I worry about my children

So last nite Alec is making more Crystal Lite. He's making a big ol jug that he's gonna bring to the table for dinner. I look up and he is stirring it with a pair of scissors. SCISSORS! Gross.
We were like, "Why are you using scissors? Who knows where they've been??"
and he says "They were sitting by the sink so I thought they were clean... what else am I suppose to use?"
"How bout a spoon out of the drawer FULL OF SPOONS!!"
"But those are all clean..."

'Eh? Makes me really glad I just drink my Diet DP...
-------------------------
Isabel was cleaning the table off. Now I'm not a big fan of sponges. I use paper towels like there's no tomorrow because you can throw them away and you aren't carrying germs from one place to the next. Izzy just made me hate sponges more. Last nite she's wiping off the table when she took the sponge, SQUEEZED THE DIRTY WATER OUT OF IT ONTO THE MIDDLE OF THE TABLE, then used that water to wipe the table with.

Who are these children??

I hate sponges too! I like paper towels for cleaning unless I have to scrub something I use a Dobie. It's the best scrubby sponge like thing. It scours without scratching!

EEwwww! Dirty water on the table? I think I just threw up a little in my mouth. Paper Towels are the way to go. When I do use a sponge, for scrubbing something, I spray Clorox Cleanup on it and wash it in the dishwasher to kill the germs when I'm done with it. Or if there isn't time for that, I'll microwave it 'till it's dry. The heat kills the germs.

I guess clean is all relative???!! Those are the best stories!! What's so great is it disgusts us, it's normal for them.

NOOOO! NOT THE SPONGE!

I have finally (I hope, I keep my fingers crossed and my whip ready) trained my family to NOT use my sponge -which is solely for dihes and must remain super clean at all times- for any surfaces or wiping of anything. What the hey Twin?

:) Kids

It's paper towels or the Lysol or Clorox wipes around here. It's just part of my germophobia issues ;)

Scissor to mix Crystal light. Hmm. Very creative. I never would of thought of that. Especially with a drawer full of clean spoons (which I started to type as a spoon full of clean drawers- doh!)

Suzanne said...

LOL! I don't think we even own a sponge for that reason! And the scissors?!? Well...at least they're trying, right? :D

I didn't have your e-mail address. Will you join Glenn Beck's national movement We Surround Them?

It's to let the politicians that are crapping all over our Constitution know that there are more of us than there are of them. Glenn laid out 9 basic principles and 12 values. He's only asking that you agree with at least 7 of the 9 and then join him and others in unifying in a show of solidarity against our elected leaders.

This is not a Dem vs. Repub. thing. It's an American common sense thing that transcends political parties.

There's meet-up parties happening all over Texas on Friday afternoon. :0

Gross... My kids do the same kind of stuff though... sometimes they just don't get it! lol

Mikelene said...

I'm with Klin: paper towels or Clorox wipes. We go through an insane # of paper towels! No sponges in the house.
Scissors? Wow. Did any one actually drink the Crystal Light?

Whitney said...

Ha ha...my jaw dropped. How funny!!! I am a paper towel user, too. Even mopping the floor, I'd rather go through a ton of paper towels and do it on my hands and knees. And heaven forbid you use clean spoons :) ha ha

Oh my! Insanity! And they wonder why kids get sick more than adults. Lol!
