belly.

Me
What?

Maggie
shrugging like I'm out of my mind
It's just, you know, some old cream cheese.

I just want to add for the record that I have not given Maggie any cream cheese in days and that I know for a fact that her belly is cream cheese-free. The source of her stink-hand remains a mystery.

I know what it is! It's belly button smegma!

I always suspect some old cream cheese from my belly when my hands smell funny. kids are cute but kind of weird, right?

So funny. You've got my mind spinning about what that was on her belly. Super funny!

oh lordy. that is funny. i had a head-scratching moment as a mother today when my uncircumsized 2.75 year old son - after several minutes of suspiciously quiet independent play - came running at me highly distraught with a penis i no longer recognized. he had pulled back the foreskin and demanded that i "fix it."

Oh, I'm laughing so hard. That poor penis! And Sarah, I just have to say, there i no way my darling little girl has smegma! No way.
