Now, I have been to my share of one year old birthdays, dinners out and dinners in. I also have been around during snack times and desert times.
And now wherever I am, my son is with me too.
So what is my point?
During those times mentioned above, there will always be someone with oily hands or sweet laden hands or oily mouth or sweet laden mouth....and somehow someone of such stature will be bending dow to kiss my son on the cheek! Or smearing their oily/sweet hands on my kid's 'so-adorable-can't-wait-to-pinch-you' face!
And I will exclaim (not shout!) if I see them (to heck with their feelings now!) "Can you PLEASE wash your mouth/hands BEFORE touching the baby!"
And if they don't back away, I will bore them some more with "if he gets a pimple, it is all your fault". Usually this gets them far far away. But thankfully I have never needed to use this second threat very often!
But despite all the times it has happened....my son has survived without a zit so far!
Sigh....I think I should not be saying this. So far everytime I say something good about him, he does the opposite or the opposite happens!
Maybe it is my furious wiping him down after we come back from an 'event' that has helped somehow. But really....do babies get zits? Or are they really ALL hormon related, aggraveted only by dirt?
