How old do they have to be for the Yuck factor to become a factor? What I mean is, when will my daughter stop putting things in her mouth that she finds on the floor? You know, the food she drops that is then covered in dog hair or other random dirt particles from the floor (especially considering I had major surgery less than 2 weeks ago and am not cleaning my floor right now!).
I'm also curious about this because DH and I are both pretty major germ-a-phobes and don't want our kids sharing germs with the whole world. Unfortunately, our families aren't getting the hint. I had to yell at my own mother to stop trying to feed her off her plate with her fork and DH had to get on to FIL while I was in the hospital because he was about to feed Lyla the left over, melted ice cream at the bottom of his bowl after he'd finished eating the actual ice cream. :puke: I want for her to get to where she realizes that it's gross to randomly share food and drinks with everyone. It grosses me out BIG TIME!
