Today, while shopping in the grocery store, Ellerie decided to open up one of the freezer doors. Who knows how many germs were on that handle, but what she did next really made me cringe. My precious little devil pressed her silly face up to that cold freezer door, and then she proceeded . . . to lick it.
No, I am not joking.
Yes, I wanted to run to aisle 5, grab some Chlorox, and disinfect her tongue right there.
In fact, I almost knocked over an old lady in my rush to grab my little imp to get her tongue off of that germ infested door.
What possesses little kids to taste everything? You may remember that E did something similar when he was a bit younger. At least El's licking choice was a cool door. E's was a car bumper.
On a positive note, not only do things like this make my day to day life a little more interesting, they are also great birth control.
