#Microblog Monday- Get Those Out Of Your Mouth

Olea is 2 months old now and starting to interact with her world. So I unpacked all the infant toys I had in the closet and carefully washed them in hot water and soap.

I wouldn't want her to touch any toys that were dirty or not sterile.

What I didn't count on is that Frostina was absolutely fascinated at seeing her old toys again. And by fascinated, I mean obsessed.

She couldn't wait until they dried. She kept going back into the bathroom asking if they were clean yet.

Finally they were. And I carefully laid them on Olea's play mat.

Seconds later I witnessed Frostina putting each of them in her mouth.

One by one, side by side, each toy, each angle, everything became covered in her slobber and her germs.



  1. yep... believe me... give up! wait until Frostina goes and kisses Olea with the nose that you probably know very well!!

  2. Oy... It's almost as if kids hear a clear radio signal of what we DON'T want them to do and do exactly that...

    She's marking her territory?

  4. lol. i have given up trying to stop the twins drinking from eachother's bottles or using each others spoons. not to mention the constant kisses and cheek rubs they give each other with dripping noses or sticky mouths! sigh.

  5. Yes, it is a very lost battle. My eldest made his younger brother cry because he wiped the little's nose without permission. The youngest wanted his snot back. (Boys, what can I say?!) so, when the eldest couldn't put them back (noo), because they were too moist, he helpfully provided his brother with one of his own, much drier, piece of stiff snot. Which he tried to shove up his nose. Until I realised what was going on and put a stop to it.
    This is an extreme story, but frightfully, versions of it occur more often than not. We do want them toshare, don't we? :-)

  6. My kid is now 21 months and STILL puts all the things in his mouth. It drives me nuts, but I can't stop it. Hopefully his immune system is getting tougher.

  7. I struggled hard to keep the twins away from messing each other's food and bottles and now they've become so particular that sometimes it's a pain. So you'll get there too .... One day!
