While reading thru the list, I reckon I said yes to about half of them!

I still have an expired jar of vegemite in my fridge which I still dig into once a while!

When it comes to my kids, Hot Mummee and I are quite particular about their hygiene and what they put into their mouths. However, visiting the wet markets and seeing the working parents who have their kids with them the whole morning to "fend" for themselves, I am curious to know how they still stay "clean" and healthy ...

Like someone's already commented earlier in another post in this blog, I think we don't give kids the credit they deserve.

Dr Pixie herself does not fret too much about her own kids (and to an extent, to mine) when they have runny nose or cough (under watchful eyes of course). Her stance is to allow the kids' defense system to combat these, to build up their own immune rather than rely too much on medication...

I like this...

Would you ever eat your kid's semi wet, semi finished biscuit?
Before I became a mother, I told myself I won't. But sometimes under certain circumstances, I actually did and that's awful yucky.

Would you ever not pick up a phone coz you do not want to speak to the person?
When I'm angry with my husband, I love to see him calling my mobile non-stop. *evil grin*

Would you ever brush your teeth with someone else's toothbrush?
Only my husband's toothbrush or sometimes my sisters'.

Would you ever eat a yogurt that is pass its due date?
I don't usually take yoghurt, but given yoghurt is actually fermented milk, an expired one- well I think I won't keep it! But like I said, I have expired fermented yeast which I still take! Vegemite! Which Caitlin has taken a liking to by the way!

Would you ever pick a crumb off the floor and put it in your mouth?
Depends on whose floor! Mine? I would! Kopitiam's floor- NO WAY!

Would you ever sneeze and wipe your hand on your pants/shirt?
I still do! On the pants!
Do you think lowly of me now?? :D

Would you ever wipe your kid's nose with your hand?
I do, but then go wash my hands quite immediately after!

Would you ever eat your kid's semi wet, semi finished biscuit?
Yes; those, as well as sandwiches, and even veges she doesn't like. Yes, chewed veges. It's just such a waste of nutrients.

Would you ever not pick up a phone coz you do not want to speak to the person?
Yes. Those "private" or no number callers are such a nuisance!

Would you ever go to bed angry with your spouse?
Yes.

Would you ever kick your fallen piece of chicken under the chair in a restaurant?
Yes.

Would you ever brush your teeth with someone else's toothbrush?
If I had to, but haven't yet other than Hot Mummee's ages ago.

Would you ever dig your nose in public?
Like a comment above, only in the car... and not usually when it's stationary!

Would you ever dig your ear in public?
Only with my finger to "scratch" an itch. I don't generally dig 'em.

Would you ever look into the mirror to check your hair/outfit or just how you look in public?
Yes. Usually only in the men's room, to check if: tie is straight, hair isn't too outta place, how oily my face has become through the day.

Would you stand by tables in a busy restaurant to book it?
Yes, only recently at the Ampang Yong Tau Foo!

Would you use your straw to dig your teeth?
Yes I do! But not incessantly. I have a few easy-to-get-to gaps in my teeth. Otherwise it's floss. Why don't you also ask if ppl floss in public?? I didn't say I do though!

Would you fart and then pretend it wasn't you?
Yes! It's quite fun.

Would you put the last item on another shelf behind the some untouched tins in a supermarket?
I think I did that once in a departmental store! I wasn't sure if I should make that purchase and needed to weight the decision, and also to check out prices of substitutes somewhere else!

Would you walk pass the bread line and press on the bread (in plastic covering)?
Nope. But I also don't check the expiry date. My mum does, do ensure she gets the one with the furthest date.

Would you pick up a ten sen coin lying on the pavement?
I probably would. Only earlier this year at a Sydney bus stop waiting for my bus, a lady dropped her $1 coin. A teenager saw it, wasn't sure to tell her or to wait till she got on her bus to get it himself. He knew I was watching behind my sunglasses from a distance. Eventually his indecision cost him, cos he had to get on this bus too. Guess who eventually picked it up??

Ann said...

Julie - hahaha....I think being a mother cahnges us towards our kids! but we always treat hubby the same! hahaha...

JLow -we are but human! Considering I wrote all of this, you can imagine I have done quite a few of it as well!

Would you ever eat a yogurt that is pass its due date?
yes.

Would you ever pick a crumb off the floor and put it in your mouth?
Mine, yes. My mom's, depends. No where else.

Would you ever sneeze and wipe your hand on your pants/shirt?
Yes. I have also this bad habit of pulling the collar of my shirt over my mouth when I sneeze at home. Saves one step. :P

Would you ever wipe your kid's nose with your hand?
when no tissue is available, then to the sink.

Would you ever eat your kid's semi wet, semi finished biscuit?
Depend on how mashed up it is. Usually, yes.

Would you ever not pick up a phone coz you do not want to speak to the person?
Did that once to Gadget-daddy when I was very mad at him. No one else as far as I know...

Would you ever go to bed angry with your spouse?
Yes.

Would you ever kick your fallen piece of chicken under the chair in a restaurant?
No. Usually pick it up and pack it home for my dog!! Happy dog.

Would you ever brush your teeth with someone else's toothbrush?
Yes, when I have no choice. Did it with Gadget-daddy and it happened with my mom too.

Would you ever dig your nose in public?
only in the car or public toilets with no one around.

Would you ever dig your ear in public?
Absent-mindedly maybe, if there's an itch.

Would you ever look into the mirror to check your hair/outfit or just how you look in public?
Yes.

Would you stand by tables in a busy restaurant to book it?
Yes. It's the Malaysian culture-maa.

Would you use your straw to dig your teeth?
No. I find my little pinky's nail more effective.

Would you fart and then pretend it wasn't you?
Not that I can remember...

Would you put the last item on another shelf behind the some untouched tins in a supermarket?
No. I usually pass it to the cashier if I decide I don't want something when I am at the paying counter.

Would you walk pass the bread line and press on the bread (in plastic covering)?
Not unless... No. I usually don't.

Would you pick up a ten sen coin lying on the pavement?
Sure. The biggest amount I had found was RM10.
