wordless{ish} wednesday: not mom of the year.

before ya'll start thinking those "no wonder your kid is sick" thoughts, i did wipe down the handle with a clorox wipe upon entering the store.  that makes this not so bad, right?  RIGHT?

  1. Spencer does the same thing. Interestingly, he just got over a cold... But if he doesn't lick the cart, he just licks random canned goods.

  3. Ha ha! You are just building up his immunity for when he gets older. Dustyn used to do this.

  8. My son did the same thing one time, in Costco. I could have thrown up thinking about the germs that could have gotten in his mouth. BUT I was even more "Mother of the Year" material then you ;), I hadn't wiped down the handle! He was way older then Parker, so why in the world would I have thought he'd randomly lick the cart!??!?! :)

  9. hahaha. i always look at the wipes they have at the grocery store and think, "you know, i really ought to use one of those." i think now i might have to start.

    i just love that you stopped to take a picture of it.

  11. if you wiprd down the cart that totally makes you mom of the year. and btw, I was at Target yesterday and Charlie was totally chomping on the cart, and this lady came over to tell me that that was "dirty". um, really? ; )

  12. LOL let's be honest...kids are just going to do that. And it'll build up their immunity. Kids that don't come in contact with any sort of nastiness are likely to get more sick. Of course, that's coming from a non-parent but I read a lot...does that count. :)

  13. Yah... I don't stress over that kind of stuff. You can't keep them from getting sick no matter what you do. I try, I try.
    Love the pic!

  18. OMG, that is awesome! Reminds me of the series I have of my older daughter eating dog kibble - isn't it funny how we don't put down the camera long enough to stop them...

  19. That is way too funny! Seriously. His expression is KILLING me.

    ReplyDelete
  20. So funny! This is definitely a picture you will want to save to show him when he is older. :)

  21. haha! Love that expression on Parker!

    ReplyDelete
  22. At least you wipe it, I never think to and my kid SUCKS on that thing. Yum.

    ReplyDelete
  23. yea, stella does that on a daily outing basis.
    um, could his expression be anymore priceless as he goes in for the kill?!

    ReplyDelete
  24. It seriously makes no difference what you do, babes dig cart handles! Kids just have to gnaw on those shiny, rubbery-looking doo-dads. You're an awesome mama, this is so not a fail :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh my goodness, this picture had me laughing so much!
    It's too cute.
    Don't feel bad, Adrienne tries and sometimes succeeds at doing the very same thing whenever we venture out.

    We usually take a large blanket with us and wrap it all around the cart, so she can't put her mouth on any of it.

    But hey, I'm sure all little kids do that and as long as you wiped it off then you shouldn't worry.
    Germs are always lurking around unfortunately.

  36. Let's just hope the next mom to use this cart wipes it down. Elijah likes to lick shoes. I'm not sure which is worse!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm just wondering if you always take your DSLR grocery shopping?!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Funny!

    By the time you have another kid, you'll be hoping he or she likes to lick the cart, that way you can shop in peace until your oldest announces he has to pee... =)

  39. I do wonder if our children get sick so much is because of all the anti-bacterial items on the market. Our bodies have to build a resistance to bacteria and the only way to do that is to be exposed to it repeatedly.

  40. this is highly hilarious. makes me want to hug you.
