son ate off the floor
« on: March 03, 2014, 08:20:49 PM »
hi
my teenager just dropped a scoop of ice cream on the floor and picked it up and ate it.
i am so pissed at him.
we have this puppy now, and she poos and pees in the yard and sometimes the house. now i'm really concerned that he could get ecoli!
why the f would someone eat off the floor.
i swear, between the puppy and the teenager, i'm going to be crazy!
LOL

Hahahaha, reading this made me laugh. You sound like me!

The chances of the floor having E Coli on it are slim, and his immune system and stomach acid will kill anything!

Unless he licked up a broken thermometer, I wouldn't worry. The cat once stuck his paw in my husband's mouth.

thanks. i just know that i haven't mopped the floor in over a week(housekeeper is coming today)and the puppy is tracking in god knows what.  and it was just an unnecessary risk. it's not like it was the last scoop of ice cream!! lol

i'm already at a really high anxiety level right now(my anxiety peaks and valleys) so i really just didn't need to add that one to the bucket.

this is a hard time of year for me i think. my anxieties add up quickly during this time of year for some reason. to top it off, i got this new puppy who brings on a whole new set of worries.

anyway, i guess i have about 72 hours to worry? or is it longer for ecoli! ?

My 1yr old licks the floor and he's fine!  That's what immune systems are for.

I just ate off the floor last night. My 5 year old daughter dropped a chicken nugget on the floor and said, "Whoops Daddy". I scooped it up and popped in my mouth and said "YUUUUUUMMMMMMMMYYYYYY!" and rubbed my belly. She laughed outloud:)

The old 5 second rule applies at our house, sometimes:)

Germs are an 'issue' with you, at times, Reece. This kind of stuff is a trigger for you, sometimes. This is OK, if you can get to some understanding (use some self help techniques) about it before it grows to hyper panic. And, try to realize that almost all of your fears throughout the years are framed by your anxiety issues, and almost none have come true (if any?)

Peace and Feel Well:)

I agree with floridaguy.  My daughter drops things on the floor and picks them up and eats them quite often.  I really don't mind.  I think there is such a thing as being too clean.  Actually there was an article on this topic.  A body needs to build up antibodies and it can be done through fighting small amounts of germs etc...

Yes, I have noticed you do have a bit of an issue with germs, but do try to keep it in perspective.  Normal living will expose you, and all of us to germs.  It's part of life.

HMMMM....  My 3 kids eat off the floor all the time.  Actually, the baby doesn't "eat" off the floor, she more "eats the floor."  As long as there are no Legos or choke-ables in her path, I look the other way.

3 kids in 4 years will do this to you.   ::)
